Hot Pockets brand sandwiches are owned by Nestle Foods, and children have been enjoying these hot sandwiches for at least two generations. But Hot Pockets aren't just for kids. There is now a wide variety of flavors and styles available in your grocer's freezer case.

History of Hot Pockets

Hot Pockets were developed in the 1970s by Paul and David Merage, who started producing the hot sandwiches for nationwide consumption in 1983 under the company name Chef America. The original Hot Pockets came in a variety of flavors, including barbecue chicken, chicken and broccoli, ham and cheese, ham and turkey and cheese, cheeseburger, pizza, meatball and mozzarella, Mexican-style and barbecue beef. It was these original flavors that made Hot Pockets a household name.

The company later sold to Nestle, which took the popular sandwiches international. The sandwiches are currently sold in Spain, Germany, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Brazil and France, sometimes under another brand name. For instance, in Canada, the sandwiches are available under the Stouffer's brand name.

Hot Pocket Products

What sets Hot Pockets apart from other hot sandwiches is the unique crisping sleeve, which allows the microwave to toast the pastry rather than simply warm it. These crisping sleeves are now commonplace for many microwavable snacks, but Hot Pockets developed the sleeve and branded it as a "Qwik Crisp." The sleeve allows a perfectly toasted sandwich to be cooked in the microwave in 2 minutes.

In the late 1990s, the company expanded the line by introducing four different types of pastry crusts. The Hot Pocket Croissants, Hot Pocket Calzones and Hot Pocket Subs featured the same meat, vegetable and cheese flavors available in the original Hot Pocket line.

Customers also had the option of reveling in the delicious low-fat versions some of the original sandwiches when the company announced the arrival of Lean Pockets. Shortly after the expansion, the company also introduced Hot Pockets designed for breakfast, featuring eggs, cheese, bacon and ham. All of the Hot Pocket flavors and pastry styles have been successful.

New Products
