Is there anyone who doesn’t love potato chips? Even if there is, the percentage of people who do not like it as food is minimal.
The rest of the people around the world certainly can’t refuse one. The combination of crunchiness and various captivating flavors makes potato chips a favorite snack of millions of people worldwide.
And speaking of a preferred snack, we want to tell you about one of the market leaders who turned potato chips into something more than just a snack, namely Frito Lay. A brand that operates in over 200 countries and is famous for its mission to offer you healthier chips so that each of you can enjoy one. But how is Frito-Lay becoming one of the leading brands on the market?
The history of Frito-Lay dates back to the 1930s as two separate companies, known as “The Frito Company” and “H.W. Lay & Company.” A little later, in 1961, the two companies merged to become “Frito-Lay, Inc.” Four years later, Frito-Lay, Inc. merged with another company, namely Pepsi-Cola Company. That’s how it became PepsiCo.
Today, Frito-Lay is a subsidiary of PepsiCo, and the company is known for producing and selling potato and corn chips and many other types of snacks. Indeed, almost every one of you has tried its products such as Doritos, Tostitos, Fritos, and Cheetos.
They are part of the healthy versions of chips that Frito-Lay offers us. The brand’s goal is to limit sodium and saturated fat and add more fiber, whole grains, vegetables, and protein. This way, we can continue to enjoy our favorite chips, but in a much healthier way than before.
One of the brand’s primary goals was to create a healthier product that is still so delicious that we can’t get enough of it. And the flavors they offer us are over 3000. Some pretty exciting offers are Crispy Taco, Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese, and Fried Green Tomato. And that’s just a small part of it. However, with over 3,000 flavors, each of us will undoubtedly find our favorite chips from the Frito-Lay brand.
Cheetos is one of the most popular brands made by Frito-Lay. It is a crunchy corn snack that offers you fantastic flavors that you can’t resist. Cheetos was invented by the same person who created Fritos, namely Charles Elmer Doolin. As early as 2010, Cheetos was ranked as the top-selling brand of cheese puffs in the United States, but not only. This product is gaining great popularity outside the United States, becoming a favorite snack for movie nights, fun games with friends, and situations where you need to eat your favorite snack. Some of the fantastic flavors of Cheetos are:
- Cheetos Cheddar Jalapeno;
- Cheetos Crunchy;
- Cheetos Crunchy Canister;
- Cheetos Crunchy Flamin’ Hot;
- Cheetos Jumbo Puffs;
- Cheetos Mac and Cheese Bold & Cheesy
We all know what the Doritos brand is and what it offers us. And can we say that anyone can resist it? Certainly not. As part of the Frito-Lay family, Doritos offers us fantastic tortilla chips, and the flavors you can try are:
- DORITOS Cool Ranch;
- DORITOS Flamin’ Hot Nacho;
- DORITOS Nacho Cheese;
- DORITOS Spicy Nacho, and many others.
Fritos is another American brand that is part of Frito-Lay. Both Cheetos and Fritos offer a variety of flavors of corn chips, but not only. The brand is also known for its dipping sauces, which make eating this snack even more fantastic. What sets the brand apart from other tortilla chips is that the products are made by deep-frying extruded whole cornmeal. And one of the favorite Fritos of many people is FRITOS FLAVOR TWISTS Honey BBQ.
However, this is only a small part of what Frito-Lay offers us, but it is enough to understand that each of these products has its advantages and gives us a wide selection of flavors so that everyone can find their favorite.
