Salty Snacks


To show their support for the LGBT community, Doritos introduced these limited edition Rainbows chips with all proceeds going to the It Gets Better Project. The non-profit organization’s mission is “to communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire the changes needed to make it better for them.”

So far, all the social buzz about #boldandbetter has been positive. A representative from the It Gets Better Project recently told Mashable:

“Doritos reached out to the It Gets Better Project because they wanted to celebrate the LGBT community and provide support to LGBT youth.”

The Cool Ranch flavored chips in brilliant rainbow colors are available exclusively online for a minimum donation of $10. So now you can eat your favorite chips in bold colors, knowing you’re playing a small part in helping your community.

I’m deaf now but at least I’m not hungry!

This Chevy Tahoe has four 18-inch subwoofers that produce 30,000 watts of chip-destroying bass. What were once bags of potato chips and Doritos are now nothing but little bits of chip confetti.

For the last three years, Lay’s has been soliciting new potato chip flavor ideas with a contest cleverly named “Do Us A Flavor.” Many of the flavors from previous years have been uninspired to say the least, but this year’s finalists actually seem like they would be incredibly delicious.

The four flavors include: Kettle Cooked Greektown Gyro, Wavy West Coast Truffle Fries, Southern Biscuits and Gravy, and New York Reuben. Man—this might be a tough choice to make.

On that note, voting opens up July 27th. And while we wait, there’s a video of Nick Lachey surprising each finalist with the good news after the break…

You know, because Chris Evans has the shoulder to waist ratio of a Dorito.

There’s danger in every bag of Doritos Roulette. Most of the chips are nacho cheese flavored, but one in every six chips is described by Frito-Lay Senior Marketing Director Jeff Klein as “melt-your-face” hot.

Doritos Roulette was first rolled out in Canada and Mexico but will be available in the U.S. for the next 12 weeks. You can follow the marketing campaign on Twitter at #DoritosRoulette for a chance to win prizes.

The aptly named Sticky’s Finger Joint, a chicken fingers chain eatery in NYC, recently unveiled their latest creation: cotton candy French fries. The dish blends delicious cotton candy with salty French fries, and special orders come with strawberry Pop Rocks and caramel sauce. God help us all.

Are you a big fan of desserts that are both salty and sweet? Then you’ll definitely dig Amy of Oh Bite It’s latest concoction: Ruffles Krispie Treats! They’re packed with tons of butter, marshmallows and salty chips.

Head on over to Oh Bite It for more pics and the full recipe.


Typically, Frito pies are fairly small, and they’re often served in the actual Frito chip bag. But Amy, of Oh Bite It! decided to make a pretty sizable nine-inch Frito pie uh…pie. Looks intense, right? This cheesy concoction calls for four cups of chili and two cups of cheddar–so yeah, this dish packs a lot of flavor.

I like potato chips. They’re salty and crunchy and incredibly tasty. The owners of Simply Crispy in Belfast also like chips and have opened a cafe where every sandwich is full of them. The idea for the cafe came to Andrew McMenamin after he read a story in The Ulster Fry. He then changed the name of his existing place, The Wee Cafe, into Simply Crisps. Customers can select the bread and the variety of chips they want to stuff it with. Apparently, the most popular selection so far is a soft, floury “bap” roll with cheese and onion chips.

If you’re looking for carbs, they’ve got you covered.
