Salty Snacks


If you live in Canada and want to show affection for your fellow foodie without relying on the old chocolate standby, consider a bouquet of long-stemmed Doritos roses.

The arrangement of handmade ketchup-flavored tortilla flowers can be delivered to your valentine’s door for free, but only if you live in Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal.

Thankfully, for those who live nowhere near those areas, the delivery page offers step by step instructions for making you own.

Walgreens has secured the exclusive rights to sell hot dog-flavored Pringles in their stores, and are now hoping to secure money from curious foodies.

There’s no word on how the “Hot Diggity Dog” chips actually taste just yet, but we’re guessing they won’t dethrone the tubular mystery meat that is the undisputed king of summer.

Megan Campagnolo is responsible for these custom-made sweaters that feature hand-embroidered Doritos chips strewn across the front. Now you when you eat chips and leave crumbs all over yourself, you’re making a contribution to the art. You’re on the cutting edge of slob art my friend!

In fact, I think you deserve your own show. You’ll wear a white shirt and eat spaghetti all day. Genius.

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.

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…
