Frito Lay Review

Today I am testing and tasting three products sent to me from Frito Lay.

Frito Lay, first started with a dream in 1932. C.E Doolin had gone into a San Antonio cafe,and got him self a bag of corn chips. He soon learned that the maker of the chips wanted to sell. And that's when Mr. Doolin bought the recipe and formed the the company Frito's. He was eager to sell his chips and did so from his model T ford. At the same time Herman Lay was starting his potato chip business. In 1961, the two companies merged and Frito Lay was born. 

You will find the products in just about every store. And today, I get to try and review about these well known snacks. First up, the classic potato chips. Not only we're the chips tasty, they we're very fresh. They made a great side with my sandwich. Each bite was a crunch of goodness. I also wanted to try the chips with some dip, to see how they would hold up. They handled the dip great, with out breaking when scooping up the dip. The salt on the chips was just right, not overly salty at all. After you taste this great chip, you will understand why its been America's favorite chip for over 75 years.

Next up was the Tostitos with a hint of lime. With the upcoming Holidays, I must say all three snacks would be great on anyone ones table.

When you bite into this snack chip, you get the taste of fresh corn Tostitos with just the right hint of lime. Paired with some salsa I made, it was the perfect chip for the job. The chip held up great, when dipped into the salsa, the chip did not fall apart at all. I also wanted to go a step in another direction for trying the chip, and crushed it and used it as a breading on tonites chicken breast, that I was cooking. My family raved at how good it turned out. I didn't use any additional seasonings, just the crushed chips. And did the three steps, flour, egg, and chips instead of bread crumbs. And the chips held up great during the frying process.

The last snack to try is the Sun chips with salsa. These snacks are a great alternative to potato chips. Made from whole grains, and a hint of salsa, they contain powerful flavors.
You not only get a great tasting chip, you get all the flavors of a garden salsa. Its also a great feature that these chips are soy free. They make a great snack for anyone. The chip has a great crunch, yet it is still light and airy. It was the most flavorful multi grain product I have tasted. Having a salsa flavor, they are not to bold on the taste buds. The sun chip also held up great with a sour cream dip I made. The two combo's made a party in our mouths.

These snacks we're fantastic, and I would serve them any time. They also can be incorporated into many recipes.

If you would like more information, you can visit the company online at  or find them on face book or twitter.

Their website is filled with not only a ton of information, but a recipe page as well. Try these snacks, and I promise you, you will not be disappointed.
