Frito-Lay Chips Review and Quick and Easy Giveaway

Recently I joined the Frito-Lay Fan Program because I love me some chips and well some of my faves happen to be Frito-Lay brand. A few days after joining I did not expect what I found waiting for me at my front door. A package filled with goodies from Frito-Lay. Score!
I received a branded reusable shopping bag filled with an eco-friendly water bottle, a chip clip, 3 large bags of chips and a coupon good for a free bag of any Frito-Lay brand chip. The perfect surprise for a chip addict like myself. Here is a breakdown of the chips that I received:

Tostitos Scoops- I love these tortilla chips because like the name says they are perfect for scooping salsa, cheese and any other dip you like.

Lays Lightly Salted- This was my first time trying these. I enjoy the regular Lays but had never tried the lightly salted ones. They were good! Still crispy and full of flavor like the original but with 50% less sodium.

Sun Chips Original- It had been awhile since I had these chips and after trying them again I question why. These are good! I had no idea that they came in "The Worlds First 100% Compostable Chip Package".

Check out a few facts about Frito-Lay brand chips I learned.

  • They start with fresh, farm-grown ingredients, making many of their chips with just 3 ingredients. Potatoes or corn, all-natural oils and salt. No preservatives here!
  • They were the first major food company to remove partially hydrogenated oils from their cooking in 2003. Yay for 0 grams of trans fat!
  • They have begun to use all-natural seasonings to flavor some of their chips.
  • Many varieties provide whole grains a good source of fiber.
So you see it's still possible to snack on yummy chippy's (what we call them in my house) and not be completely unhealthy. Just an FYI my favorite Frito-Lay chips are Lays Kettle Cooked Jalapeno flavor and Funyuns and Cheetos Flamin' Hot and on and on...I really am addicted to chips.

If you would like to stay in the know about Frito-Lay you can follow them on Twitter or read their Snack Chat blog.

Now on to my quick and easy giveaway. I mentioned earlier that Frito-Lay generously included a free product coupon good for any of their chips so I thought I would share this with one of you.
