Tapatio-Flavored Fritos Making Nationwide Debut IN TWO WEEKS!!!

Thumbnail image for tapatiofritos.JPG

See that bag of Tapatío-flavored Fritos? It's now half-gone because I've limited myself to a daily fistful of the manna ever since we broke the news earlier this month they were debuting. It wasn't Lenten denial, but rather not knowing when they'd appear on store shelves outside random Costcos.

Now, I know the answer--they'll be rolled out nationwide (or at least Mexi-heavy areas) IN TWO WEEKS.

A source with Frito-Lay confirmed the company's plan, adding they recently held a tasting party for employees so they could try the Fritos and the four other brands (Doritos, Lays, Ruffles and another the source wouldn't identify), and they "went nuts." Stores, meanwhile "are foaming at the mouth"--just like I have for the past two weeks for that sweet, sweet . . . YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM. Seriously.

great stuff love that hot line of doritos.  For those wanting to try it but are afraid its inbetween 1st and 2nd degree.  Its a wonderfully good tasting heat.  Nothing like the horrific 3rd degree.  lolz

I left California for New York, and this revelation has missed my attention upon it's unveiling. I checked the Fito Lay site and they are not available within a fifty mile radius of where I live. SOMEONE MUST PAY FOR THIS!!!!

On that note, I've exhausted my options of places to purchase them, preferably in bulk online. If anyone knows of a place, I would greatly appreciate the contact information.

Cheers

For those of you around this area, just found them at 7-11 (Artesia/Norwalk). $.99 for Doritos (2-1/8 oz) and Fritos (2-7/8 oz). Got four bags but it's Lent and Friday, double sacrifice. This is like buying Girl Scout cookies, freezing them and eating after Easter. Gustavo, thanks for sharing this but if I open the bags and indulge, I'd have to do penance. Lo siento mucho... Have a nice weekend.

You deserve to get your fucking ass kicked for talking about a man's grandma like that. Are you out of your mind? You don't fucking disrespect someone's family like that! Seriously, get some dignity man, because when you die, this is the legacy you are leaving behind.

FYI, the people who fry up Frito Lay snacks are unionized, have benefits, etc. For food processing, they're good jobs. So while these chips won't do anything for your health, they help build the middle class. Enjoy!

Btw, glad Frito-Lay has been stepping up their game these last several months & im happy that Queso flavored Ruffles, Pizzerolas & several other flavors of FritoLays Sabritas brand have made their way over to the States. Also, of all the MDM Frit-os flavors, I know Tapatio aint one of them, then again I havent been over since Xmas!

To say you're a "Reader Leader" After ALL you just vomited here? Now, that's the joke of the day. Advice : Go hate somewhere else, nobody cares about your ignorant remarks.

jme, seriously, it is clear that your racist remarks are not welcomed. Being the educated, classy person you are, I am sure you understand this. Pepsi-Co owns Frito's not Mexicans or Americans or Chicanos, or hispanics - they are a huge corporation that seeks profits. Therefore they forgo racism and instead target different groups to make the most money. Surely in your great worldly wisdom you understand this. Rest assured if Pepsi felt they can make money by catering to only non -hispanics they would. Please dont make everything a race issue. This is a beautifully free country where you my dear can choose to give PEPSI money for Tapatio flavored chips or not.

I never said mexicants own frito!! I said their catering to them.. seriously read carefully next time before you speak.. I dont even drink soda.. I take good care of my body..If I knew how to post a pic, I would and you can see my body and what a Man is suppose to look like.. Are you all on here Fucking with me or all you just estupido??

hmmm, mcura doesnt know day from night, she assumes all WHITES drink pepsi, does not know the difference between owning and catering too,(shows till tonoght, mccura didnt know what, ''catering too'' meant).. HAHA, go back and read your replies to mine, it totally shows you didnt understand some words and it also showed you even read my whole comment.. haha, NEVER I SAID THEY OWNED IT!! hahahah GOD DAMN!! hahehe hehe, you ARE ESTUPIDO!!!

holy shit!! so many sheep on this post.. why does everyone on here want to be sooo mexican, but none of you travel there?? whats up with that?? Ive been to Mexico plenty of times and REAL Mexicans dont act like all of you on here.. you all have guilt for running north thats why you all try to follow Mexican culture although none of you will show your faces in Mexico.. I Love Mexico, I just hate Mexican culture In America..Its not even Mexican culture here, its Parasite culture.

Yeah, it is just too bad that the people on this thread aren't free-thinking individuals like you. Your ability to parrot the same racist bullshit that everyone has heard a million times really sets you apart from the herd. In fact, your theories of cultural contagion are so sophisticated and novel that entire universities have just been made obsolete by the force of your brilliance. Bravo, troll king, bravo.

Thanks but I cant tell if your just being a smartass..if your serious, Thank You or in guses language ''gracias'' but if your just being rude, Go fuck yourself!
