I Love Frito Lay!!!! #fritofan

Recently I was sent an amazing pack of Frito Lay products for being a fan!! This pack came with a shopping tote, some of the classic Lays Potato Chips, some yummy Cheddar Sun Chips, and some tasty Tostitos with Lime! All of these really came in handy over the holidays with all of the snacking we had going on. We are huge Frito Lay fans in my house and here are some fun facts that you might not have known about Frito-Lay, in fact, I did not know most of these facts so I found them very interesting and thought I might share them with my awesome readers!!

  • Many of our chips are made with three simple ingredients: potatoes or corn, oil and salt.
  • We use all-natural oils, such as corn and sunflower oils, so our chips have 0 grams trans-fat.
  • Most of our chips contain less salt than you think!  A 1-oz serving of Lay’s® Classic potato chips has about the same amount of sodium as a slice of white bread.
  • We offer a Lightly Salted line of chips -- available in Lay’s® potato chips and Fritos® corn chips, which contain 50 percent less sodium than their regular counterparts.
  • All Lay’s® Classic potato chips, SunChips® multigrain snacks and Tostitos® tortilla chips are made with all natural ingredients, meaning they don’t contain any artificial flavors, artificial preservatives or MSG.
  • Many varieties of Tostitos® tortilla chips contain 8 grams of whole grain corn per serving, and SunChips ® multigrain snacks have 18 grams of whole grain and 2 grams fiber per serving.
  • Frito-Lay supports American farmers and buys the potatoes we use to make potato chips from 80+ farms across 27 states.
  • We use technologies that create renewable energy, such as solar panels and biomass boilers, in some of our manufacturing plants. 
  • Frito-Lay has the largest private, all-electric fleet of delivery trucks in the U.S.
  • All Frito-Lay manufacturing plants are taking measures to divert at least 99 percent of waste from landfills. One way we’re doing this is by reusing our shipping cartons up to six times before recycling them, helping reduce cardboard waste.

     This was not a paid post and honest/original opinions were used and they are my own. Thank you to the company and/or pr agency who supplied the product for review  Frito-Lay provided me with the chips!
