What can make Lay’s potato chips even tastier? Bringing snack flavor mash-ups to the bowl, of course. When you cannot decide which snack to enjoy, Frito-Lay has created the best of both worlds.

Snack trends evolve in interesting ways. From incorporating global flavors to bold spice, the snack aisle is crowded with all the various options.

At the same time, classic flavors will never go out of style. Whether it is something familiar or comforting, the reality is that after the simple joys of that food satisfaction will always bring a smile.

How are Lay’s potato chips embracing this snack flavor mash-up?

In a recent Frito-Lay announcement, Lay’s potato chips have adopted two other popular snack flavors. If you have ever wondered what a Doritos of a Funyuns potato chip would taste like, now everyone will have an opportunity to pop open a bag.

Two new Lay’s potato chip flavors will be available for a limited time. They are Lay’s Doritos Cool Ranch and Lay’s Wavy Funyuns Onion.

New Lay's potato chip flavors

The Lay’s Doritos Cool Ranch brings that zesty flavor to a potato chip. While the potato chip is a little thinner than a traditional Doritos chip, the flavor combination is good. Think about putting ranch on a baked potato. The flavor combination really works.

For the Lay’s Wavy Funyuns Onion, it is a new take on an onion forward chip. Funyuns have a unique flavor. In some ways, this potato chip for people who like onion but don’t like sour cream.

Also, it is really important that Lay’s used the Wavy style potato chip for this offering. The texture seems to enhance not just the flavor but also the enjoyment.

Thinking about this concept, it is a really interesting idea to see two snack brands “Flavor Swap.” Given the long list of snack brands under the Frito-Lay line, this idea could continue for a long time. From Cheetos to Nacho Cheese Doritos, there could be a whole line of swappable options.

Looking at the recent Lay’s limited-edition flavors, these flavors swaps seem to embrace a different food trend. Instead of global flavors or transforming other food into a snack, this idea shows the versatility of snack brands. When people love a particular taste, why can’t it be used in different ways. Maybe a Doritos Cool Ranch seasoning could be on the horizon. Wouldn’t you put that flavor on a baked potato?

For now, the new Lay’s potato chips featuring the Doritos Cool Ranch and Funyuns are available while supplies last, at participating retailers.
