    Frito-Lay is a premium maker of potato chips and other bagged snacks. The company makes several styles of potato chips under various brand names such as Lay's, Miss Vickie's, Ruffles, and Simply Lay's. Chips range from basic thin chips, to thick and crunchy with a strong flavor. The original Lay's potato chip is a lightweight snack, which is prone to easily crumble. It comes in several flavors, the most popular of which are BBQ and Sour Cream & Onion. Lay's kettle-cooked potato chips are a hard, crunchy chip. The jalapeno flavor of this style rivals much higher end gourmet products. For those who love potato chips but are concerned about artificial flavors or colors, try the Lay's "Simply" line of chips. These are made with non-GMO potatoes and simple ingredients like sea salt and safflower oil.
