What is it about Frito corn chips that make them taste so nasty, yet sooo addicting?

I can't stand the taste of Frito's, but if you stick a bag in front of me. I'll eat the whole damn bag.

Is there a subliminal message on the bag? Are they laced with crack or something? Why can't I stop eating these greasy disgusting chips?

I don't think I have ever bought a bag of Frito's, but this girly I know is always bringing them over.

Frito pies are ok, but Frito's alone are just ->

Have you ever lit one on fire?

They burn like candle wick, saturated with combustable oils.

Don't ask what promted me to burn a Frito.

Whatever it is, I bet it could be enriched into some volatile component that could be used in a WMD.

Haven't you noticed that ANYTHING with that much grease and salt tastes good,
so long as it is deep fried?

It is the oil/grease that burns.
Corn starch just chars.

Plain Fritos. Corn, corn oil, salt. Simplicity in ingredients, complex cooking. Unlike other corn chips, they are not made from masa (corn that has been soaked in a calcium hydroxide solution to soften the seed coat).

And yes, they burn only because of the OIL.

When I throw Fritos at ants, they tend to avoid them.

They were better when the "Frito Bandito" was their advertising gimmick.

At least is just corn, oil and salt in those things.


Look at what they put in say a bag of doritos, the ingredients is a paragraph long.

Maybe the manufacturing process is like wine making......a big vat of corn gets mushed & kneaded by foot

I can't eat the things plain, must have bean dip or chili & cheese slathered on...

They taste like rotten cardboard that was mixed with cigarette ash and street salt.

Fritos suck.
