I used to be in the vending business. Every year, Frito Lay would raise the price on their chips and shrink the size of the bag at the same time, We always used to joke that " now you would only be getting 3 chips instead of 4.

I am hoarding them to sell at a higher price later on.

I'm prepared to see $2,500 bags of Doritos on Ebay later on today. LOL

Frito Lay has been doing this for years. They have two options, raise the price or reduce the contents of the bag. Since the price is what most people pay attention to, the reduce the contents. A bag of Doritos around here has cost $3.29 for years, but the size of the bag has been 15 oz, 14 oz, 12.5 oz and now I think something like 11 3/4 oz.

Same deal with the 99¢ grab bag. To keep the 99¢ retail, they compensate for inflation of the material cost by reducing the contents. Pretty soon, you'll get one chip for your 99¢.....

First they came for assault rifles. I didn't have an assault rifle so I remained quiet.
Then they came for 3oz Doritoes. I didn't eat doritoes so I remained quiet.
I don't know where I'm going with this.

Actually I noticed a while back that they changed the recipe.

It used to have more of a soft cheese flavor that was nice. But now the new recipe (With the elictrical artwork on the package) has a harsh aftertaste that is mildly spicey... but unfortunately makes the overall product less appealling.

You can notice now that there are little red flecks on the chips to so I do think they added pepper.

I loved the cheese ones. I never did like the cool ranch ones...they were a tad spicy.

Well, they probably had to shrink their logo so they could conform to the new regulation requiring them to list on the back the ammount of trans-fats per serving. Something about Doritoes or Cheetos instantly makes me think of a Michael Moore type of fat slob dropping orange powder all over his gargantuan pit-stained T-shirt, while licking his fingers after finishing the entire bag by himself.

Frito-Lays pretty much dominates the snack food industry. At one time there were many brands of salty snack food, today we are reduced to a handful if that many. Remember Laura Scudders and Bell?

I, for one, am THRILLED that they have finally seen the light and down sized those little bags of Dorritos! You people who are sniveing about it should be ashamed!

Just how many of those little bags can you fit into that little assmonkey blind? Now you can fit 1/3 more! Just immagine...now you have more assmonkey thrust per squeeze!

Yeah, had some Laura Scudder's chips last week ... did they go out of business since or was I eating old chips?


Laura Scudders is not as widely distributed as it was years ago and you must look for it. But I was actually thinking of Granny Gooose Potatoe chips. Remember the old commericlal line? "Are you man enough for Granny Goose?"

Actually the various companies is reducing the size of their packages to the extent that it is giving some vending machines fits because it is sometimes too small.

I don't know (and personally don't care) about his sexual orientation, though many (here on arfcom and elsewhere) are 110% certain that he is.

I don't like him because he's a shitstain, plain and simple.

deej, please don't tell me that you have a Jeff Gordon poster on your bedroom wall.............

Jake.

P.S. Though I'm not particularly fond of *any* grandstanders, I'm willing to cut "tough guy" grandstanders (e.g. Earnhardt, even though I didn't particularly like him, either) some slack. Sissy boy grandstanders (gay or straight, black, white, red, blue or purple) are cut no slack whatsoever.

The new flavor of doritos sucks. The old stuff, I could eat till I was sick. It's probably for the best that they changed it.
