Things you might not know about Lay’s potato chips

Lay’s potato chips have been satisfying salty snack cravings for over 75 years. Although you may be familiar with the taste of Lay’s and its many flavors, there are some things you probably didn’t know about Lay’s potato chips, writes Tiana Attride in an article published by Business Insider.

In brief, here are some of those things that Attridge discusses in more detail:

  • Lay’s potato chips come in over 200 flavors. 
  • The popular chips were first sold in 1930s out of the back of founder Herman W. Lay‘s car.
  • After competing for nearly 30 years, Lay’s and Fritos merged to form Frito-Lay in 1961.
  • The company has held contests allowing anyone to submit ideas for chip flavors — whoever thinks of the best one can win $1 million. 
  • During a campaign called “Tastes of America,” Lay’s released eight flavors based on popular region-specific foods — like New England lobster roll in the Northeast and Cajun spice in the South.
  • Depending on where you are in the world, Lay’s flavors will change to reflect popular foods and tastes in different countries.
  • According to the company Facebook page, in 1944, Lay’s became one of the first-ever snack-food brands to advertise its products on TV.
