  • Frito Lay discontinued my favorite chips!
    • Crying [:'(]

    For a couple months I have been looking for the Dill Pickle Lays.  Couldn't find them anywhere and I finally called Fritos customer service and found out they had been discontinued!  I told them to bring them back - the reason I didn't buy more was that once I started eating them, I couldn't stop.  They went great with Diet Coke.  Now they think I'm nuts!  Did anyone else like these?  Probably not, as low sales are almost always a reason a company delists a product.  Maybe I'll lose a few pounds now...

     I just saw an ad for them not 10 minutes ago. They must not be selling south of the border. And I think they'd have pulled the ad if they were not being manufactured here....

    Odd; but I've never seen or heard of them here in So Cal. I like plain Fritos, and they have hot and bbq flavors, but no dill pickle. I wonder if its a regional thing, or they're only sold in certain areas?

    If the spirit moves you, you can call and inquire about the Dill Pickle Lays potato chips too.  I think it would take thousands of calls to bring them back, but unless you let a company know you miss something, you never even have a chance of seeing that product again.

    I rarely eat chips, but when I do, it's either the dill pickle flavor or the salt and vinegar. I am sure that you will be able to find a substitute made by a local or regional brand. For us in the Upper Midwest, Old Dutch makes these yummy flavors.

    I know someone who works for Frito, I'll have to try to remember to ask him about them.

    Darn it!  Now I have to go get my bag of Dill Pickle chips!  They are open in the pantry.  I think Canadians eat a lot of Dill Pickle and Salt and Vinegar, I sure dont' see them discontinuing them any time over here!

    Renee, I think we Californians are out of the loop. Frito must think we don't like dill pickles.

    I don't think I've seen them either (I'm another Californian), but I don't generally like flavored chips.  I like the 1/3 less fat Ruffles.

    There are some alderwood smoked chips that I like too.

    So what?  Big deal.

    Hey, I remember those commercials! Those neurons are really firing up now!

     

    If you have to have a potato chip, Old Dutch makes a fine one.
