As Seen on the Show

When the Sun is Back, it’s Time to Pack the Snacks


Think that snacking is synonymous with summertime? Enter: Frito-Lay’s U.S. Snack Index explores where and how Americans will snack this summer!

In fact, the new U.S. Snack Index shows that nearly nine out of 10 Americans believe snacking is important to summer occasions or can’t imagine summer without their favorite snacks.

And – when it comes to hitting the road – of course, snacks are on the travel packing list for more than seven out of 10 Americans, *every* time.

A recent survey also reveals America will host more than 750 million summer gatherings from pool parties to barbecues!

If you’ve already secured your invite and you’re wondering what to take – here’s our little secret…Chips! Take chips!! They’re popular across most summer occasions with just over half of Americans making them the snack of choice for gatherings.

It’s time to enjoy “The Perfect Side of Summer,” with crowd pleasers like Frito-Lay snacks.

As part of the U.S. Snack Index, Frito-Lay asked which snacks would make a cameo in their ‘summer selfies.’

When you decide to snap a selfie with your favorite snack, how about a bag of Doritos Nacho Cheese tortilla chips or Tostitos Scoops tortilla chips and Salsa!? Frito-Lay’s U.S. Snack Index shows that when it comes to taking selfies, corn and tortilla chips are perfect for rooftop gatherings, and potato chips reign supreme for photo-worthy snacking if you’re headed to a backyard barbecue, cookout or picnic – so you should consider Lay’s Classic potato chips. And if summertime fun means… the beach, pool, road trip or even a sporting event – these Cheetos crunchy snacks make the perfect snack and photo partner.
