Frito-Lay is an American brand of tortilla chips produced since 1964.The original ones were not made with flavors.The first Toasted Corn flavor was released in 1966.Specialty flavors began to appear in the late 1980s.There is a restaurant at Disneyland.
Many ads aired during the Super Bowl have gained notability for the brand.
Dorito is a contraction of Spanish doradito, a small fried and golden thing.
The original product was made at Disneyland in Anaheim, California, in the early 1960s.Using surplus tortillas and taking the original idea from the traditional Mexican snack known as totopo, the company-owned restaurant cut them up, fried them, and added basic seasoning, resembling the Mexican chilaquiles, but in this case being dry.At the time, Arch West was the vice president of marketing for Frito-Lay.He made a deal in 1964 with Alex Foods, the provider of many items for Casa de Fritos at Disneyland, and produced the chips for a short time, before it was overwhelmed by the volume.
The first tortilla chip to be launched nationally in the United States was released in 1966.
One-third of the total Frito-Lay sales in 1993 were for Doritos.In 1994 Frito-Lay spent $50 million to redesign the chips to make them 20% larger, 15% thinner, and rounded the edges.The vice president of tortilla chip marketing said that the change was due to greater competition from restaurant-style tortilla chips that are larger and more strongly seasoned.The design change was the result of a two-year market research study.The new design made it easier to eat and reduce the amount of scrap that comes from broken corners.The seasoning gave each chip a stronger flavor.The four flavors of the chips were released in January 1995.
In the United States, Frito-Lay eliminated trans fat from their products.Four years before the regulations became mandatory, the Doritos brand began complying with U.S. Food and Drug Administration labeling regulations.
The company was sued in 1993 by a man who claimed his throat was damaged while eating a snack.The shape and rigidity of the chips made them inherently dangerous according to his lawsuit.The study by the former chemistry professor calculated how best to safely swallow the chips.The study could not be presented as evidence because it did not meet scientific standards.
Sales of the snack fell in the United States in 2005.In order to increase sales, the company launched several new flavors, a new label, and more bilingual advertising.Joe Ennen, vice president of Frito-Lay, described this as the most significant rebrand in the history of the brand.

The It Gets Better Project, a non-profit organization that supports LGBT youth, was the beneficiary of the limited edition Rainbow Doritos product.Despite some controversy, the promotion raised $100,000 for the organization.

In 1996, The Onion featured an article with the headline “Doritos celebrates one millionth ingredient”, poking fun at Frito-Lay.
Concerns have been raised that some of the ingredients used in Frito-Lay products may be harmful.
In many countries, Doritos are sold in a variety of flavors.In 1966 they launched nationally in the United States with one flavor: toasted corn.Many consumers outside of the Southwest and West thought the chip was too bland and not spicy for a Mexican snack.After they were introduced nationally in 1967, Frito-Lay developed taco-flavored Doritos.The national distribution of Doritos began in 1972 and was a hit.In the late 1970s and early 1980s, there was a time when Sour Cream and Onion flavors of Doritos were available.There was a sesame seed chip in the late 1970s.Cool Ranch Doritos became popular in 1986.Cool Ranch Doritos are sold under the name ” Cool Original” in the UK and are called “Cool American” elsewhere in Europe, as ranch dressing is less common in those places.
In the 1990s, in partnership with parent company PepsiCo’s fast food brands, two new flavors of Doritos were introduced.The taco and pizza flavors were simply renamed after the restaurant division was spun off.The Toasted Corn was briefly discontinued due to the popularity of Frito-Lay’s Tostitos brand.The taco bell flavor was temporarily re-released under the “back by popular demand” label.

A sour cream flavor had been added to the recipe around 1985 and was different from the original taco flavor.The taco chips included in the “Collisions” bags were discontinued in most of the United States because customers thought they were closer to the original.In late 2010, the taco flavor recipe that was used in the 1980s returned in a limited edition “retro” styled bag incorporating the original Doritos logo, and in early 2011 the company announced that this incarnation would remain in its permanent product line-up.
