Doritos Creates “Lady Friendly” Chips
Doritos announced the new "lady friendly" chip will have a quieter crunch and won't be as messy. After posting the news on social media, they were met with immediate backlash. While I appreciate the idea of having chips that aren't as messy, specifically saying they're for women struck a nerve for me. Come on Doritos, you could have said "work friendly chips" or "movie theater chips," why "lady friendly?"
Are you saying I can't or shouldn't eat my chips like a man?!
Apparently they were trying to create a chip specifically for women. They even made the bags small enough to fit in your purse.
According to an article in the Daily Mail, "the company says women do not like to crunch loudly or lick their fingers in public while eating the snacks – unlike men." Please, we like to eat our chips and lick our fingers just like the guys. If we are in a position where we need to "eat like a lady," I guarantee you, Doritos are NOT what we are eating.
