Grabbing snacks by the handful does not have to be a mouth-filling exercise. With the new Frito-Lay Minis, enjoying one at a time or more than a couple brings a chose your own adventure to snack time. Ready to open a can and dig in?

Although some social media accounts might impress with a tiny food world, the reality is that small bites can pack big fun. Sometimes being able to play with food makes that moment even more enjoyable.

With the new Frito-Lay Minis, some classic snacks have been shrunk in size and placed in a cannister. It might be time to ditch the bag, grab the can, and wat.

As Stacy Taffet, senior vice president of marketing, Frito- Lay North America said “They say great things come in small packages and consumers will see how true that statement really is when they try the brand-new Frito-Lay Minis. There aren’t many canister options out there, so we’re bringing more variety and flavor to the snack aisle with this new product line, helping our fans enjoy their favorite snacks from Doritos, Cheetos and SunChips in a fun and shareable way. Featuring mini sizes and easy-to-pour canisters, Frito-Lay Minis is the perfect sidekick for any adventure, especially with holiday travel coming up!”

The new smaller sized snacks come in six flavors, Doritos Nacho Cheese, Doritos Cool Ranch, Cheetos Cheddar, Cheetos Flamin Hot, SunChips Harvest Cheddar and SunChips Garden Salsa. Thinking about these snacks, there are multiple ways to enjoy them. While many people will grab their favorite flavor, the smaller size invites the creativity to make a snack mix.

While Frito-Lay has done Cheetos popcorn and flavor swaps before, the idea of bringing tother some SunChips Garden Salsa and Doritos Nacho Cheese sounds quite tasty. Or, what about adding some Cheetos Flamin Hot with some Rold Gold pretzels. The flavor combinations and snacking potential are great.

In addition, the smaller size makes it easy to incorporate in other grazing concepts. Why can’t that charcuterie board have some Cheetos or Doritos Cool Ranch. Again, it adds a little whimsy to the snacking enjoyment.

The Frito-Lay Minis are available in select stores now. The suggested retail price is $2.79.
