Back in the early ’60s, Arch West not only had the name of a go-getter marketing executive, he also had a job to match as VP of marketing for Frito Co. He also had the vision to create Doritos, the snack that has filled the bellies and stained the fingers of countless nibblers across the globe. Sadly, West recently passed away at the age of 97, but he’s going out in style. [More]

This package of Doritos contains Doritos and yet, is so much more.
A grocery growth ray is set to hit a popular condiment and several kinds of baked corn with names ending “tos.” To push the brands as being good values, Heinz will be selling slightly larger ketchup bottles, and Frito-Lay is adding 20% to Tostitos, Fritos, Cheetos and Doritos – without raising the price. Unlike the grocery shrink ray, you can bet this change will be loudly trumpeted on the package.

Happy Memorial Day, everyone! John Brownlee here. After a 7 hour flight from Dublin to Boston magically transmogrified into a 19 hour ordeal, I’m finally in Boston for a couple weeks. Say, when did they change that Doritos package, anyway? I don’t approve. There’s a Memorial Day Parade going on outside my window. Immediate observation: Malden High School lets fat girls be cheerleaders now. A good move. Those cheerleader pyramids need a firm base.
