Growing up, Fritos were always the last chips leftover in the value pack. While everyone hated them, I was always a fan.

Another thing I’m a fan of: tacos. I mean, what’s better than a combo of meaty deliciousness in a tortilla? This epic ‘Walking Taco’ or ‘Frito Pie’ or ‘Deconstructed Taco in a Fritos Bag’, that’s what. You can carry your tacos around in a Fritos bag, and the mess all stays in there.
