PLANO, Texas, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ready for flavor déjà vu? Last summer, the Lay's brand introduced new potato chips inspired by other fan-favorite Frito-Lay flavors that had fans asking themselves, "Wait, is this Doritos or Lay's?" Now, Lay's is adding another twist to summer snacking with the return of its iconic Lay's Flavor Swap lineup, including beloved Doritos, Funyuns and Cheetos mashups, along with the brand-new Lay's Kettle Cooked Fritos Chili Cheese.

"What makes the Lay's Flavor Swap lineup so much fun is the combination of flavors our fans know and love to create a new-but-familiar snacking experience," said Stacy Taffet, senior vice president of brand marketing, Frito-Lay North America.

We're excited to re-release these iconic swaps after last year's success and to continue delivering the flavor experience our fans are looking and asking for."
