The Origins Of Fritos

It had been a while since I sat down with a bag of Fritos Original Corn Chips, but there they were in the snack aisle in all their original simplicity and glory and I could not resist. Sometimes I like eating nostalgia and many times it is good, very good.

Anyway, while munching away in front of the computer, I began thinking about the humble origins of the little snack that made a snack empire and remembered a terrific NPR piece on the origins of Fritos from October 2007. I found it on the web and thought others might enjoy it so I am posting it here. It consists of the original NPR audio along with an excellent article with photos. Now would be the time to open that bag.

As always, comments are encouraged.
