Frito-Lay Flavor Shots

PepsiCo‘s Frito-Lay snack division has launched Flavor Shots, a new lineup of poppable, single-serve packaged snacks in four flavors from Doritos and Cheetos.

Flavor Shots are available in four varieties, including new flavors: Doritos Fiery Habanero Triangles, Doritos Nacho Cheese Nuts and Doritos Flamin’ Hot Nacho Cheese Nuts. Cheetos Flamin’ Hot Asteroids are returning in response to popular demand, the company says.

The Flavor Shots offer a burst of intensity and crunch and are packaged in ready-to-go single units.

“For over 10 years, fans have overwhelmingly asked for Cheetos Asteroids to return to store shelves,” said Fauzia Haq, senior director of marketing, Frito-Lay North America. “The consumer demand could not be ignored and we’re thrilled to relaunch Cheetos Asteroids, alongside three bold Doritos flavors.”

The Flavor Shots product line now is available on store shelves nationwide. Doritos Flavor Shots Nacho Cheese Nuts and Flamin’ Hot Nacho Cheese Nuts are available in 1.75-oz. bags, Doritos Flavor Shots Fiery Habanero Triangles are available in 1.375-oz. bags, and Cheetos Flavor Shots Flamin’ Hot Asteroids are available in 1.25-oz. bags.

All varieties are available for a suggested retail price of $1.19.
