      Fritos are the only chips that I take when we are traveling. There is nothing like watching the miles go by while munching on some Fritos, corn chips.

      I remember the first time I ever tasted a corn chip and I enjoy them as much today as I did then. I also remember a Halloween in the 60's where a friend of mine and her boyfriend dressed as a bag of Fritos and the Frito Bandido.
