You know these limp lady chips will cost at least 15% more than the man ones because they had to add a soft rubber grip to the bag.

I'm craving for some Doritos now.

It's their plan to make people talk about their brand (however absurd) and it's working.

Sounds silly but I donít care Doritos are my favorite chips. Love all the hot and spicy flavors.

I just finished the bottom of a bag yesterday. Donít dump it in my mouth though. I pour the broken pieces on a plate and use a spoon or sprinkle them over something else.

I can't stand them - they just taste like grit and stock-cubes to me, and they have a slightly nauseating after-taste.

They're not something I'll go out of my way to seek out, but there are certain times when I crave them.

Usually alcohol is involved during those times.

It's like how I only ever crave fast food when I'm at the airport.
There's just something about an airport that makes me want McDonald's, I can't explain it.

But they gotta be studying a particular demographic of women WITHIN the wider women demographic to even come to some of the conclusions that they did... lol I don't care if they study prissy, girly-girl types and decide that prissy girl-girls would prefer A over B, but don't then sit there and start making these claims as if it's now a generalized fact about women. It gets old when marketing likes to believe only one kind of woman/girl exists. It's why we now need 'special' chips, ink pens, etc, and why 95% of stuff "for girls" has to be pink or partly pink and left out of half of the fun stuff/cool because it's "for boys."

At that rate, as a previous posted comic suggested, why not just market special chip-eating tongs for those who are terrified of messing up their fresh manicure. And a sound proof diving helmet-like apparatus that isn't see through so you can eat chips in complete privacy without looking gross or unladylike. lol

So basically they will be selling a limp chip that has less flavor because they think that women will like it? Where the hell are they getting their demographic info from, prim old ladies and ulcer patients?

You know what I think would actually sell versus some lame 'lady chips' is the seasoning itself. Just put that stuff into a spice packet or container, and people can put it on whatever they want. They do it with Old Bay, why not this?

I told my sisters about this yesterday when we started tucking into the doritos at a get together, they just looked at me with a little confusion, I guess some care about it or it would't be a thing but I'm happy to skip the less flavored.

This right here is GENIUS.
You might just be in the wrong line of work.

Ladies, to protest this you gotta be rebellious against the misogynistic men.

Munch on your chips loudly, wear no makeup everyday, never shave your hairy legs again and definitely be loud and be proud, especially when you fart.

I don't wear makeup except on special occations, and wearing pants at work means no one could tell if I shave or not, anyway.

Makeup, never cared for the stuff and, like Duckie, only on special occasions.

Also, it's winter. Nuf said.
Spoiler:
Not my fave look, but fabric against the leg flesh hurts too much post-shave until stubble grows back. At this point, I choose spending winter warm than in pain. Esp with much of my time spent at work.

Don't worry, society, it will be 'remedied' come warmer weather...


I was never a fan of 'loud' though... No matter the kind you're talking about. Quiet sort by nature. Although I don't worry about natural chip crunch volume, that's just stupid.

I never wear makeup because I hate it. I don't even know how to properly apply it despite my age. lol

I don't shave my legs...hair doesn't grow there for me. Guess I'll have to start eating chips loudly, though.

I'm on the "no makeup" train as well, except for special occasions. Rare enough that I'm still pretty clueless on some areas


That and I don't think chips are very loud to begin with, so I don't know what the fuss is about there.

The main ways I know people are loud with chips are rustling the bags, smacking the lips, and open mouthed chewing. Don't forget making 'yum yum' noises and grunting.

A soft, discreet 'woman's chip' is no match for someone that eats like a barnyard animal.
