More from Frito Lay

Here is the second response to my wailing and gnashing of teeth about the discontinuation of the Flat Earth fruit flavored chips:

Response from Frito-Lay RE: one of our products, Reference #010381042A

Hi Betsy,

Thank you for writing to us.

I, too, share your disappointment regarding our discontinuing the fruit crisps. Though the products were delicious, we were unable to get enough consumers to switch to sweet-tasting snacks.

Have you visited the "For Your Health" section at www.fritolay.com? There you can get information on ingredients, nutrition and healthy snacking as well as a list of snacks that are lower in sodium.

I did go take a look at the list of the sodium content in their snacks. You'll notice that the 2 Flat Earth chips are right up there on the top of the list and there's not much else on that list that has as low sodium content that they had. It's a darned shame. Those things were awesome.
