Last Sunday morning my husband and I were sitting in the livingroom and he was playing around on his phone and he saw the story from a few days ago that I guess kicked off quite the stir and differences of opinion. He said, "Oh … did you hear that Doritos might be making special chip just for women?" What in the world?
I looked it up and there was a hysteria about this resulting from an interview with the chief executive of PepsiCo and what she had stated was along these lines: women do not eat Doritos the same way that men do. They don't like to crunch too loudly in public and they don't like to lick the orange dust off their fingers" or pour the little broken pieces and all the flavor at the bottom of the bag into their mouth.
All this caused a stir and everybody thought that soon Doritos was going to be making a less crunchy chip just specifically for women and they were calling it Lady Doritos of course.
The news/rumor spread on Facebook and Twitter and the consensus of women sharing their thoughts on Twitter was "no thanks." In one tweet that I read, the lady said she's still laughing about Lady Doritos because she doesn't know a single woman who doesn't knock back the crumbs in the bottom of the bag. Someone else tweeted that Lady Doritos are just regular Doritos but when a woman buys a bag she only gets 77% of the chips than a man would. Uh oh!
A few days after this hit social media, PepsiCo came out insisting that this was all just a misunderstanding. They said no, they're not making a Lady Doritos. In fact they tweeted they already make Doritos for women: they're called Doritos and enjoyed by millions of people every day.
