Frito Lay All Natural Snacks. They say, “We Grow the Best Snacks on Earth.” I had saved an advertisement, but I couldn’t find it, which had this growing the best snacks slogan and there was a corn field with a bag of chips next to it. This definitely gives the impression that they are giving you a healthy product, and that they are growing their crops the way any normal farmer would grow their crops. And we see on their bags that the chips are “still made with all natural oil.” I would hope so! But Frito Lay brand chips are not a healthy snack. As The Greenway Communique points out about a bag of Cheetos Puffs, “here may not be any trans fat, but every ounce has one and a half grams of saturated fat and ten grams of total fat. As for the real cheese, it’s in there. Listed on the ingredients just after “salt.” So, one 11-ounce bag of these “nutritious” snacks will give you more than 150 percent of your daily fat needs with just a pinch of cheese.” Sounds like they are trying to cover up the facts with slogans about all natural oils, or using real cheese, or 0 grams of trans fats.
It seems to me that they are trying to gain attention by giving the perception that they are “going green” by making big announcements that they are going to use cars that are more fuel efficient (instead of using cars that can be powered off the grease from the chips), or amping up their website to make it seems that buying their chips will help save the world because they are using less water. The website reads “The biggest impact we can have is to not have one.” Sure, that sounds nice, and makes them look like they are trying and that they care but their products remain entirely unhealthy, and they are attempting to hid this, and that is the true test of how much they care.
