Whole Grain Snacking with Frito Lay

This giveaway has ended and the winner (clarkmurdock@) has been contacted via e-mail.

Frito Lay

As a parent, I’m always looking for simple ways to include certain things in our diet.  One of those things is whole grains and Frito-Lay has us covered.  No, I’m not saying we sit around and eat chips to get all of our whole grains, ha!  Wouldn’t that be great, though!?  They’ve made it easy to add in whole grains with big, bold flavors.  We recently got to try out the new Tostitos Hint of Jalapeno chips.  One word= YUM.  Seriously, we were sent two bags last week and one bag has already disappeared.  The other bag is meeting the same fate as the first.  They have the perfect “zing”.  It isn’t too much, Bryson (2) loves them, but it’s not too little either.  It’s almost like eating a chip with mild salsa- except without the salsa, it’s like it’s made right into the chip!  Pretty neat, huh?


A little bit of information for you:

SunChips multigrain snacks pack a punch with 18 grams of whole grains per serving and now they are available in Jalapeno Jack flavor for an even spicier snacking experience!

· Tostitos tortilla chips are another great option. Made with all natural ingredients – corn, healthier oils and salt, they pack 8 grams of whole grains into each serving. Two new Tostitos flavors have hit store shelves – Hint of Jalapeno & Hint of Jalapeno Jack – with a bolder whole grain snack!

If you do like to have a dip for your chips, here is a tasty one.  I’ve had different variations of this and it’s always good!  It’s also super easy to throw together and it’s great for a quick party food.
