New Flavor Offers Deeper Ridges for Maximum Dipping and Taste

PLANO, Texas, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The real food flavors of classic hot wings are soaring into the chip aisle as Ruffles, one of the many brands that makes up PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, introduces Ruffles Deep Ridged Classic Hot Wing flavored potato chips inspired by Buffalo Wild Wings.

With ridges two times as deep as regular Ruffles potato chips, it is a flavor sure to add a kick to just about any gathering.
