About Ruffles

Ruffles are a classic potato chip that has crunchy ridges, also known as crinkle cut. They have an epic, big taste. They’re great for snacking and as an accompaniment to meals. It’s a party of flavors that dances on the palette. Ruffles are synonymous with sports games, movies and other American pastimes.

The company started in 1948 but Frito Lay acquired it in 1958. Later, they merged with H.W. Lay & Co. in 1961. Ever since, Ruffles has worldwide acclaim and is popular in places like Mexico, Brazil and Canada. Today, PepsiCo owns the Ruffles official brand.
