Kick Off BBQ Season with Frito-Lay and Pepsi Next – #FritoLayFreeForAll Reader Giveaway

In some parts of the country you’re already set for outdoor entertaining and BBQ season.  Unfortunately, here in Minnesota, we had snow THIS WEEK!  Frito-Lay and Pepsi invited me to throw a BBQ to try out their new products, but since the weather didn’t cooperate, we had to keep the fun indoors with a basketball-viewing party.

The awesome snacks and drink we tried out were:

Cheetos® MixUps Xtra Cheezy Mix and Cheetos® MixUps Cheezy Salsa Mix
•    Looking for a family snack everyone can agree on?  New Cheetos MixUps offer four shapes and four flavors in every bag.  Something for everyone to love!
•    “Feeling a little zippy?  New Cheezy salsa Mix-Ups spice up your favorite Cheetos cheddar puff with salsa picante, jalapeno, and chipotle cheddar!”
•     “New Xtra Cheezy MixUps have four cheese flavors all in one bag!  Try cheddar, parmesan, double cheddar and nacho cheese flavored Cheetos!”
Doritos® Locos Tacos Flavored Tortilla Chips
•     “What’s better than tacos and Doritos? Taco and Nacho Doritos flavored tortilla chips all in one bag!”
•     “It’s like a crunchy delicious taco and your favorite Nacho Dorito all in one bag! Can you handle this much kick in one tortilla chip?”
Pepsi NEXT
•     A game-changer in the cola category: the first to deliver real cola taste with 60% less sugar than Pepsi-Cola
•     After years of research and development, we’ve unlocked the great taste of Pepsi NEXT, the choice for consumers who want real cola taste with less sugar.
•     If you love the taste of Pepsi but they don’t believe you can achieve full-flavor taste with a diet cola, then you have to try Pepsi Next to believe it.
•     Pepsi NEXT is crafted from the right mix of cola flavor and a blend of sweeteners to closely match the real cola taste you expect from Pepsi, with 60% less sugar.

We had a blast trying out these new snacks.  We cooked up some BBQ pork sandwiches and then loaded up all the empty space on our plates with the Cheetos MixUps and the Doritos Locos Tacos chips. Everyone had their own personal favorites. Mine was the Cheetos® MixUps Xtra Cheezy Mix. I thought it was fun having four different shapes and flavors all in one serving. Little R, on the other hand liked picking out just the “regular” looking Cheetos puffs.  I giggled when I saw him smiling with those classic orange Cheetos teeth!

We all had a super-fun time and loved the new snacks. See how excited Mario is?  I honestly don’t know if that’s because of the basketball game or because of the Doritos Locos Tacos.  My guess is that it’s the Doritos!

Now YOU have a chance to try out these new snacks too!
