    Not Satire.

    Not too long, women around the globe have struggled under the yoke of noisy, messy snack foods.

    Chips crunch. Doritos crumble in-mouth with explosive volume. Cheetos leave the kind of powdery finger residue only a hard-working, indomitable man could tolerate.

    But at last, the gender-alert officials at PepsiCo — parent company of snack maker Frito-Lay — have recognized the struggle and moved to make life better for women everywhere with the idea of lady-friendly chips.

    These kinder, gentler Doritos will have a less-audible crunch and won’t leave as much luscious and all-natural Cool Ranch powder on the dainty fingers of she-snackers.

    PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi told Freakonomics Radio: “As you watch a lot of the young guys eat the chips, they love their Doritos, and they lick their fingers with great glee, and when they reach the bottom of the bag they pour the little broken pieces into their mouth, because they don't want to lose that taste of the flavor, and the broken chips in the bottom. … Women I think would love to do the same, but they don't. They don't like to crunch too loudly in public. And they don't lick their fingers generously and they don't like to pour the little broken pieces and the flavor into their mouth.”

    It’s a well-established rule of etiquette that a proper lady never pours the flavor into her mouth. But in the modern era, is it fair that a woman should do without delicious, flavor-dusted corn-ish chips simply because her consumption volume would shatter the feminine mystique?

    Of course not. This is a new age, and companies like Frito-Lay are embracing the feminist motto: “We’re here, we’re strong, and we hope nobody notices it when we’re eating chips!”

    So they found a way to market a reduced product lacking the ingredients normally used, then stuck a marketing tag like this to peddle it and you can bet it cost more. Today s business graduates at work. Does that mean they remove the powered sugar from powdered doughnuts to make them Lady friendly. Oh the genius at work

    Yep. Its sort of like how Dominos has magically managed to get a large pizza in the same space as a medium used to be.

    Everybody Can Calm Down Now Because Lady Doritos Are Cancelled

    Lady Doritos are no longer happening, thanks to 24 hours of Twitter backlash PepsiCo received after its female CEO announced the company would be releasing a quieter, cleaner version of the snack.

    Indra Nooyi told a Podcast earlier this week that her company was toying with the idea of creating more ladylike snacks. “Although women would love to crunch [chips] loudly, lick their fingers and pour crumbs from the bag into their mouth afterwards, they prefer not to do this in public,” she said.

    Naturally, this created major outcry on social media. A barrage of triggered women vowed to crunch chips loudly in an effort to dismantle the patriarchy.
