What are Lays Poppables?

Lays Poppables are a light-textured and crunchy potato snack. It is not a chip but a multi-dimensional and saucer-shaped. The potato bites are perforated and airy. They are very fun and offer a different taste, texture and crunch compared to a regular potato chip. They pop in your mouth, hence the name “Poppables.” Lays Poppables are produced and marketed by PepsiCo through Frito-Lay. 

History of Lays Poppables

Lays is a potato chips brand founded by Herman Lay in 1932. The first operating unit was launched in Nashville, Tennessee. He bought the Barrett Food Company in 1938 and renamed the company “H.W. Lay Lingo & Company.”

In 1944, the name was shortened to “Lay’s Lay Lingo Company.”

In 1961, Herman Lay’s firm merged with the Frito Company to form Frito-Lay. Later in 1965, Frito-Lay and Pepsi-Cola merged to form PepsiCo.

Lays Poppables, a healthier and interesting version of potato snacks, was released in March 2017. It became an instant hit due to its unique shape and texture. Compared to regular potato chips, Lays Poppables contain lesser calories.
