Deep in the Heart of Doritos

My history of Doritos was a story a year in the making; it required a trip to Texas to see the flagship Frito-Lay plant and some detective work to track down the snack’s then-96-year-old inventor, Arch West (who has since died, alas). But you can now read it on the Maxim website, with or without a bag of chips at your side. And if you prefer your snacks extruded, I can tell you that my visit to the Frito-Lay plant exposed me to a ridiculously delicious thing I will probably never taste again: warm Cheetos, fresh off the production line.
