In Celebration of National Chip and Dip Day on March 23, the Tostitos Brand Uncovers the Good, Bad and Ugly of Party Snacking Habits Through National Survey
PLANO, Texas, March 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- No bowl is safe with nearly half of Millennial men, ages 18-34, admitting to conducting the biggest party foul in the book: double-dipping. To celebrate National Chip and Dip Day on Saturday, March 23, Tostitos, a leading brand from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division and the brand known for always dialing up good times, conducted a survey with ORC International interviewing more than 1,000 Americans from Feb. 14-17, 2013, about their chip-dipping habits. Survey results revealed that 39 percent of young adults admit to double-dipping, and 67 percent say simply dipping a chip makes them happy.
