BBQ Fritos Are Back In Rockford But Only For A Limited Time
When Bar-B-Q Fritos disappeared from store shelves just a few years ago, fans were shook.
How upset? A petition on change.org has over 20,000 signatures to bring back the chips.
Well, it might not have been the sheer amount of interest that brought back the beloved chip, but the cause behind it.
Fritos has brought back Fritos Salutes patriotic-themed packaging in time for Memorial Day. Up to $200,000 in proceeds benefits Carry the Load to honor the nation’s military and first responders. You’ll notice a banner at the top of the limited-edition packaging.
As a bit of a chip eater myself, I used to find myself bouncing between the Chili Cheese and Bar-B-Q Fritos during grocery trips.
Since these are only going to be around for a limited time, it looks like I'll only be picking up the Bar-B-Q variety of Fritos.
You can start picking up the limited time Fritos at Dollar General stores around Rockford now. They come in 1-ounce and 9.25-ounce bags.
There are more than 10 different Dollar General locations in the Rockford area.
