Man Who Created Doritos Passes Away

Posted on October 1, 2011



The creator of Doritos passed away at 97 on September 20 in Dallas, Texas.

Arch West came up with the idea for the original Dorito after trying a fried chip on vacation back in 1961. Since that moment, the Frito-Lay company has expanded its line to 23 flavors.

West is said to have died of natural causes and will be buried with the chips that made him famous.
