Ruffles are iconic and the classic star of parties, picnics, and snack time.
The original ridged chip is perfect for catching and holding any dip you want to plunge it into. And that fried, crispy, salty potato flavor is out of this world.
Ruffles come in so many great flavors you don’t even have to dip them if you don’t want to. Or you could experiment with your favorite Ruffles flavors and your favorite dips and spreads.
You can even use them in unconventional places in your cooking.
