The Brief: A recent viral video on Twitter has prompted snack fans and celebrities to rank (and fight over) their favorite Lays chip flavors.
The latest Civil War has begun, and ironically, we all have Captain America to blame.
On Sunday March 10th, stand-up comic and actor, Kevin Fredericks shared a video via Twitter in which he and group of friends verbally dissected a variety pack of Lays Chips and ordered the six chip flavors, favorite to least favorite.
The chip choices include Original Lays, Nacho Cheese Doritos, Cheetos, Fritos, BBQ Lays, and Cool Ranch Doritos.
What is the correct way to rank these chips? pic.twitter.com/NYktna1HJo

Fredericks posed the question to Twitter and needless to say, shade was thrown.
That's It. PERIODT.

No. No. No. No! The correct ranking is:
3. Lays BBQ
4. Fritos – but only if you put them on your tuna fish sandwich (immediately prior to eating otherwise they get soggy) or piled on top of a bowl of chili.
5. Regular Lays
700th: Cheetos (gross!)

It seems snack fans get very salty (pun intended) when it comes to chips.
Fritos first all day. Them nasty ass bbq chips are last.

Perhaps the most heated discussion to come from the viral post, is the argument about where Fritos land on the list. Some people are very much in favor of the Frito…
1)Fritos 👑 🏆…
Then all the rest just doesn’t even matter…
6)Cool Ranch, i.e. Stank Breath

While others vehemently disagree.
Fritos above BBQ Lay’s? Fritos above anything is just plain wrong pic.twitter.com/zTXLeeKA6b

1. Cool Ranch Doritos
2. Nacho Cheese Doritos
3. Classic Lay's

Another point of contention has been the fight between Red (Nacho Cheese) and Blue (Cool Ranch) Doritos.

Husband: Cap is right.

It’s clear that this debacle has caused division within the office and workplace for many. Thanks a lot, Cap!
