Wondering what he’s going to do with all these limes…

He literally drove up in a Ruffles delivery truck!

Themed gift bags were handed out to all in attendance. And I’ve gotta say, I feel pretty left out not getting a Ruffles sticker and mini-chip bag pinback button… Pssst, Ruffles… Send me something! 😘

Jared Dudley and Quinn Cook were also at the event. No word if they’ve also signed with Ruffles.

There was a giant shopping cart filed with Davis sized bags of chips. I just want to know who made these props because they’re awesome. We could definitely use some FoodDoodz branded mega-scale chips for our studio.

Chip Deal

In June 2019 Anthony Davis became the first NBA player to sign a “chip deal.” What this meant was at the time was unclear.

In the announcement Davis breaks out the funny with some absurd humor reminiscent of Eric Andre.

Ever since I was a little kid my two passions have been basketball and Ruffles.

Wheaties has always been the gold standard of athlete endorsement deals. The Davis Ruffles chip deal shows that as tastes continue to evolve and eating habits change, so does the need for athletes to look toward other avenues for sponsorships.


Davis was recently traded from the New Orleans Pelicans organization to the Los Angeles Lakers to join up with LeBron James. A deal worked out by their joint agent Rich Paul. #LakeShow

Ridge Tops

Anthony Davis Shoe Surgeon Ridge Tops custom sneakers

As part of the initial “chip deal” Davis worked with Shoe Surgeon to craft a custom pair of Ruffles themed shoes dubbed Ridge Tops. The only way to snag a pair was to win a Ruffles giveaway. #RufflesSneakerSweepstakes

Flavored Lineup

I was surprised to see how many new flavors Ruffles had introduced lately.

Ruffles current flavor lineup: Original, Jalapeno Ranch, Queso, Cheddar & Sour Cream, Mozzarella 'N Marinara, Hot Wings, Zesty Cheddar, Flamin' Hot, All Dressed, Sour Cream & Onion

Grab some of these the next time you’re at the store!

  • Original
  • Jalapeno Ranch
  • Queso
  • Cheddar & Sour Cream
  • Mozzarella ‘N Marinara
  • Hot Wings (Double Crunch)
  • Zesty Cheddar (Double Crunch)
  • Flamin’ Hot

Double Crunch is a new offshoot of kettle-cooked Ruffles. Unfortunately for non-dairy snackers both flavors (Hot Wings and Zesty Cheddar) include milk. 😢
