From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Lay's Stax is a snack food made from potatoes and produced by Frito Lay. It was introduced in 2003 to act as competition for Procter & Gamble's Pringles. In addition, they are manufactured completely on a gluten-free line, differentiating them from most competitive products.

In Brazil they are on the market under the brand name "Elma Chips Stax" since late 2006 in the flavors "Cheddar", "Sour Cream & Onion" and "Original" (Regular). Elma Chips is a Brazilian brand of Pepsico Inc, also known for "Stiksy", among others. The yellow lid is marked with "Lay's Stax".[1] In Venezuela, they were introduced in early 2007 with the flavors "Cheddar", "Sour Cream & Onion" and "Natural Flavour"


Stax vs. Pringles

Stax are thicker and are less prone to breaking in the package. Pringles are lighter and thinner. The shape of Stax is a simple curve, while Pringles are formed into a double-curved saddle shape. Stax are gluten free, while Pringles contain wheat starch. Stax are packaged in recyclable plastic packages,[1] while Pringles are packaged in cans consisting of cardboard and metal. [2] Pringles have more flavors, while Stax comes in cheddar, salt and vinegar, original, sour cream and onion, ranch, and mesquite. [3]

In spite of the popularity of Lay's Stax, the availability of the chips is often spotty. For instance, Lay's Stax cannot be purchased anywhere in New York City.[4]
