Are you having a hard time deciding which is healthier or tastier between Pringles & Lays? You’re not alone!
In this post, we’ll be deciding once and for all who the king of potato chips is!
Are Lay’s and Pringles the same company?
Consumers have been asking to know if Lays and Pringles are made from the same company. As a matter of fact…they aren’t.
Pringles was originally owner by Procter & Gamble (P&G) as far back as 1968. It wasn’t until 2012 before the brand was sold to Kellogg’s who is the current owner.
Lays on the other hand (along with popular brands like Cheetos and Doritos) are owned by Frito-Lay. It may come as a sweet surprise to consumers to know that Frito-Lay is a subsidiary of PepsiCo.
So you see, Lays and Pringles are not from the same company.
