What Are Takis?

Takis are corn chip snack foods available in an assortment of zesty flavors. These rolled tortilla chips have a fresh, crunchy texture like Fritos corn chips, but unlike the Frito-Lay snack, they have a unique chile and lime taste. They also offer a salty and spicy experience.

As of 2014, Takis come in several flavors, including Takis Salsa Brava, Takis Crunchy Fajita, Takis Fuego and Takis Guacomole. Takis are a product of Barcel, a division of Grupo Bimbo, a maker of tortilla, potato chips and other confectionery and snack foods based in Lerma, Mexico. For people who want to mellow the taste of Takis, a ranch dip may help.
