Ruffles for Men: Delicious or Dumb?

We're really not sure what makes a potato chip "for men" as opposed to for the general population, but Ruffles thinks it has it all figured out. The potato chip brand has launched its "Ultimate Chips & Dips" targeted specifically at dudes, The New York Daily News reports. The "man chips" have twice the size and depth of the ridges in their original Ruffles Potato Chips, and come in flavors like Sweet & Smokin' BBQ and Kickin' Jalapeño Ranch.

As for the dips, flavors include Beef N' Cheese and Smokehouse Bacon. Right ... because women don't like beef, cheese and bacon. We get it. But Ruffles is only the latest brand to zone in on the guys. Dr. Pepper 10, Pepsi Next and Coke Zero have all done the same. Do guys really think it's not manly to eat a regular potato chip, or drink a regular soda? We're not sure, but we think it's kind of silly. How about you?

    This will not make any impact on my decision of chips whatsoever. Make your Ruffles more like Sun chips and I might try them.

    Sun chips, yum!

    thats a dumb idea if you ask me but it makes the other guy look good the one that thought of the idea he is going to be rich

    Deliciously dumb, but it works. My husband will drink Coke Zero but "hates anything diet" His words.

    It's a little dumb but I wonder if they did that on purpose to ruffle a few feathers. Pun intended. Women may want to go buy them now just because of the sexist advertisement. Though I will buy them because I love all those flavors. Hopefully I don't get arrested at the grocery store for buying them though.

    Food companies of the world: please, for the love of god, stop equating different foods to different genders. It is incredibly stupid.

    Makes no sense that these would be 'man chips'! They sound good to me and I'm a woman.

    Dumb. Why would they play to the male, when its the women who do most of the grocery shopping?

    i see the scenario as we walk into a gas station 50% drunk and 100% confussed. We are hungry and we see chips that say man on it. We think hey im a man i want man chips. So we buy it and eat it.
