Yeah, Of Course Frito Lay didn't squash this shit, assuming some woke cunt herself didn't make up this story to get brownie points. It's a perfect underdog story that appeals to the people who buy Hot Cheetos, male losers wo have no class and no taste. Also, the story makes more sense anyway, Mexicans have been sticking hot pepper on salty snacks since time began.

>Flamin’ Hots were created by a team of hotshot snack food professionals starting in 1989, in the corporate offices of Frito-Lay’s headquarters in Plano, Texas. The new product was designed to compete with spicy snacks sold in the inner-city mini-marts of the Midwest. A junior employee with a freshly minted MBA named Lynne Greenfeld got the assignment to develop the brand — she came up with the Flamin’ Hot name and shepherded the line into existence.

Because nobody really gave a shit? And companies like good PR?
You’re retarded if you think some janitor could make that shit up, ‘steal’ credit, and keep claiming it to such effect; the whole thing was surely signed off upon at the corporate officer level.
He literally went from janitor to executive; that sort of shit doesn’t happen unless it comes from the top.
