Barcel Takis: the spicy chips everyone’s Takiing about

Takis tortilla chips first hit the North American snack scene in 1999. Takis aren't your average corn chips—they've got seriously intense heat, flavor, and crunch! If you've ever tried Takis, you know what we're talking about. They'll knock your socks off in the best possible way (but they aren't for the faint of heart 😉).
Takis took the North American continent by storm, going from obscurity to fame in the span of just a few years! At first glance, you might not even realize that Takis are tortilla chips. They're rolled instead of flat (for extra crunch) and they're also brightly colored. Most Takis are striking red or orange, which serves as a sort of warning sign that there's spiciness coming your way! If you come across green Takis, they're probably guacamole flavored.
Barcel Takis unofficial motto could be"go big or go home.\" Everything they do, from their bold flavors to their eye-catching packaging, is extreme. And that's what people love about Takis! Takis Chips are to. die. for!!
The Takis flavor line-up includes varieties that are"Fuego\"—if Spanish isn't your forte, that means"fire\"—and some milder choices like Salsa Brava and Guacamole. The best-selling variety is hot pepper and lime-flavored Takis Fuego, a great place to start if you've never had them before. If you're curious, grab a few bags from our website to try! Every once in a while, Barcel releases new or limited-edition flavors, like Zombie Takis: hot habanero pepper with a hint of cool cucumber.

Where did Takis come from?

Takis were invented by someone named Morgan Sanchez. But very little is known about Sanchez, about just how the now-famous spicy tortilla chips were invented, or about how they rose to fame so quickly. Based on the information we were able to dig up, it seems as though Takis were actually first introduced in Mexico in 1999 before making their appearance in the United States in 2006.
Takis is owned by the famous snack brand Barcel. Takis started out in corner stores and gas stations, but soon made their way into snack-lovers' hearts. At first, Takis were especially popular among teens, who are always on the hunt for new spicy snacks! People appreciated the fact that Takis brought something new and original to the snack game. Barcel has even won awards for innovation thanks to Takis! Now that's something to be proud of 😉
Originally, Barcel created Takis to target the Mexican and Central American snack markets, where consumers are particularly fond of lime and hot pepper flavors. But much to Barcel's surprise (and delight), Takis ended up being a huge hit with young people in another giant market: the US.
Barcel also makes other yummy snacks you may or may not have tried yet, including Churritos, Toreadas, and Kiyakis. Barcel is owned by Mexican multinational food manufacturer Grupo Bimbo. Grupo Bimbo, whose mascot is an adorable polar bear, is one of the largest food processing companies in the world, managing over 100 different brands.
