A recent study highlighted that 85 percent of gamers prefer Doritos as their go-to snack, revealing a global demand for a solution to eliminate crunching noises during gaming sessions.
Acknowledging the love for the signature crunch, ‘crunch-cancellation technology’ by Doritos maintains the crunch experience while ensuring fellow gamers or their fans aren’t disrupted.
