PLANO (1080 KRLD) - Plano-based Frito-Lay says we're eating a lot of salty snacks during the Coronavirus confinement.

The company's latest "US Snack Index" shows sales of Lay's Potato Chips are up more than 30 percent and their Tostitos Tortilla Chips are up more than 40 percent.

In fact, company spokesman Mike Del Pozzo says the entire category of "salty snacks" has been the second-best seller during the Coronavirus crisis, second only to toilet paper.
