This week, Doritos unveiled a colorful twist on their classic tortilla chip: Doritos Rainbows.
Doritos has partnered with LGBT nonprofit It Gets Better to produce the limited-edition version of its Cool Ranch-flavored tortilla chips to show the chipmaker’s support of the LGBT community “in the boldest, most colorful way possible.”
“We’re honored to partner with the Doritos brand to celebrate the momentous progress that has been made toward equal rights for the LGBT community in this country,” Brett Peters, communications director for the It Gets Better Project, said in a statement sent to The Huffington Post. “By utilizing the incredible reach that Doritos has throughout the world, we can give hope to the LGBT young people who need it the most. There is so much more work to be done, and together, we will inspire the LGBT community and its allies to continue the fight and embrace who they are by living a #BoldandBetter life.”
