Doritos' Partnership with Rock the Vote and Limited-Edition Bags Rally Millennial Voters - a Rapidly Growing Voting Contingent - to Take a Stand, Make a Choice and Vote
PLANO, Texas, Sept. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The youth vote in America has decreased by double digits since 1964. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, one in two Americans ages 18 to 24 did not vote in 1964; by 2012, 62 percent did not turn out to polls. With the Millennial generation set to become one of the largest, most diverse – and perhaps most important – voting contingents in the country (CIRCLE), Doritos, a brand built on bold choices, is out to show the boldest choice you can make this year is one at the ballot box.
This election season, Doritos, one of the marquee brands from PepsiCo's Frito-Lay division, is partnering with Rock the Vote, the largest non-partisan, non-profit organization in the country dedicated to building long-term youth political power, to engage and mobilize young people to register to vote and participate in elections.
As part of the Boldest Choice campaign, the Doritos brand is introducing a limited-edition Doritos bag created for those not registered to vote. It has no taste, no crunch and no chips to illustrate that, if you don't make a choice, you don't get a choice.
"This election season, Doritos believes the boldest choice is making a choice," said Jennifer Saenz, senior vice president and chief marketing officer, Frito-Lay. "We have always believed every single person can make an impact – we all have a voice and it's important we exercise that voice and be heard. Our campaign reinforces the idea that if you don't make a choice, someone else chooses for you."
As a brand known for being bold, Doritos is rallying for one of the most important causes in America – making a choice at the polls. To bring this message to the masses, Doritos is joining Rock the Vote on its Truth to Power bus tour to various stops at college campuses, beginning with a stop in Denver, Colo., on National Voter Registration Day. Doritos will also join Rock the Vote to rally youth voters at additional stops in Madison, Wis. and Chicago, Ill.
"It's impressive to see Doritos step up this election season as corporate partners, committed to engaging and mobilizing young people to embrace the historic power of our vote," said Jesse Moore, vice president at Rock the Vote. "Millennials represent the largest, most diverse voting bloc in our nation's history, and, given that the stakes have never been higher, it's encouraging to see companies like Doritos work with us to champion a stronger more inclusive future for young people."
Starting tomorrow, National Voter Registration Day, consumers can order a bag of "No Choice" Doritos at www.Doritosredvsblue.com/Vote and send them to someone they know who is not registered to vote. Doritos hopes the bag will encourage them to make the boldest choice – registering to vote online and then going out and making a choice by casting a vote November 8.
To bring the Boldest Choice concept to life, Doritos created a vending machine that dispensed the provocative bags instead of the consumer's snack of choice to students not registered to vote. Only registered voters got their choice of Doritos Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch from the machine — demonstrating that when you're not registered to vote, you don't get a choice and, if you are, you do. (Though all participants will receive samples of Doritos Nacho Cheese or Cool Ranch regardless of voter registration status). People's reactions are captured in the video www.Doritosredvsblue.com/Vote.
For 25 years, Rock the Vote has been at the forefront of helping to register and turn out young voters. This year, the organization has launched a multimillion-dollar national campaign called Truth to Power — including the national bus tour — to engage and mobilize Millennials across the country in the 2016 election. Working with nonprofit and corporate partners like Doritos, Rock the Vote aims to register two million new voters before Election Day on November 8th and to help drive Millennial turnout in key swing states.

Doritos believes there's boldness in everyone. We champion those who are true to themselves, who live life fully engaged and take bold action by stepping outside of their comfort zone and pushing the limits. Doritos is one of the many brands that makes up Frito-Lay North America, the $14 billion convenient foods business unit of PepsiCo (NYSE: PEP), which is headquartered in Purchase, NY.

Hundreds of batches
Determined to craft the best kola using our quality ingredients, we tested batch after batch and spent months talking and tasting kola- until the right balance was achieved. Our kola recipe is comprised of a blend of sustainable Fair Trade cane sugar, kola nuts from Africa, a special blend of spices from around the world, and a hint of citrus. And, when poured, you’ll notice Caleb’s Kola has just the right amount of carbonation resulting in a distinct foamy head. We love it and hope you will, too.
Kola Nut Extract
With a unique, slightly bitter flavor and a small amount of caffeine, the kola nut is an evergreen tree nut originating from the tropical rainforests of Africa. The nut itself is the fruit of the kola tree and can range in size from as small as a chestnut to as large as potato! Widely used to flavor drinks, we’re extracting the kola nut’s natural flavor as the key ingredient in Caleb’s Kola.
Fair Trade Cane Sugar
The cane sugar we use is certified Fair Trade, which helps support local farmers and promotes sustainability. The unrefined qualities of our cane sugar gives our kola just the right touch of sweetness.
While searching for the perfect combination of flavors and ingredients, we turned to our very own kitchen cupboard for some inspiration. Our secret blend of brown spices comes from around the world and gives Caleb’s Kola its unique flavor.
Kola and citrus are a perfect match! While great on their own, their combined flavors create an entirely new experience. The oils from the citrus fruit give Caleb’s Kola a sharp flavor and amazing freshness you won’t find in other kola.

Not that we’ve ever dunked our noses into a glass of Pepsi, because we’re not total weirdos, but according to a new patent filed by the soft drink manufacturer, PepsiCo Inc. is looking to develop a “scent capsule” under the cap of its plastic bottles so that each time the bottle is unsealed, a refreshing smell wafts over as you consume the sugary goodness. Sounds like an odd idea, but smell is one of our most primal senses, so we’ll play along here.
Received earlier this year, the PepsiCo patent accounts for a system where a gelatin capsule would be embedded into the cap. Upon the opening of the cap, breaking the seal, this capsule will rupture, releasing comforting scents to help consumers enjoy their drink a little more.
