Everything About Takis

What are Takis?

Takis have skyrocketed to become one of the most popular snacks in all of America – and consequently, the rest of the world! Initially developed by Barcel in Mexico for the Latin American market, the crunchy and savory snack has become a staple in millions of people’s daily eating habits!

The popular snack is a spin on the traditional rolled up corn tortillas called “taquitos.” Taquitos are a widely popular dish in Mexico and several other countries in Latin America.

The company has fully embraced their title as a cult favorite snack food amongst Gen Z and the rest of America and have become known for their wild experimentation with flavors!

The traditional Taki flavor is covered in their spicy orange powder, but the flavor remixes are the gift that keep on giving, with everything from the spicy Fuego falvor to the odd-looking but delicious Blue Heat. At some point in 2020, there were even Zombie Takis!

The popular snack is widely available in most big box retailers and grocery stores, as well as online retailers. You can get them on Target, Walgreens, CVS, and order them online at Amazon.

You can also get Takis for free simply for playing games on your phone with Playbite!
