This week is all about snacks! We are joined by Chris Bellinger, the Chief Creative Officer of PepsiCo Foods US, and the man behind the viral TikTok handle @FLVR_US; a community of people who have shared over 1,750 recipes using Frito-Lay brands as ingredients in cooking. Chris shares how in just six months the handle amassed one million followers and grew into one of the biggest branded food entertainment communities on TikTok! If you ever cared to learn about how brands go viral, this interview is a must-listen.

And of course, it’s not an episode of Beyond the Plate if we don’t talk about social impact. Chris discusses how Frito-Lay brings a smile to every bite by making a positive impact on their consumers. They work with countless organizations to give back to communities, some of which include The Birthday Party Project, Stacy’s Rise Project, GENYOUth and more. Enjoy this episode as we go Beyond the Plate… with Chris Bellinger of Frito-Lay and PepsiCo Foods US.
