Ruffles Introduces New Beer-Battered Onion Ring Chips + A Handful of Old Pennies

Plano-based Frito-Lay continues its flavor-palooza with new beer-battered onion ring flavored Ruffles, said to offer "guys the ultimate party snack."

Sorry, ladies. You just have to stick to plain ol' Ruffles with ridges.

Ruffles MAX beer-battered onion rings complements any tailgating party or guys' weekend and is available nationwide for only a limited time. So, go ahead and plan your next book club or play date, fellas. These won't be around long.

The Ruffles marketing department actually has a pretty funny Facebook page, if you're bored. There are mock-ups of "Thanksgiving Day Leftover" Ruffles and "Handful of Old Pennies" with a "Bolder Metallic Taste." Unfortunately, those are just jokes.

The beer battered onion rings aren't a joke, though.
