Pepsico CEO says company might consider making brand of Doritos for women

The CEO of PepsiCo said the company might consider making a brand of Doritos specifically for women and that got a whole lot of people talking.

The CEO Indra Nooy recently spoke on the podcast The Secret Life of C.E.O.'s.

She says men like to crunch chips and lick their fingers while women prefer quieter snacks and want to keep their hands clean from flavoring.

Doritos is now looking into ways snacks can be designed and packaged differently. And those snacks may be launched soon.

News of this snack created just for women has caused on uproar online, with many calling it sexist.

The company says this isn't an idea they're actually going forward with.

The Doritos Twitter feed had this response: "We already have Doritos for women -- they're called Doritos, and they're loved by millions."
