Doritos Inventor Buried With Beloved Chips

Illustration for article titled Doritos Inventor Buried With Beloved Chips

Raise a chip for Arch West, the Frito-Lay executive credited with inventing Doritos in the '60s. West died last week at 97 and his family plans to dust his grave with a layer of Doritos before burying his urn. It seems like a fitting tribute, but hopefully the folks behind Cheez Whiz won't get any ideas.
