Takis is called a rolled corn tortilla chip snack, and is shaped much like small tortillas. Takis does not look like the typical “chip” but is being labeled as that anyway, despite looking more like a mini tortilla of sorts. Takis is often compared to Flamin' Hot Cheetos in terms of its spiciness, although Takis is a much more dense and crunchy snack then crunchy Flamin' Hot Cheetos. Takis is said to be invented by a person named Morgan Sanchez, though little information about this person and how exactly did they invent Takis could be found. It does appear that Takis was invented in the year 1999 in Mexico, before being introduced into the United States in the year 2006.
