For years, you’ve bought PepsiCo products through a middle-man. Whether it’s your local grocery store, Amazon, or even a vending machine, you’ve always relied on a third party to sell you snacks.

Not anymore.

PepsiCo — which owns a ton of snack brands like Pepsi, Doritos, Quaker Oats, Tropicana and Lay’s — is now selling direct to shoppers with two new websites, with prices that can sometimes hang with Amazon.

What’s a good value and what’s not on Snacks.com and PantryShop.com? Here’s what you need to know:

 

Pick your own box of snacks, shipped free with $15 minimum order at Snacks.com.

PepsiCo has owned Snacks.com for a really long time, but for most of its life, it was a Frito-Lay snacking blog.

Now, you can build your own snack box full of Doritos, Cheetos, Rold Gold, and other chip-like baggies. To place an order, you have to spend at least $15.00, and you get free standard shipping (nice and slow, like Subscribe & Save).

 

Or pick from 13 different pre-packed snack boxes at PantryShop.com.

PantryShop.com takes a different approach. You can choose from 13 different types of snack boxes, with names like Snacking Staples, Rise & Shine, Family Favorites, and Hydration.

The packs cost $29.99 for the standard size, and some boxes come in a family size, which run $49.95. Standard shipping is free.

 

 

Snacks.com is no match for Amazon‘s prices (even without Subscribe & Save).

Snacks.com lets you custom build your own box of chips, dips, and pretzels, but almost every product has a cheaper unit price on Amazon.

That said, if you’re looking for more obscure products, Snacks.com actually has the edge. We found that Lay’s Dill Pickle Flavored Potato Chips, Fritos Jalapeno & Cheddar Cheese Dip, and Frito-Lay Munchies Snack Mix all had better prices than Amazon — and sometimes were half the price.

For Doritos, Cheetos, and other standards, though, Amazon remains your best bet. For example, a 9.75 oz bag of Doritos Nacho Cheese Flavored Tortilla Chips costs $4.29 at Snacks.com, while Amazon is offering a larger, 15 oz bag for just $3.48.

 

PantryShop’s Workout & Recovery boxes beat Amazon prices.

PantryShop’s Workout & Recovery boxes — in both the standard and family sizes — beat Amazon’s unit prices. The boxes, which include Gatorade protein bars, Muscle Milk protein shakes, and Propel flavored water, are $2.50 cheaper through PantryShop.

The “Rise and Shine” family pack is the biggest cost savings over Amazon, with PantryShop’s collection of Quaker products coming in at about $14.00 cheaper.

 

For the most part, though, Amazon prices beat PantryShop’s, and when it doesn’t, it’s close.
