Arepa lovers are in suspense, after the famous potato chip brand Lay’s published an image on its Instagram account in which one of its famous packaging appeared, but with the design of a supposed new flavor: arepa. However, to the disappointment of the Venezuelan community, this is a ‘flake flavor’, that is, this new flavor does not exist and is not close to being released on the market.

‘This fake flavor is gold. What are your favorite arepa fillings?’ dictates the publication of the famous snack brand, clarifying that the publication that alludes to the Venezuelan flagship dish is just a strategy to interact with its followers.
How is the arepa prepared?
The arepa is a culinary product made from corn flour and is distinguished by its characteristic circular shape.. Although there are different opinions on how to prepare this dish, the most common recipe is the following. Its preparation is agile and lends itself to being filled with a wide variety of ingredients, such as ham, cheese, meat, chicken, butter, chorizo, among others, and you can even invent unique combinations with these and other elements.
Does World Arepa Day exist?
Yeah. Last September 9th, World Arepa Day was celebrated. This festivity has its roots in July 2012, when the Venezuelans in the World Organization (VenMundo), through its representatives Rafael Muorad, Luisana La Cruz and Tony De Viveiros, took the initiative to plan an event with the purpose of supporting Venezuelans residing abroad and, at the same time, promote the unity and integration of this community in any corner of the world where it is located.
