Even in a sturdy container, I would imagine that the shock of those boxes being shipped would cause many to crack. Compare them to another fragile good, eggs. Eggs are actually tougher than we give them credit for because of their shape. There isn't any specific weakpoint on an egg, the benefit of being rounded. But our oversized dorito, an oversized plane, will be weak just about everywhere. The boxes must be sturdy and very pillowy on the inside to absorb shock. Like I said, its possible but impractical.
Also given in this scenario that this was an unplanned accident at the factory, Lays corp would have to engineer, test, and manufacturer custom boxes and by then the product would likely be stale (where would they store the product in the meantime to keep it fresh? A doritos silo, lol).
