There are four new Lay's potato chip flavors you can try and vote for. As I understand it, only one can win and stay. So it's your duty, if you love potato chips, to cast your vote. I'm here to help you if you don't want to go to the trouble of buying and trying all four. I( of course) hunted these down, purchased them at once, and am now reporting back. I wanted some time to make sure I wasn't making a rash decision, but there is a decided winner. The flavors and opinions are as follows
1. New York Rueben - Yes
If you like a Rueben sando, then you will like this chip. The rye is present; the sauerkraut is there, and so is the corned beef. All around a very strange chip, but I was definitely a fan since I'm a sucker for the sandwich anyway, and the flavors went well with the potato chip. I would be interested in trying this as a wavy Lay's
2. Southern Biscuits and Gravy - Yes
Similar to the one above, do you like biscuits and gravy? If you do, you will like this chip. Those awesome sausage herbs and spices are really noticeable. I really enjoyed this chips, but am not quite sure what dip I could eat it with, perhaps gravy?
3. Greektown Gyro - No
I love a good gyro. In fact, my entire family does. It's one of my family's favorite foods. I would also venture to say that I have a broad palate. That said, this is the only chip that I would not recommend. Don't even bother trying. I saw a review that stated the writer had eaten a few and gave the bag away. I should have listened. The bag smelled of sour yogurt upon opening, which makes sense, but the chip tasted of: feta, olive, lamb, and herbs. All of these flavors should have made me happy, but Lay's chemical food engineering missed the mark here. This chip is gag worthy.
4. West Coast Truffle Fries - YASSS!
I know this is the safest bet of the four choices, since the flavor is potato based, but it really was the best chip. If you've had truffle fries you will not be disappointed. If you have not had the pleasure, eat the chips!!! I loved the flavor, and you could potentially pair it with a variety of dips, however they don't need the added flavor. Added flavor would be for funzies. The only negative were the powdered black spots. I can only guess they are supposed to look like "truffle powder." Don't look at the chip my friend, just eat!
I'm a not-for-profit worker that loves food, both healthy and indulgent. I've eaten the 12 egg omelette at Beth's Cafe: toast, hash browns, and all. Take that Adam Richman!
