Chip update

It’s been a while, things have been busy for me. Lays released their Do Us a Flavour chips in Canada: Butter Chicken, Montreal Smoked Meat, PEI Scalloped Potatoes, Cowboy BBQ Beans.

Picked up at a Wal-Mart though they were available in almost every major store I went to.

From left to right on my shopping cart:

PEI Scalloped Potatoes

I have something against potato flavoured potato chips. There’s really nothing you’re adding or taking away by making it a chip. In this case, it’s pretty much just cheese flavoured.

Montreal Smoked Meat

The flavour is actually the whole sandwich, not just the meat. It was very similar to the sandwich, I can taste a hint of pickle in addition to the spices.

Butter Chicken

Quite a buttery taste but heavier on the spices. I haven’t had butter chicken before so I’m unsure of the taste accuracy.

Cowboy BBQ Beans

The wavy chip actually makes the chip taste worse. I’m not sure what the intentions were but I couldn’t taste any BBQ in it.

Doritos Collisions (Habanero + Guacamole)

I have a beef with these Doritos. The bag portrays an even split between the two flavors. In each of the 3 bags I purchased, the ratio was roughly 70/30 in favour of the Habaneros. The habanero chips weren’t too spicy and the guacamole chips were okay. The main complain is the unevenness of it.

But this gives me an idea….

Lays had a Grilled Cheese and Ketchup flavour 2 years ago which tasted nothing like what I ate for a lot of my undergrad. If Lays combined two different chips (1:1 ratio!) into the bag, it might actually work out for them!
