Lay’s Passport to Flavor

I picked up the 4 new Lay’s flavors on my annual trip down to Columbus which coincides with the release of the new chips.

Chinese Szechuan Chicken, Indian Tikka Masala, Brazilian Picanha, Greek Tzatziki

Greek Tzatziki

In Canada, we had the tzatziki flavour before in a kettle cooked chip, so the taste was not new. However, with the wavy chips, something changed. It actually works a bit better as a wavy chip than a kettle chip.

Brazilian Picanha

Ruffles has a steak flavoured chip available here and I wasn’t able to pinpoint what it was supposed to taste like. Ruffles usually gets the flavour right, especially since they specialize in wavy chips and can load the ridges with flavour. But for the steak flavour they had, I just wasn’t tasting it. The same goes for the Brazilian Picanha chips.

Indian Tikka Masala

I don’t think I’ve ever tried the real thing. Indian food is known for its use of spices and this one was no different. It was an interesting taste, a lot stronger than what I had anticipated. Out of the 4, this one is the most flavorful chip.

Chinese Szechuan Chicken

Another chip where I haven’t tried the real thing to compare to. There was a bit of a kick to this chip, which is always welcome but I’m not a fan of spicy.

 

The next post will be the Canadian World of Flavours chips, and a bonus flavour that came out this week that should have been the Canadian flavour.
