There have been some hits and misses with the Lay's Tastes Of America. I distinctly remember how terrible the "biscuits and gravy" and the "chicken and waffles" flavored ones were. Here's the latest batch and some mini reviews. I found all of these at Quality Dairy except for the Fried Pickles w/Ranch.

Giordano's Deep Dish Pizza! Had a bag of these at the studio and the overwhelming decision was THUMBS UP! Great flavor and very reminiscent of pizza. Folks approved of this one.

Truth in advertising. They literally taste like someone put ketchup on a potato chip. So if you're into that sort of thing. Just in case french fries aren't handy.

This one got the most negative reviews of the new batch. Folks said they really didn't taste too much bacon or not enough spice for the jalapeno. And a lot of folks said it really reminds them of sour cream and onion.

Now, this is not Lay's. But one of my personal favorites. It really does remind me of cheese sticks and marinara. And not in that overwhelming, off putting way. It's a pretty cool and delicious flavor for a chip. They got this one right.

The wild card. My friend said these were on the shelves in Fairbanks, Alaska. Looking for them here in Michigan. Will let you know when I find them. For more on this flavor and a couple we missed, peep this video. And be on the lookout for:

  • Cajun Spice
  • Chile Con Queso
  • Chesapeake Bay Crab Spice (this sounds gross)
  • New England Lobster Roll
  • Pimento Cheese (equally gross)
  • Thai Sweet Chili
