Lay’s Cappuccino Potato Chips

You might have noticed the surge of oddly flavored potato chips hitting the market the past year or so. Sriracha. Chicken & Waffles. Wasabi Ginger. And Cappuccino. Yes, Cappuccino. Potato chips that taste like cappuccino. I saw them and I had to buy them. Because they are fucking potato chips that taste like cappuccino. I bought the bag, took it home, opened it up, and took a whiff. It smells like coffee. Salty coffee with a hint of stale milk. I was slightly worried, but I still picked up a chip. I studied it before I popped it into my mouth. It looked like a chip covered with instant coffee powder. Then I popped it into my mouth. It tasted like a chip covered with instant coffee powder. None of the flavors really mesh well, and they all cancel each other out. It’s a crunchy texture with a bland sweetness and a hint of coffee. I wouldn’t say that it’s salty but you can still taste salt, it’s just lost in the flavor confusion. There’s a touch of cinnamon, but it’s barely detectable. Lay’s Cappuccino Potato Chips look a lot more intimidating than they really are. They aren’t good, they aren’t bad. They are more of a novelty than a snack.

Lay’s Sriracha Potato Chips

Lay’s Classic Potato chips are the stereotypical American potato chip. They are small and greasy and nothing special. Until now. Now they have a Sriracha-infused potato chip, it’s part of a customer contest that brought us a few other potato chip flavors, such as Chicken & Waffles and Cheesy Garlic Bread. The Sriracha flavor is probably the best of the bunch. The first chip you pop in your mouth tastes like a regular Lay’s chip. But as you start munching on more chips, they start getting hotter and hotter. The spicy flavor isn’t apparent at first, but it slowly starts building its intensity. It creeps up on you like a good sativa. The spiciness lingers long after each bite. You’ll be sweating after a handful. I think it’s the perfect amount of spicy. Less intense than Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, but still hot enough for a jalapeno lover. Give them a try.

Lay’s Garden Tomato and Basil

Lay’s classic potato chips get a slight flavor boost. It is reminiscent of a margherita pizza. It’s like they dehydrated a pizza sauce or Ragu or something and added that to chips. Try them, you might like them. I’ll stick to normal flavors like sea salt and salt & pepper and salt & vinegar. American flavors.
