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.
