Lay's Sriracha is one of the three new Lay's potato chip flavors available as part of the "Lay's Do Us A Flavor" contest. I haven't had the chance to try the other two flavors, but I did get my hands on a bag of these. I have to admit.. I have never tried Sriracha sauce before so I have no idea just how spicy the sauce is by itself. I've heard that it is intensely hot and based on the picture on this bag I can only assume its going to be extra spicy. The chips themselves are a bit reddish in color compared to regular Lay's. They smell very mild and not powerful enough to indicate any real heat. The flavor is the regular salty lays taste with a nice heat that hits lightly and then burns the tongue a bit. After about 5 chips or so the burn is a bit more noticeable and at its maximum heat. I didn't notice any back of the throat burn or "creeping up on you burn" like you would normally get with cayenne pepper so i can only assume these chips are more mild in heat intensity compared to actually dripping Sriracha sauce directly onto regular lays chips. Should you eat these? Yes. If you want to try a new kind of spicy potato chip, give these a try. But don't expect them to be the hottest chips out there.
Lay's Chicken & Waffles is one of the three Lay's potato chip flavors available as part of the "Lay's Do Us A Flavor" contest. That contest has ended already and I'm a bit late in posting this review. Upon looking at this bag I thought to myself, "Ewww.. Denny's and KFC combined their flavors into what might be amazing chips!" The chips are a darker yellow in color compared to regular Lay's. When opening the bag, the smell is the first thing that you notice. Maple Syrup, a very strong maple syrup smell. The flavor is also Maple syrup but doesn't taste like waffles or chicken in the slightest. Its more like pancakes and some seasonings that might be included in a chicken fry mix... But not chicken at all. Its a more meaty flavor because of how greasy the chips are. These were the most unique flavored chips I've ever eaten and not unique in a good way. The first couple chips are interesting to try, but after 5 or so you'll notice a greasy film starting to coat the inside of your mouth and tongue. After 10 chips I thought maybe something else I ate was affecting the flavor. So I tried again the next day after I got home from work.. Nope.. Disgusting. Another 20 chips in and I couldn't stomach them anymore. Should you eat these? No. I'm glad these did not win the contest. Horrible chips. They reminded me of the failed Olestra Pringles. Not because of the flavor, but because of the possible side effects caused by eating them.
Kettle Brand Jalapeno Potato Chips are some of the best jalapeno chips available in stores. With that nice large red "Hot" pepper on the front of the package, I was expecting some good heat and these chips delivered. The chips are a nice gold color speckled with green jalapeno seasonings. But the flavor isn't just in those speckles, these chips are imbued with jalapeno flavor. After just a few chips you'll begin to notice the nice jalapeno burn sneaking up on you as an after taste. After about 5-10 chips you'll be approaching the full flavor profile of jalapeno perfection. Kettle Brand jalapeno chips are less salty and have less 'folded over' chips than other competing brands and that is what really sets them apart from the others. Every chip is very consistent with flavor and seasonings. The only downside to these are probably that they are a bit greasy, just like all potato chips. But the packaging does a good job at grabbing excess grease and seasonings and keeping it all stuck to the inside of the bag, mostly at the bottom. This reduces the overall greasiness of the chips to be a bit less than a regular bag of Lays. If you really enjoy the flavor of jalapeno and want every last crumb and bit of grease, after you eat a bag of these, cut open the empty bag and lick the inside for a special treat of unhealthiness. I actually did this once.. too much grease for me, but the flavor was very good. Should you eat these? Yes! These are some of the best jalapeno chips you can buy. Expect some good jalapeno heat. These are hotter than Lay's Sriracha chips.
