I love Lay’s potato chips but these flavor contests they’ve been having were lost on me (until now). The year several new flavors were released and I decided to try a few of them.
The Ruben tasted like Rye bread to me. Not bad but not great. There was an occasional tartness from the kraut flavoring but the Rye taste was the dominant flavor.
The Gyro (I’m a big gyro fan) had a B.O. smell/taste. Gross!
The Truffle version had no discernible truffle taste to it at all. I can handle a little truffle but I usually think it’s over done on dishes. This was more of a sour cream and onion flavoring but not as good.
That leaves us with Biscuits and Gravy. It tastes just like it’s supposed to! Subtle sausage seasoning and a powdered creamy component that, when mixed together, was outstanding.
I must not be alone in my desire for these. Like the elusive Chicken and Waffle flavor that was such a hit last year (I never got to try them because no one had them in stock), the B&G flavor is absent in all but a few obscure places. The local gas station has small $1.50 bags and Subway has all the flavors in the single serve bags.
If you’re going to jump on board and play the Lays Flavor Game start with the Biscuits and Gravy. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
