Lays has a contest going on called “Do Us a Flavour” with the four chip flavour finalists being Grilled Cheese & Ketchup Sandwich, Maple Moose, Creamy Garlic Caesar Salad, and Perogy Platter. People may vote for their favourite.
My girlfriend and I taste tested each one (except the Perogy Platter, because I don’t like the real things, so I figured I wouldn’t like the chip version). They were $2 each at Walmart, so we said what the hell.
Creamy Garlic Caesar Salad
The taste was a little bit like Sour Cream & Onion – if they were left out for a few days. They lacked that desirable crunch, and felt a little chalky in your mouth. Definitely a unique taste. Rating: 3.5/5
Grilled Cheese & Ketchup Sandwich
(I had the photo for this one, but it magically disappeared.)
Why they would ruin it with a ketchup flavour, I do not know. Who the heck does that anyway!? Gross. They tasted cheesy, and a little chalky, but with a tang – that hint of uncomfortable, out-of-place ketchup. Not as crunchy as I would like – the cheese probably softens them up a bit. Prepare for a nasty stinky cheese smell, taste, and especially aftertaste. RIP your breath. Rating: 3/5
These were, by far, the most disgusting, most horrible-smelling, nastiest, grossest chips I have ever tasted. My girlfriend and I couldn’t even handle their smell from the bag. Were these actually supposed to taste like maple syrup or something!? They are a Canadian disgrace. They creator should be fined and declared an enemy of Canada. These repulsive chips tasted like something hazardous. They tasted like bacon chips dipped in oil and gasoline. I’d rather eat my cats’ turds dipped in syrup. We tried to like them, but we couldn’t bear them any longer and couldn’t even finish the bag. Someone can have them if they want. Rating: 0.00047349/5
Overall, the Grilled Cheese & Ketchup Sandwich and the Creamy Garlic Caesar chips, we thought, were the most tolerable-tasting ones. But for those rare times that I buy chips, I won’t be buying these Canadian abominations.
I’m still waiting for Tim Hortons donut- and coffee-flavoured chips!
