Lay's Potato Chip Flavor Contest
This year's flavors are as follows:

Bacon Mac & Cheese

Mango Salsa

Wasabi Ginger


I had the Wasabi Ginger, Cappuccino and Mango Salsa so far. Wasabi Ginger is by far my favorite. I don't like wasabi on sushi because the spice(? heat? not sure how to describe wasabi) sticks around, but with these it's gone in an instant, which for me is nice. Also you could taste the ginger as well, which was good. The Cappuccino is definitely worth a try for that sweet/salty combo. The Mango Salsa was could taste the fruit and a little spice but I won't go out of my way to buy it.

Last year's winner was Cheesy Garlic far the least interesting or creative flavor, so I figure this year's will most likely follow in the same vein and be Bacon Mac & Cheese. Haven't tried it yet, but I'll grab it if I see it in single size.

Cappucino with tater chips?!? Who came out with that brain fart? I'm not trying it since I just cannot picture myself ever having any tater product with a cup of joe much less cappucino!

The first few chips of Mango Salsa was pretty good but then the fruity taste along with the tater chip texture started playing with my mind and taste buds.

Haven't seen the Bacon Mac yet.

Wasabi id definitely the best of the 3 I've tried so far, altough I was hoping for a little more wasabi "punch".

They've actually been out for about a month now, at least up here.

Mango - I read a review that said they taste like bath & body lotion. Can't disagree, although I've never tried to eat bath lotion. But I would imagine it would taste similar.

Mac & Cheese - not bad, but nothing special as mentioned.

Wasabi - better than I thought they would be; my biggest complaint is actually the kettle chip texture. This flavor on a regular chip would be pretty good.

Cappuccino - as horrifying as they sound, I think these are pretty darned good. Have already bought several bags to hoard in anticipation of them losing out and being gone forever :sad:

I liked the bacon mac & cz and the wasabi. I don't like ruffles so I won't try the mango. The cappuccino was just goddess awful. I think that wasabi would make a nice topping for a tuna casserole.

I haven't tried any of the 4, but I heard the cappuccino was the worst by far.
