We Got Our Hands on the New Lay’s Chips

Last month we heard the exciting news about four new Lay’s Do Us A Flavor chips soon to be hitting shelves. Today, the Every Day with Rachael Ray staff got their hands on three out of the four flavors, and the results are in.

 

 

Wasabi Ginger (our fave) had a nice kettle-cooked crunch and was reminiscent of wasabi peas, with the perfect amount of heat.

Cappuccino had a very potent artificial sweetened coffee smell, but there’s just something about coffee beans and fried potatoes that didn’t sit well on our palates.

Mango Salsa, though it smelled less offensive, tasted like mango bath soap. The fake flavor lingered for far too long.

Anyone try the Bacon Mac & Cheese yet? Let us know your thoughts!
