Lay's Do Us a Flavor Contest

Potato Chips are one of my favorite snacks. By. Far! I've tried a whole lot in my time, some of which are brand staples, others that haven't lasted long at all. I frequently pick up limited-edition snacks just to try a new or unique flavor. You never know when you'll find a new favorite!

A while back, Lay's had a promotion on Facebook called Do Us a Flavor. It was a contest to create a new flavor potato chip for Lays. I saw some entries for flavors that looked inspired and delicious, and others that were downright strange! Recently, Lay's announced the 3 semi-finalists in the contest, and they're leaving it up to Facebook users to pick a winner!

Cheesy Garlic Bread, Chicken & Waffles, Sriracha


Cheesy Garlic Bread

My apologies, I don't have a picture for this one. I enjoy Sour Cream and Cheddar chips, so I thought I would really love these. I was a bit disappointed. The garlic taste was great, but the cheese flavor wasn't as prevalent as I would've liked. I sampled the snack size bag, and I was ready to be done with the bag before the chips were gone. That's never a good thing.

Chicken & Waffles

I can't say I've ever tried a Chicken flavored chip. (And trust me, I've sampled a LOT of potato chips in my time!) I've eaten Fried Chicken, I've eaten Waffles. This should taste like a combination of the two, and it really doesn't. These taste bad. Like, really bad. There's an attempt at maple and a hint of smokiness that just doesn't translate into a good-tasting flavor at all. I couldn't eat more than 5 before my stomach started to turn. Blech.

Hot chips seem to be trendy at the moment, but none of them are ever really hot. These are my pick of the 3 flavors, but they are definitely not as hot as Sriracha sauce straight from the bottle. They have a decent heat to them, a better attempt at heat in potato chips than some other brands, and I like that the heat built up as you ate through the bag. These were definitely the tastiest of the 3, and my pick to Save!

Have you tried any of the "Do Us a Flavor" chips from Lay's? Which one would you save?!?


***UPDATE***

And the winner is...
