Trying Out The New Lays Tastes Of America Chips

So Lays is doing this thing where they have different chip flavors depending on where you live. They are called Tastes of America. Plus you can win prizes if you enter the code on your bag.

Here are the flavors for my area. I'm in Texas.




My son loves to eat, so I decided to test out the chips with him.


First up was the Chile Con Queso.



They had a delightful cheese flavor with a little bit of a kick. I love spicy things, so I enjoyed these. My son liked them too.


I went for the West Coast Truffle Fries next. I was excited about these. I took a bite and at first they were good but then a weird taste filled my mouth.

My son felt the same way.



It sort of reminded me of what feet would taste like if they were in a sweaty sock most of the day.

Not for us.


Finally, we had the Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Popper flavor. I tend to love things with bacon, so I thought I'd enjoy them.




Well.

Not really. They had a strange smokey flavor that I couldn't get past. Tommy thought they were okay and could finish the bag, but he wouldn't want to buy them again.



So which ones were our favorite?

Not surprisingly, it's the ones that didn't taste like feet or funky smoke. I would buy this flavor again.




My son agreed!


My cat Ruby was wondering what on earth we were doing outside.


"We're trying chips, Ruby. Want one?"

She said nope.

What are the flavors in your region? There's a Fried Pickles With Ranch flavor that I really want to try!

If you go to Amazon, you can buy all the bags for less than $20 here. I'm tempted to do this. That way I can try all the flavors.

Have you tried these chips yet?

  2. I love chips and really enjoy trying out new flavors. They are perfect for enjoying outdoors during the summertime.

  3. Lays really aren't a thing here in Australia but Aussies are super big on chicken flavoured chips (it still is something I'm not used to). I think I would like the cheese flavoured ones the best!

  4. I want to try the fried pickle flavor!! It looks like the closest one to us is fried green tomatoes, lol.

  5. I love that Lays does this. It is sometimes boring just to have the same old thing all the time. This has such flavor. It is such a different flavor each year. Although there are some I wish they would keep around more than just The little bit that they do sometimes. I love Lays

  6. Oooh! Looks like Deep Dish Pizza and Fried Pickles with Ranch are for my region. I would try them both!!! I LOVE Giordano's pizza and fried pickles... I mean, not together, but yeah. I would also try the Chili Con Queso flavor. Sounds delish!

  7. Pimento cheese is the flavor for my southeastern region and I'm looking forward to trying it. I hope they are as good as I imagine they will be. I'm sure I won't be able to eat just one.

  8. Lays has some really crazy flavors these days! I would definitely try out the Chili Con Queso! The rest, I'm not so sure about, lol. It's very cool though that they come up with so many flavors.

  9. Such interesting new flavors from Lays. I would like the truffle flavor. I like the taste of truffle. I wonder when this will hit the Philippine market?:D

  10. I love the Truffle Lays! We love all the new flavors, and absolutely love checking out the regional Lays when we travel!

  11. We haven’t tried all the flavors. We will probably get the ones you like the best. The guys still want to try bacon ones. We will see

    ReplyDelete
  12. Now these sound like some interesting flavours of crisps! I don't think we get them over here though I'll have to look around as I would love to try them!

    ReplyDelete
  13. These looks great, though it i not yet available in my country. would surely try, once it comes

  14. What a bummer that the bacon wrapped jalepeno popper flavor wasn't better! That one sounds amazing! In fact, they all sound great, so I'm glad I read this and I will just buy the queso ones!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I am not a big potatoe chip person but my son loves lays. Neither of us have had any of these flavors. The Bacon Wrapped Jalepeno Popper flavor definitely intrigues me (but probably not him)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Some of their flavors are down right impressive! I could go for a bag right now.

  17. We always look forward to trying the new Lays flavors. So far we have sampled the West Coast Truffle Fries and thought they were okay. None of us noticed a funky taste though.

  18. I have boys so I know about the eating thing. These flavors of chips look so yummy.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh I don't know which one to try first. But I'm sure they are all wonderful and I could probably eat the whole bag

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yummmm these all look great. I want to try the queso the most, but all the flavors sound delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I would totally try the jalepeno popper ones! They are my ultimate weakness!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha, I didn't know Lays was having a promotion like this. I was aware that they had other, often bizarre sounding flavors overseas but I hadn't given any thought to the fact that we also had our own interesting variations. Anytime I go to the store the only one I see and get is the Limon flavor. I can (and have) finished a large bag in one sitting. The Chile Con Queso sounds pretty good though, I might have to try that one.

  23. I’m not really a big fan of chips so I can’t say a favourite! But a flavour that I like sour cream ! Thanks for the honest review!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Lays is really a delicious snacks but I've never know that it has a 3 new flavors and it looks really delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Those are some interesting flavors though I haven't tried them yet. Will try checking them out if I have the time.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Interesting combinations but I am game to try them. I am a big truffle fan but I can how it might not work here but will give it a shot anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  27. I haven't tried any of those. I like bacon, but I don't really like bacon flavored things. We have a deep dish Giordano's pizza bag here, that I would like to try, but I hate buying things that I may or may not eat. My bro-in-law, however is adventurous so maybe I'll try them if he buys a bag.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Nothing like a rainy day with a good book and Lays. I'll wait for it to slack up and head around the corner to try a new flavor.

    ReplyDelete
  29. These all sound very tasty. I would probably try the bacon wrapped jalopeño, I bit the spicy taste is great.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Those all sound great! We have fried green tomatoes here. They are my fave!

    ReplyDelete
  31. After trying two of these flavors, I have to say Lemon Lays are still my fave! I have a serious addiction !!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Lays has my favorite chip and cannot wait to check out these new flavors! I always love their salt and vinegar ones!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Interesting! I haven't tried any of the new flavors yet so it's good to know which ones are hit and which ones are miss. Apparently, only one tastes okay, I'd love to try that!

    ReplyDelete
  34. OMG, they all look amazing. I would love to give them a try. I'll have to search around and see which ones I can find.

    ReplyDelete
  35. As a food lover this sounds very interesting. I would like to try the quest chips because I love cheese & spice.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I love how lays is trying out all of these new flavors. I think I would do the bacon wrapped jalapeno cheddar poppers. This just sounds so amazing. The flavor sounds delicious.

    ReplyDelete
  37. For me, Lays is really good and has various flavors. Nice shots you have there by the way.

    ReplyDelete
  38. We might have a bag of the fried pickles with ranch at our house. I'll check with the child in charge of procuring crunchy things. Hopefully he'll still have some and I can give them a go!

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love Lays. This is by far the best chips I have ever had. I can actually finish the big pack all by myself.

    ReplyDelete
  40. New England Lobster Roll up here! I would have to skip the ones with Truffle. ICK!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I probably would really enjoy the chile con queso ones!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Talk about exciting flavors. These types of things can be a hit or miss so I appreciate you giving us the low down on how the flavors taste! Thanks for the review!
