I am truly amazed at the variety of Lay's Potato Chips in this country. I've made it my mission to try all the odd flavored Lays I've been avoiding for years now. I will be reporting in back to you.
This all began with my discovery of Blueberry Lays a couple weeks ago. Today I stumbled upon Mango, a true gold mine. If you want to try any of these delectable flavors yourself, you're going to have to come for a visit.
Blueberry I opened the bag and smelt blueberry deliciousness. The chips weren't blue or purple as I expected, however; just their normal golden potato color. The flavor was strange, but manageable. I have to admit that I'm pretty open minded to tasting new flavors-it's become a means to survive here. To describe the blueberry chip, well, it tasted blueberry, much like blueberry flavored gum or candy. It also tasty distinctly potato chipy, like a crunchy, salty potato chip. The combination of these two separately delicious flavors was ok. But salt and blueberry don't mix together all that well. I don't really care much for salt with my fruits. I do like that there is no aftertaste. I give it three stars (out of five). I'd rather stick to "American Flavor Lays" (plain, salted).
Mango Has an unidentifiable fruity smell and tastes a bit like a salty peach. Also, no aftertaste. I prefer the blueberry. Two stars.
Cucumber All this potato chip tasting has made me realize I need to start hitting the gym again. But for Cucumber flavored Lays, the calories are worth it. Delicious. Other than Original American Salt Flavor, these are my favorite. A little salty, a little vegetably, and no aftertaste. Four and a half stars.
Lychee What is a lychee? you might ask. It is a Chinese fruit that tastes how a grandmother's house smells. That is, it tastes like stale potpourri and death. Not one of my favorite fruits. And it's no better as a potato chip flavor. It sucks. One star.
