Potato Chip Review – Lay’s Wisconsin Cheddar

Two words sum up these chip: not impressed. At first they smelled like Nacho Cheese Bugles, then I tried them and they were boring and nothing like Bugles. They basically taste like every other cheese flavored chip from Lay’s. I wouldn’t be surprised if those lazy bastards at Lay’s didn’t just repackage their cheddar & sour cream flavor with a new label, to get you to buy more of a flavor they already make. I know that I fell for the trick. So if I had two more hands, I’d give it four thumbs down.

    Man, I haven’t been out to Bullock’s since the whole Nook/BMW pick-up trip.

    I’ve heard of chips with Old Bay seasoning and crab flavored chips, but I’ve never seen them either in person.

    I’ve seen a couple of those chip of the month clubs, and I haven’t really been too impressed. The system so far, is that when my sister goes on one of her many trips, she’ll bring me back a small bag of chips from the area. The most interesting so far, were a bag of salted taro root chips from hawaii. The dutchman’s store usually has a good selection of different chips, I once got a bag of chips cooked in lard that were pretty good. One problem that I’ve noticed with some of the small producers, is there limited distribution area. So if you are out of the distribution range, its like the chips don’t even exist. Kind of like only being able to find HLI in Bay City.

  • essentially orange salt that clumps on your fingers as you eat it. I’d be interested if you did an artisan chip taste test after this, so you could give a perspective on how smaller producers are doing and could contrast it with similar styles from the “super producers”. I’d say you should join one of the Chip of the Moth clubs, but they seem a silly expense. probably just scrounge when you travel or order direct from small producers…

    Very much like Natty light-Busch Light theory. I’ve also got some Au Gratin Lay’s. And I’ve got a sneaking suspicion that they will have a very similar taste as well. I guess I’ll find out when I try them in a couple of days.

  • just like the Busch Light- Natural Light conspiracy, different beers, or just different cans?
