At long last! I finally try the third new Lay's flavor! The other two were fine (Chicken & Waffles | Cheesy Garlic Bread), but I have high hopes for these. Oh indeed. My friend Steven found these in a grocery store and was nice enough to snag these for me. Thank you, kind sir!
But what do they taste like?
Spicy! Hoo. At first I didn't think they were that spicy and was kinda disappointed, but now my throat is still burning. Delayed kick on the spice there. So... that's neat! These certainly get the kick of Srirach which is good, but I'm not sure if they quite got the flavor. Many things can cause mouth burn, but is it truly Sriracha flavored?
Wow, though - it certainly makes my mouth burn. Ow. Right - back on track. I think the flavor of Sriracha is more complex. Where these I taste mostly spicy and some hints of Sriracha-ness it's just not the same. It's not bad, but it's certainly spicier and more painful than I generally like my chips. If I eat a bunch I taste some of the vinegar, but the chili flavor appears to be missing. The chips are a more general 'spicy!', while the sauce has more of a chili flavor?
