Hey, check out what I bought the other day! Not this specific bag, I stole this photo off the net because I threw out the empty bag I had before I realized I should snap a photo of it for my blog post. But I bought a bag pretty much identical to this, I swear!
So, I assume you all remember that I sort of reviewed the Maple Moose chips a while ago. Oh, you don't? Nobody reads my blog or cares about the chips I eat and that post was stupid anyway? Well, I guess that's fair. I accept that.
Anyway, in my Maple Moose post I mentioned that the chips were really sweet, and not really in a good way. I also may have mentioned that Maple Moose is a ridiculous idea for a flavour, but the salad flavoured chips seem like a really interesting idea and I wanted to try them! So I did! And....well.
First off, the image on the bag is much less hilarious than the Maple Moose one. I'm ashamed of you, Lay's. What, you couldn't think of a way to make salad look creepy-sexy? All you can come up with is a boring old bowl of salad? That's not fun blogging about at all.
Next, the taste! Like I said, I was excited to try these because dang, I haven't heard of salad flavoured chips before! That must be a really unusual, interesting flavour! Imagine my disappointment when I ate one and found it was....sour cream and onion. Really? You call that a limited flavour? I guess that's a good thing for anybody who ended up a fan of these chips, because it sucks to find something yummy only to have it vanish (bring back The Works chips! I only had one bag as a kid, and it haunts me!). But who hasn't already tried the sour cream and onion chips yet? You had a chance to make something really different with this flavour, and you just wasted it on an old boring recipe instead. Again, Lay's: shame. Don't advertise something as new when it so blatantly isn't, it's rude to lie to your customers.
