The streets are talking and their words have been heard loud and clear at The Clem Report HQ. The people
WANT NEEEEED reviews of the four finalists in the Lay’s “Do Us A Flavor” contest.
The four flavors of chips that will be reviewed are Mango Salsa, Cappuccino, Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese and Wasabi Ginger. Since these flavors are very unique, I will be judging them on how appetizing they are, NOT how much they taste like the flavor they were named after. Onto the reviews.
Yuck. After this first review, I am that thinking I may be in over my head. Two very offsetting flavors make this a weird combination. The mango flavor overpowers you in the beginning and the salsa flavor comes on at the end like a bat out of hell. I definitely ranked this too high in the video. Putting the mango salsa on a Wavy Lay’s chip was clearly done to trick a simpleminded fellow like myself.
Rating: 5.9/10 in the video. I am changing my score to 4.5/10 after tossing and turning all night thinking it over.
Out of all the chips, this flavor was the one I was expecting to like the least. I hate to admit my prejudice, but I am just a mere human being put on this earth to review random foods. But being the professional I am, I power on.
There is a subtle cappuccino taste that leaves you wanting more with each bite. Lay’s has made a legit dessert potato chip option that is good. I am just as surprised as you are.
Rating: 8.3/10. The potato chip equivalent to kettle corn. You can definitely binge on these if you aren’t careful.
Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese
I’ll keep this one simple. This can and should be a flavor in the Lay’s potato chip line. It should also be a Ben and Jerry’s ice cream flavor. That good.
Rating: 8.7/10. ‘Merica.
Meh, nothing great. It was completely unfair to put this flavor on a kettle cooked chip, which is the best potato chip in this great country of ours. It does taste like wasabi and ginger with some serious spice at the end. But not a great flavor for a potato chip. This chip has no honor.
Rating: 6.7/10. R.I.P. Yokozuna.
All Four Flavors At Once
#YOLO. #YODO. Don’t live or die while eating these four flavors at once.
Rating: 3.5/10. You know when you mix all the paint colors together and you get that weird brown color? That’s what these four chips taste like when they are eaten at one time.Follow @TheClemReport
