Lay's USA Classic BLT
These chips will freak you out with how much they actually taste like a full Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato sandwich. Not since tasting Pickles and Mustard on the Margarita Hamburguesa a la Brasa chips have I been sooo surprised that a chip was able to capture a flavor so genuinely. If you are used to Bacon flavored crisps, these are not exactly going to satisfy that craving... because the lettuce and tomato are such equal players in the flavoring. If this sandwich is something you crave but you just don't have the time or ingredients, this bag will for sure satisfy you.
As for the chip, you are still getting the quality of chips that Lay's USA is known for (which to me could be a LOT better), again, the lack of actual potato taste means the chip needs to be helped out with more seasoning... BUT in this case it works because you don't really want to taste too much potato flavor in this "sandwich", it comes across more as a blank starch (i.e. the bread).
Final thoughts... this flavor shows a TON of promise from Lay's and I hope they keep up the creativity and fresh ideas. If you like BLTs you HAVE to try these... and if you've never tried a BLT... try em, they are a fun bag of chips!
