Gotta Get At This: Lay's Thailand Honey Butter and Popcorn Caramel
I LOVE Lay's Thailand, they are always doing some wacky stuff, but they make a perfectly cooked chip and authentic seasoning, so they are always pulling it off.
This year they've debuted a sweet collection, starting with "Honey Butter"... which, if you didn't know, is a flavor that SWEPT Korea last year. Literally, bags by Japanese snack maker Calbee of "Honey Butter" Chips were selling at up to $104 USD on ebay. The bags were so coveted in Korea that shopkeepers were bundling the chips with other snacks to cash in on the craze. Even McDonald's in Korea started selling "Honey Butter" French Fries! It's my understanding that they are still nearly impossible to find, but in the span of the craze, many imitators have come out with the "Honey Butter" flavor. Lay's Thailand has tapped into the mania and released their own version, albeit on a Ruffle cut chip. The sweet range also includes a regular cut chip "Popcorn Caramel" flavor that is only available at 7 eleven stores.
As with most Thai Lay's, they are pretty easy to find on ebay or Amazon, and I've already ordered these to try. So, if you don't wanna pack a bag and go to Thailand, order them from the convenience of your home. These are the kinds of fun new chip ideas I like to see, so I'm keen to try them!
