Lay's USA Chinese Szechuan Chicken

Here's another bag from Lay's USA's Passport to Flavor Collection; "Chinese Szechuan Chicken".
The quickie review is this bag smells like Chinese food, you get a strong whiff of Soy Sauce and can taste it too. The chips are good quality. The spice builds up. It's a pretty solid reproduction of Szechuan Chicken.

Now, for my opinion. This should have been a Szechuan BEEF flavor. The Chicken seasoning is too mild to compete with the spicy Szechuan flavor so it get's lost. You get Szechuan peppers, no Chicken. I am much more familiar with Szechuan Beef, and I think the heavier Beef seasoning would have gone better with the strong Chinese spice. Also with the Soy Sauce.

Is this a fun alternative to ordering take-out? Yes. Will it satisfy a 3am Chinese food craving? Yes. Is it the best Chinese flavored Chip ever? NAW. Is it the best of the 4 new flavors? Nope!

But, What did you guys think? Did you love it? Am I just straight up wrong? Comment below!

Lay's Romania Strong

Lay's Romania has some relatively new chips happening... the Lay's Strong collection. I would compare these to the Walker's MAX line in the UK, they are Ruffles chips with Stronger, Bolder seasonings.
The 3 flavors that have been released at launch are "Piri Piri" Pepper, "Hot Paprika", and "Wasabi". So if you love yourself some spice, make a pit stop in Romania and grab a bag!

Lay's USA Wavy Greek Tzatziki

Here is #1/4 from Lay's current Passport to Flavor promotion; "Wavy Greek Tzatziki".

Quick Review: These are HELLA GOOD! The wavy cut chip adds a ton of potato flavor and the seasoning tastes like you've dipped a chip in a bowl or refreshing, bright, garlic-y, minty, Tzatziki. If you are a fan of the traditional Mediterranean dip, you will enjoy this flavor.

Long Review: See my post from this flavor when it was a Costco Exclusive.
