Has Anyone Tried the New Flavor Lays Potato Chips?

They're Chicken and Waffles, Sriracha, and Cheesy Garlic Bread.

The Sriracha one sounds like it's probably good, but I haven't seen them in any markets and I'm in L.A.!

And yeah before anyone asks, I'm addicted to chips and I'm fat.

I've looked in several stores and haven't found any of them. They have a product locator function on their website, but it foolishly doesn't include any of these new flavors. Epic fail.

Chicken and waffles?

by Anonymousreply 303/11/2013

What is Sriracha? I remember when they were doing the commercial for possible new flavors, some of the ones offered up sounded good...like Thanksgiving dinner. The ones they released sound not so good. I imagine chicken and waffles is just another bbq thing and cheesy bread is just another sour cream and cheddar.

I've tried the Chicken and Waffles flavor. It's pretty awesome. I used to live in South America, and it reminds me of the chicken-flavored potato chips that are ubiquitous in the continent, only with a sweeter aftertaste.

Chicken and Waffles (as a dish) sounds so strange to me. Do you put syrup or anything on the waffles? The chicken is fried, right? Do people typically eat it at breakfast?

Is there a reason why, say, Chicken and Pancakes didn't take off? Why waffles???

It's only the three new flavors that are part of the contest. Since it's a national contest (with TV ads featuring Eva Longoria and Michael Symon) it shouldn't just be in test markets.

I've heard that the Chicken and Waffles flavor has a sweet maple taste; presumably that's to replicate the syrup.

They sell all three in snack sized bags at Walgreens in STL.

I've tried the Chicken and Waffles and Cheesy Garlic Bread. The cheesy garlic bread tasted like garlic to me. I didn't get any cheese flavor. The Chicken and Waffles was interesting. Chicken flavor followed by a maple syrup flavor. I wouldn't buy a bag of any of these. They were interesting to try but not something that will be big like Sour Cream and Onion or BBQ.

My local Kroger in Atlanta having a hand out of sample bags on Friday.

I lived in England for two years and I loved chicken flavored potato chips (crisps)

by Anonymousreply 3303/11/2013

R33 - Which Kroger? "Kosher Kroger" on LaVista or "Murder Kroger" on Ponce? Because I remember them handing out samples.

I tasted the Chicken-and-Waffles flavor a few weeks ago and immediately regretted it. The "maple" flavor was very chemical in taste as if the processors couldn't quite replicate the flavor of real maple syrup, but didn't throw in the towel either. Very little chicken flavor to them.

My next cheat day isn't scheduled until the weekend, and I want to try the sriracha sauce flavor.

As for actual chicken-and-waffles, all I can say is, don't knock it until you try it. If you're not used to rich, fattening foods, you probably won't like it. The chicken is usually deep-fried, and you can sop up the syrup from the waffles either with the chicken or biscuit. I don't eat it that often, but its great really late at night after leaving the club, but you don't want to go home quite yet.

The Pennsylvania Dutch Version consists of stewed chicken and gravy on top of a waffle.

[quote]Chicken and Waffles sounds strange. I've never known anyone who eats real chicken with real waffles. Maybe that's something new at Denny's or KFC.

Your ignorance notwithstanding, it's a very common and popular dish throughout the south. Goggle "Rosco's Chicken and Waffles". It's been around along time.

[quote]Chicken and Waffles (as a dish) sounds so strange to me. Do you put syrup or anything on the waffles? The chicken is fried, right? Do people typically eat it at breakfast?

The syrup is actually what holds and blends the two flavors together. The fried chicken seasonings (savory) and the maple-syrup (sweet) with the waffle typically being the 'bread' of the meal. And no, it's not typically eaten for breakfast although it certainly can be.

As for why a waffle and not a pancake... the waffles stand up to the syrup better than a pancake, which would likely just fall apart or get soggy.

[quote] Remember Nabisco's "Chicken In A Biscuit" crackers? I

I do. They were weird tasting. I ate them at my aunt's house once.

My mother would drop us at my aunt's house in summer when she went to work in a restaurant. She'd pick us up around 5 pm. My aunt had 8 kids and my sister and I made 10. Too many kids to feed, so we didn't get lunch. My cousins would disappear to their friends' houses just as the noon whistle started blowing so they could get an invite to lunch.

One day we were so hungry we looked in the cabinet and found some chicken in a biscuit crackers and started eating them. One of my cousins found us and told us we were going to hell. It was a Friday during lent and we'd eaten meat! Chicken in a biscuit! My sister and I started to cry. One of the ingredients was something like chicken bullion, so we'd committed a mortal sin.

Pringles has a pizza-flavored crisp that tastes exactly like pizza. Unnerving. They also had a limited run of pumpkin spice flavor and peppermint flavor crisps during the holidays which I didn't try.

I don't understand sweet-flavored chips but maybe that's because I'm not used to them. To me, lime-flavored Tostitos are gross.

But at one point I thought Diet Coke with Lime would be gross but it turned out to be quite nice. So you never know.

I was at my aunt's and found a box and ended up taking them home with me and then buying more the next day. They are the triangle shaped triscuits (maybe lights) and not as fattening as chips so you don't feel so bad.
