On the weekend Taylor and I tried the new flavour’s of Lay’s potato chips- this is the Canadian version of the contest. Here the finalist flavours are Grilled Cheese & Ketchup, Creamy Garlic Caesar, Perogy Platter and Maple Moose.
Grilled Cheese & Ketchup
Tanie: I can smell the cheese and ketchup.
Taylor:The ketchup is overpowering.
Tanie: It’s kind of… spicy?
Taylor: This has a weird aftertaste, and it lingers. I don’t think they know what grilled cheese tastes like.
Creamy Garlic Caesar
Taylor: It doesn’t have much of a smell.
Tanie: It’s mild. It does kind of smell like croutons.
Taylor: It’s like someone faxed you the smell of caesar salad.
Tanie: Whoa! This tastes way more than it smells. That’s pretty garlicky.
Taylor: I’ve got garlic, and then parmesan cheese and the aftertaste has the sharpness of a dark-leafed lettuce.
Tanie: This tastes the most like the thing it is supposed to be.
Taylor: It’s very full-bodied.
(for some reason there is no record of our opinions on the smell, maybe because it was so boring)
Taylor: Not really perogy-ish until the end, a perogy aftertatse.
Tanie: Mostly onion with a perogy finish.
Taylor: That smells weird.
Tanie: Oh, I can smell it from here. It smells like used fireworks. It doesn’t taste mapley at all. It’s like… smokey at first and then sweet at the end.
Taylor: It kind of tastes like wasabi.
Tanie: It’s like someone lit a maple tree on fire.
Taylor and I both picked Creamy Garlic Caesar as the Best and Grilled Cheese & Ketchup as the Worst. Maple Moose got an Honourable Mention for being so weird, and Perogy Platter was named Most Meh.
The next day Sym did a blind taste-test.
1. It smells kind of ketchup-y? The taste is so-so, in the middle. (This was Grilled Cheese & Ketchup)
2. This one smells maple-y, it tastes better than it smells. (Maple Moose, although she was the only person who got a maple smell from this chip)
3. It smells like a salad, or salad dressing. [she gave a thumbs up here] Good! (Creamy Garlic Caesar, like Taylor and myself she liked this one the best)
4. Ketchup-y smell. [I ask her how it tastes] NOPE. (Perogy Platter, this was her pick for worst)

I’m sad the perogy platter wasn’t better.
yeah we both thought that one would be the best but it was so boring!
Ceaser salad chips? lollll so weird but I want to try it.
I heard they’re pretty similar to the garlic bread ones that won the contest in the US
