New flavours a hit for Lay’s

<p></p>




Lay’s Chili Garlic

**** (out of 5)

Price: $3.49

Try/buy again: Yes





Applause to the folks at Lay’s for creating unique potato chip flavours that rival those found in Britain (shrimp chip, anyone?). The first bite of this crispy snack mimics the taste of garlic bread, with garlic dominating the tastebuds over chili heat. It’s a nearly perfect blend of flavour and potato chip. Upon opening the bag, snackers will think they walked into a nice spice store. The chips are tangy with a hint of aftertaste, but it’s nothing a mint wouldn’t fix.

*****

The taste experience of these chips is like a great song: It starts off with a gentle melody, builds, and ends with a bang. Here, the start is chips that smell and taste like curry. The first nibble grabs the snacker’s attention with its mixed-spices flavour underscored by a taste that says “cream,” and it ends with a pop of heat that tingles on the tongue long after the last crunch. Quite possibly the best potato chip ever.

Doritos Tandoori Sizzler

** 1/2

Price: $1.29 for 85g; $2.99 for 280g

Try/buy again: No


This is the snack food that tries too hard to impress, coming on bold and strong from the first taste, and ends up feeling like an assault on the tastebuds. Too much seasoning cover the chips, which may leave snackers coughing and fingers in need of a tissue, but the crunch is right and there’s a nice kick of flavour that’s either lime or coriander. Salty aftertaste, though. Snackers who yearn for something with a bit of heat would be better off picking up the spicy Doritos.
