Lay’s Classic BLT (bacon lettuce tomato) flavored potato chips, flavor review

Tomorrow I have a final exam. My typical way to prepare for a big exam is to load up on junk food.  Not smart, but emotionally soothing. Currently my snack of choice is Lay's classic BLT flavored potato chips (all natural).  I'm on my second bag and have mixed feelings about finishing the second bag;  sad because they are gone but happy that I will finally stop eating. Lay's BLT (bacon lettuce tomato) potato chips are amazing and I am in awe. These chips taste exactly like biting into a bacon lettuce tomato sandwich. I can distinctly taste a lightly toasted bread, mayonnaise, fresh tomato and fried bacon flavor. The bacon flavor is distinctly bacon; not just smoke flavor. The BLT flavor is subtle and perfectly balanced for a those of us … [Read more...]

Doritos Limited Edition: Salsa Rio & Sour Cream Onion flavor review

It's Superbowl Sunday and I am a huge fan of the snacks and the food us Americans enjoy today.  There are special displays in grocery stores set up for people buying food for the Big Game. Usually they are built out of beer and soda with lots of snacks intertwined. I managed to walk by the Oreo shaped footballs, but couldn't resist trying the new Doritos flavors. Doritos are always "delicious".  I think it's the perfect blend of salt, cheese, MSG, disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate that this brand of chips has. Used in very small amounts, flavor enhancers (MSG, disodium insinuate and disodium guanylate) give a delicious full-bodied flavor to products. My entire family enjoyed the sour cream & onion chips. Surprisingly so, … [Read more...]

Lay’s Garden Tomato & Basil Flavored Potato Chips Review

Pizza Lovers Lay's could have called these potato chips pizza flavored, but instead they called them garden tomato and basil flavored. It must have been the marketing department, not the flavor scientist, that chose garden tomato and basil.  The flavor is distinctly pizza. By pizza I mean this chip has a sweet malty/bread note like a pizza crust, a cooked tomato character like pizza sauce, an Italian Seasoning note (more oregano like than basil),and a cheese note. The package of Lay's garden tomato and basil advertised the link to the soup recipe that inspired Garden Tomato Basil flavored chips:  http://www.fritolay.com/recipes/recipe/garden-tomato-and-basil-soup Comparing the recipes for tomato soup and pizza sauce; there exist … [Read more...]

Tim’s Vlasic Dill Pickle Flavored Potato Chips review

Tim's Cascade Style Potato Chips I don't love dill pickles, nor am I pregnant with strange cravings;  but I do love Tim's Cascade Style Potato chips. Tim's chips are extra thick and crunchy and always delicious. My favorite chips from Tim's are the reduced fat, because they taste like regular potato chips. Tim's is well-known for their flavored chips, especially the Hot Jalapeno Seasoned chips.  The jalapeno chips ranked # 1 snack food on Taquitos.net  ( http://www.taquitos.net/snacks.php?snack_code=415) Dill Pickle Flavor I can't recall seeing a dill pickle flavored chip before, but when I googled it, 31 items came up.  This is the first time I have tried a dill pickle flavored product and I like it. The aroma of the open bag is … [Read more...]
