Lay's Cappuccino Potato Chips Review

Lays cappucinno chips

AB from Maine has sent in a review of Lay’s Cappuccino potato chips. I also got to try these chips recently, and I couldn’t escape the cinnamon grease finish. Brutual. I do however love the Wasabi Ginger Chips.

From AB:

On a recent trip to Wal-Mart, I came across Lay’s Cappuccino potato chips. Being a lover coffee, I was excited to see this and picked up a bag for $2.99.

Upon arriving home, my wife and I opened the bag and dug in. The initial taste of the chips where good. You get a nice creamy taste that you expect from drinking a cappuccino.

However that taste soon morphed into what I can only describe as foul. Once the initial taste from the chip was gone, you are left with the sensation that you are chewing on old coffee grounds. Imagine brewing a pot of coffee, removing the filter with the grounds still in it, placing it in your mouth, and chewing. Yeah that is the taste.

This was a nice idea that really missed the mark. Not sure, who did the product testing for this, but they should be fired.

I've tried the Canadian versions except for the Cinnamon Roll. The Bacon Poutine did taste like roast chicken, the Jalapeno Mac n Cheese tasted like cheese (not spicy enough) - but I do like the Tzatziki.

Don't like seet flavoured chips because we had grape, orange and cherry favloured chips when I was a kod. Hated those too.

This isn't really coffee related, but in Canada, we got 4 different flavors of Lays...

- Bacon Poutine (sold out immediately everywhere)
- Creamy Tzatziki
- Jalapeno Mac n' Cheese
- Cinnamon Roll

Despite selling-out so quickly, once I finally tried the Bacon Poutine I was left disappointed as it tasted more like Lay's Roast Chicken chips sprinkled with a hint of mild bacon flavoring.

Cinnamon Roll was... weird. You get the initial cinnamon sugar hit up front and then taste the potatoes afterwards. Cinnamon-dusted 'taters anyone?

The Tzatziki wasn't too bad but tasted more like dill pickle.

The best of the much was Jalepeno Mac n' Cheese. You definitely got a hit of cheddar cheese up front & then the jalapeno heat on the back end. This is the one I ended up voting for out of the 4.

Tend to agree that Lay's product testers might have missed the mark on some flavors this side of the border as well. Kudos for creativity though... who the heck ever thought we'd see cappuccino and cinnamon roll chips?
