If you’re a true potato chip fanatic, then you must have heard about (and participated in) Lay’s “World Flavourites” contest a few months back.
For those who need a refresher, the potato chip brand had Canadians vote for their favourite pre-picked flavours inspired by global influences.
There were three categories to choose from: Street Food, Home Cooked Classics, and Iconic Ingredients.
The votes have been tallied, and below are the three winning flavours with a description of what chip-lovers can expect:
- Lay’s Bacon Poutine: a delicious combination of gooey cheese curds, rich gravy, and smoky bacon flavours, inspired by Canada (who else?!).
- Lay’s Thai Sweet Chili: a tantalizing mix of sweet and spicy with aromatic and chili pepper flavours, inspired by Thailand.
- Lay’s Cheese & Onion: a blend of sharp cheddar cheese with savory onion, inspired by the UK.
Some of the other global flavours that didn’t make winning list include Chinese-inspired hot pot, Indian-inspired magic masala, as well as chicken & waffles.
The internationally flavoured chip launched yesterday (August 8), and will only be available for a limited time.
