Snack #126- Lay’s Sweet & Spicy Buffalo Wing Flavored Potato Chips

Lay’s Sweet & Spicy Buffalo Wing Flavored Potato Chips

These chips are definitely sweet and spicy but the sweet flavor is super sweet and tastes like a mouthful of sugar (perhaps brown sugar). They are pretty standard potato chips, very thin and crunchy but with more seasoning than typical chips- almost more like Doritos or Cheetos because they leave orange residue on your hands. It is actually difficult to taste the potato chip underneath all the seasoning. The ingredient list reads like a recipe for buffalo wings, all the way down to the added ‘chicken fat’. Gross. They do taste like a buffalo wing but the flavor is unnatural packed onto a potato chip. And they are not spicy enough.

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 1/10

Bottom Line: Chicken fat potato chips.

Love this chip to point of addiction. My office building's newstand WAS the only place I could find it, but now they claim that Lays has discontinued selling this variety. SAY IT AIN'T SO! Where can I find this for sale in NYC/Long Island?
