Lay's Launches Two New Flavours For Western Canada!
Lay's is happy to announce the launch of two new potato chip flavours exclusively to western Canada including BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. The new flavours are Smoky BBQ and Old Fashioned Ketchup and both are the wavy style potato chips. PepsiCo Foods supports the western market through partnerships with professional sports teams and new products choices so these two flavours were created with the Western tastebud in mind.
Smoky BBQ is spicier and smokier with added heat for those looking for a stronger bite and Old Fashioned Ketchup is a sweeter, more tomato taste sure to please those who love the classic Ketchup flavour. Lay's takes pride in providing Canadians with potato chips with homegrown potatoes provided by Canadian Lay's potato farmers.
I was generously provided with both flavours to try. It was perfect timing with the long weekend and company coming to visit. My family loves potato chips and I happen to love the wavy chips over the thinner ones that tend to break more easily. I don't know how true it is but to me the wavy chips tend to be more flavourful. We enjoyed both flavours! I don't like chips that are too spicy but I found the Smoky BBQ to have just the right amount of heat without being too overpowering and the flavour was smoky delicious. Ketchup is one of my favourite chip flavours and these ones didn't fail to please me. They were a good balance between sweet and tomato. Sometimes I find with a bag of chips is some chips will have no flavour on them and others too much but these ones were pretty evenly coated which was nice.
These new flavours are available at all major retailers in Western Canada (BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba) for suggested retail of $3.49 for 270g bag.
Chips were generously provided to me for review purposes only and all opinions on the blog are my own.
