Diana Chan August 12, 2015 British Columbia, product


Every year Lays Canada does their annual Do Us a Flavour contests where fans can submit their unique flavour inspired by their favourite foods and the different Canadian regions.

After receiving almost 950,000 flavour submissions, Lay’s Canada has revealed the four finalist for this year’s Do Us a Flavour Tastes of Canada contest:

  • Cowboy BBQ Beans on Lay’s Wavy, inspired by Western Canada
    Brenda Boghean from Calgary, AB
  • Butter Chicken on Lay’s Original, inspired by Ontario
    Darryl Francispillai from Mississauga, ON
  • Montreal Smoked Meat on Lay’s Original, inspired by Quebec
    Zdravko Gunjevic from Waterloo, ON
  • PEI Scalloped Potatoes on Lay’s Original, inspired by Atlantic Canada
    Jordan Cairns from Burlington, ON

Do you remember last years finalists – Bacon Poutine, Cinnamon Bun, Jalapeño Mac N’ Cheese and Tzatziki?

Or the year before that – Creamy Garlic Caesar, Grilled Cheese & Ketchup, Maple Moose, and Perogy Platter

Even Lay’s in America has had a few odd choices – Chicken and Waffles, Sriracha and Cheesy Garlic Bread.

Lots of weird flavour combination have been seen in the past few years. I’m hooked every year to try them all and do a review.


Cowboy BBQ Beans uses the Lay’s Wavy chips. It remind me of BBQ chips. I couldn’t pin point any other familar flavours to these chips.


Butter Chicken flavour was pretty spot on. The spices were pretty good and fragrant. It wasn’t too strong, but do able.


Montreal Smoked Meat definitely had a unique taste to it, if you didn’t know it was smoked Montreal meat, you will be wondering what flavour this is. You can taste the smoked taste and a sour after taste.


PEI Scalloped Potatoes have a distinct cheese, chive and butter taste. I ate a good amount of scallop potatoes, so I could really pin point those flavours.


Which flavour will I choose? I would have to give it to the PEI Scalloped Potatoes. The flavour was most accurate and I’m sure you could make scalloped potatoes with those potato chips. That would be quite funny to make. Butter Chicken was a close second. It will be interesting which flavour will win this year.
