Lays Canada: Do Us a Flavour 2016 Review

Diana Chan September 2, 2016 British Columbia, product


Canadians have voted and the results are in for 2016. The 2016 Lay’s Do Us A Flavour World Favourites are:

  • Bacon Poutine
  • Cheese & Onion
  • Thai Sweet Chili

The flavours were inspired by Canada, United Kingdom and Thailand. Every time Lays comes out with new special flavours, I just have to give them a try. I always share with my coworkers too so I can see the reaction on their faces.

Bacon Poutine – Canada


This flavour is inspired by the classic French‑Canadian dish. It combines cheese curds, rich gravy and smoky bacon flavours. It was a clear consensus that this flavour was pretty bad. The artificial smokey flavour really turned us off from these chips. It reminded me more of an odd BBQ taste.

Cheese & Onion – United Kingdom


This flavour was inspired by the timeless ingredients used in British cooking. It combines the flavours of sharp cheddar cheese with savoury onion.

This reminded me of funky sour cream and onion chips. I didn’t particularly take a liking to this. Reactions with my coworkers were mixed with this one.

Thai Sweet Chili – Thailand


This flavour was inspired by the iconic dipping sauce from Thailand. The chip has a mix of sweet and spicy with aromatic garlic and chili pepper flavours.

Thai Sweet Chili was a clear winner with the few people I tried these with.


You can find these 3 flavours in stores now for a limited time.
