Earlier in 2015, Lay’s America asked fans to submit regionally-inspired flavours. They got some wacky flavour submissions, but there are only 4 finalists:
- West Coast Truffle Fries
- Southern Biscuits and Gravy
- New York Reuben
- Greektown Gyro
They need your vote to win the $1 million grand prize.
Since I’m Canadian, I was intrigued by these flavours since we don’t have them in Canada. We have a separate contest. You can check out the Canadian versions here.
Angie Fu is the creator of the West Coast Truffle Fries Flavour and was inspired by seeing Truffle Fries on restaurant’s menus. Apparently, it is the first thing that she orders as the aromatic flavour of truffle is mouth-watering.
The West Coast Truffle Fries are on Lay’s Wavy chips, so its thicker and has more of a crunch to them compared to their original type of chips.
At first taste, we really couldn’t get the truffle oil essence from the chips. The taste was more like a baked potato with sour cream. Not very impressed.
