Review (x3): New Lay’s Do Us a Flavor Potato Chips – Cappuccino, Mango Salsa, Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese

Junk Food Nation, if you’re anything like me, you’re sitting in a hotel room in Baltimore after you dropped the Junk Food Gal off to take the Maryland Bar.  Let me paint this picture again for you: your better half is taking the Bar Exam. You’re in a hotel room writing a blog about Cappuccino potato chips. Yes, this is real life.

Anyways, let’s get right to reviewing these chips. Unless you’re living under a rock, you’re aware that Lay’s is back with their Year 2 of their “Do Us a Flavor” contest. In this contest, consumers submitted flavor suggestions and Lay’s made them, letting the public vote on which flavor to keep. Last year, Cheesy Garlic Bread won out over Chicken and Waffles and Sriracha. (I voted for Sriracha. WAY TO BE BOLD WITH THE CHEESE GARLIC FLAVOR, AMERICA).

This year, Lay’s chose FOUR consumer-submitted flavors and also let the submitter choose the type of chip to put the flavor on.  The resulting flavors: Cappuccino regular potato chips, Mango Salsa Wavy Lays, Wasabi Ginger Kettle Cooked potato chips, and Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese regular potato chips. We discussed these on the Nosh Show recently – it seems obvious America will choose the Cheddar Bacon to win if the last contest was any indicator, doesn’t it?

Lays DUAF 2: The Money Shot

The damn Super Walmart near me didn’t have the only flavor I thought I’d really like – the Wasabi Ginger – so I was stuck with only three of the four flavors. NOT SO SUPER, ARE WE, WALMART? *Grumble*

Anyways, to save time, let me just give you my QUICK REVIEW (my immediate reactions): Cappuccino – WHOA nteresting, but “more interesting than tasty.” Mango Salsa – “oh dear god WHY??” No no no. Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese – predictable and boring; “I mean…I guess.” Yeah…safe to say I wasn’t super thrilled with any of these.

Ok, let’s get into the one everyone is talking about: Cappuccino Lay’s potato chips!

When I first opened up this bag of Cappuccino Lay’s potato chips, I pressed my nose to the opening and took a big whiff. WHOA was my instant reaction, because I was amazed at how much coffee smell these really had! I’ll give Lay’s credit – there is no mistaking these smell like coffee.  Sweet smelling for sure, almost like smelling a coffee ice cream.  Definitely some cinnamon-y notes.

Licking the chip, I got a coffee flavor, a little salt, some cinnamon, some sugary moments (brown sugar) and…oddly…some coconut flavor? Maybe that’s the butter. I dunno.  When I stuffed four chips into my mouth (to get the full flavor), the first note I got was actually BUTTER – These chips had a nice round buttery creamy taste to them.  Then the coffee notes came out – oddly, the flavor was sort of nutty on top of the potato chip flavor.  There was some sweet and savory.

My honest take is that these have hints of coffee, but mostly it’s a buttery salty and sweet potato chip. Besides the initial bit of coffee/cinnamon/sugar taste, these mostly taste like a nutty potato chip. Hazelnut? I’m not going to go that far.

Were these tasty? I mean, my mouth didn’t water for them, but they weren’t HORRIBLE. Definitely interesting…but more interesting than tasty. I think anyone who tries these won’t spit them out…but I’m not sure you’ll be reaching for another one. When you try these, however, do yourself a flavor – eat 4-5 chips at once to get the full effect…don’t shortchange yourself.

Ok, I’m going to admit something – I haven’t eaten a ton of Mango Salsa in my lifetime. I mean, I’ve HAD it before,and I liked it…but I didn’t love it enough that I eat it every day like this flavor submitter apparently does. Don’t get it twisted – I LOVE MANGO. But Mango salsa is NOT my go-to.

When I opened the bag of Mango Salsa Wavy Lays and smelled, I thought it smelled like rotten fruit. I’M SORRY. I DID.  I took a lot of whiffs and grimaced each time. Mango? I guess…definite fruit smell with a back after-odor. Like a foot.

I licked a Wavy Lay and my face twisted up. Immediate flavors were more of a pineapple, citrus-y flavor…that had gone bad.  Following that taste was an immediate rush of salt, garlic, pepper, and maybe a little cilantro? Hm. What the hell did I just taste? I racked my brain…is THIS what mango salsa tastes like?  …I think it does.  Maybe I DON’T like mango salsa.

Like the Cappuccino chips, I wanted to give these my full attention, so I stuffed three-four chips in my mouth at once, and chewed.  OH DEAR GOD.  I wanted to spit these out, but I persevered. The first flavor was a distinct citrus fruit flavor, sort of a combo of mango and pineapple flavors. As someone who hates artificial lime flavor, this had all my bells going off. As I chewed more, the initial citrus wore off, and a weaker tangy savory flavor took over.  The tang was probably due to the vinegar.  The more I chewed, the more the mush in my mouth became palatable…like a salsa with a hint of citrus.

I DID NOT LIKE THESE. Some key problems – the Wavy Lay was weird with this flavor, and oddly greasy. The pairing made no sense.  And even if you LIKE mango salsa, I think this flavor makes more sense on a corn chip. WHO THE HECK DIPS POTATO CHIPS IN SALSA??? Weirdos, that’s who.

No, Frito-Lay. This is the weakest link. Damn you for this one.

And finally: Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese Lays potato chips!

The most “boring” of the new flavors might be the most tasty. At least, I hope. It’s not hard to predict what these will taste like, though, don’t you agree? I mean, cheesy, smokey, bacon…I’m gonna guess that’s what these Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese Lays potato chips taste like.  With so much bacon in everything lately, I’m not sure this is groundbreaking. PS: I’M A SNOB.

Smelling the open bag, I definitely smelled cheddar cheese and smoky meatiness. The smell was unmistakable – it reminded me a lot of how Bacos smell, with an added element of cheese. It also reminded me a lot of how Cheddar and Bacon Tato Skins smell.

Licking the chips, these were plenty salty, and full of cheese and smoke flavor. I definitely got a lot of smoke from the powder – if someone told me this was just a smoked cheddar flavor, I’d believe it.

Popping five chips in my mouth at once, I chewed and my mouth filled with cheese and bacon flavor. It tasted exactly how I thought it would taste – not a bad thing. There was strong cheese flavor (mild, not sharp, cheddar) and lots of bacon taste. I got the bacon taste more when chewing – the oil from the chip accentuated the bacon fat flavor, so the meatiness came through more. Did I get a mac and cheese flavor? I mean, sort of – the potato chips chewed into a starchy mixture, like the macaroni noodles would be, so when swallowing this mixture I got the same sort of starchy/cheesy feeling in the back of my throat.

I will say these chips tasted good, but the whole thing was pretty one-note.  The reason I love Ruffles Cheddar and Sour Cream chips so much is because the onion plays off the cheese SO WELL.  Here, the bacon and cheddar blend easily…but that’s it. There’s a little bit of savoriness, but otherwise everything is in the salty cheesy smoky direction.  These will probably win the contest. I would’ve loved to see this flavor on a kettle chip – the extra crunchy chip mimicking the crunch of bacon?  Sigh, opportunity lost.

So there you have it! My review of three of the four flavors! Have you had these yet? And what do you think whether you’ve had them or not? Let me know in the comments below.

Soon, Wasabi Ginger…Soon. You will be mine.

    bahaha that is funny!

    • junkfoodguy says:

      @Ashley: IT DID! 😛

    • Um excuse me where can I buy these chips they look tastey and what’s the web site please tell me I WANT THESE CHIPS!!!!!!!!!! junkfoodguy where can I find these chips because me and my mom want too do a lays chips taste test please tell me and give me the website contact me on Facebook and tell me

  2. Kaitlyn says:

    not excited about any of these flavors! the only one that sounds like something i’d eat is the bacon cheese one, but it sounds so boring that i probably will never try it. i still haven’t tried the winner from last year (although it does sound good). kind of sad i never tried the chicken and waffles one when they had it out. did you review it? i’ll have to go into the archives.. haha 😉

    • junkfoodguy says:

      @Kaitlyn: I DID! The last year’s flavors ARE still out in limited places – I’ve seen them here in DC. You’ll have to try them if you can find them!

    • Ashley Barton says:

      I would like to try the cappuccino flavour. I’ve tried the wasabi and ginger and they are FANTASTIC!!!

  3. Elisa says:

    At one point, I saw Chicken & Waffles (can’t remember when or where) alongside last year’s winning flavor.

    I’m not a fan of driving in Baltimore. Miss your turn and you have to drive down a few blocks to find a street to turn around. Too many one-way streets for me! :p

    • Panda says:

      I have had the Chicken and Waffle ones and the Cheesy Garlic Bread ones. I have to say both are pretty good, but I have to say Chicken and Waffles were better. The sweetness almost syrup taste and the nice, savory, fried chicken flavor mixed together made the perfect combination.

    • junkfoodguy says:

      @Elisa: DEFINITELY too many one way streets. Plus, TONS of construction right now where BOTH sidewalks are blocked. WTF???

  4. Devin says:

    I’m not going to predict which one I think I’ll like the most, because last year I ended up being completely wrong (thought I would like Cheesy Garlic Bread the most, but Chicken and Waffle ended up being my favorite). I’m just going to go in with an open mind and give them all a shot.

    I just hope I can find the small bags again like I did last year. I hate getting huge amonuts of something new when I can end up not liking it.

  5. “You’re in a hotel room writing a blog about Cappuccino potato chips. Yes, this is real life.” Better than curled up in the fetal position in the hotel room closet trying to shut out memories of your own bar exam, amiright?

    Good review of the mango salsa chips, without trying them I know exactly the sort of taste you’re trying to get across. And I don’t want them.

    Ignoring parentheses, each bag contains exactly 3 ingredients. Potatoes, vegetable oil, and “Name-of-Flavor Seasoning.”

    I like how the bags seem to read: Submitted by Flavored Julia…Submitted by Flavored Matt…

    This comment DOES NOT CONTAIN CAFFEINE.

  6. Chris says:

    I was hoping you would have some better things to say about Mango Salsa because this was my favorite of the bunch. Admittedly, it is too sweet to catch on as a chip. Wasabi Ginger is a close 2nd to me and I don’t think you will be disappointed in them. I want Wasabi Ginger to win because it is a unique flavor that actually works as a chip. Cappuccino is just fun as heck, but who is going buy them after the contest? Nobody but myself and probably you.

    Like you said, America is going to vote for Cheddar Bacon Mac before they even give the other flavors a fair shot. The chip is good (not great) but there are too many alternatives that are similar already on the market.

    • junkfoodguy says:

      @Chris: Awh, haha. Well, I’m only one guy; if you liked the Mango Salsa one then own it! I fully acknowledge that my own taste buds are NOT the ultimate decider; I’ve been PLENTY in-the-minority on a bunch of snacks 🙂

      I ended up trying the Wasabi, and I LOVE THEM

  7. Trainor says:

    Dang; I was looking forward to these chips being amazing only to find them, at best, OK and at worst salsa and Fruit Loops. Oh well. :/ To me, Wasabi/Ginger didn’t taste like anything until it reached the back of my mouth, when a slight spice kicked in. But, as a good snack, you should try 479 Black Truffle Popcorn…you might enjoy it.

  8. MIke Connell says:

    A huge fan of last year’s Sriracha entry, I was hoping for something very bold in this year’s contest and they delivered with the Wasabi/Ginger! (It pleasantly surprised me as my submitted entry was Ginger Shrimp regular chip!). I am not happy these are kettle, but I’ll go with it. Have not opened the bag yet.

    Earlier this week, when I could not find the Wasabi/Ginger I was not thrilled with the other three and eenie-meenie-minee-moe selected Bacon Mac & Cheese. Like you I figured these would be predictable and they were of course. However, unlike you I found them MORE than bland, and to be honest did not taste ANY bacon and little cheese in them…just some bland flavor to me. I’ll never try them again I’d rather have plain or some of the other longtime Lay’s offerings.

  9. alan rodriguez says:

    lays has outdine themselfss.. shame their basil and tomatoe honey mustard was the end and wen will they learn that big bag equals a decent amont u know.. feel out the bags.jeeesh

  10. @homercles82 says:

    The Bacon Mac n Cheese are just Sour Cream and Cheddar with a hint of bacon. Awful chip to be honest.

  11. JaNet says:

    i tried the garlic bread last year and i don’t like cheesey flavored chips in the first place like cheddar sour cream so i knew i wouldnt like them. gross. of course the basics of america bought it…… the chicken and waffles was great though! sweet and savory. but i did notice both of the flavors had an after taste…. it was strange. kind of metal-y…. did anyone else get that?
    anyways if i had to choose id like to try the wasabi ginger and mango salsa ones this year!

  12. ibagoalie says:

    If I were in charge of marketing for Lays, I’d create a sampler pack, consisting of the small “grab bag” sizes. I bet they would sell tons of these, especially right before school starts.

    • junkfoodguy says:

      @Ibagoalie: Ah, but that would make too much sense 😉

    • Ontheroadagain says:

      A sampler pack of small snack size bags of the “new flavors, try them we hope you like them!” offerings from Lay’s each year is a GREAT idea! Send it to Lay’s, they just might listen for next year!

    • junkfoodguy says:

      @Ontheroadagain – lol, they won’t listen to a suggestion to shrink their profits 😉

  13. Sky says:

    I’m pretty sure I sent in the cappuccino one too lol

  14. Lesley says:

    I’ve tried all four of these flavors and the two I like are Ginger/Wasabi and Bacon Cheese & Mac. I didn’t dislike the Mango Salsa but it wasn’t one of my favorites. However, the Cappuccino was gross. My husband refused to try them after getting a whiff of them when I opened the bag and my daughter said they tasted like coffee flavored vomit. I guess there are people who like them but I sure didn’t.

  15. Shari says:

    I just opened a bag of the Mango Salsa ones.. They are horrible. No mango flavor whatsoever and a horrible after taste. after 3 chips, sorry to say they are going in the garbage.. i’d like to try the bacon mac n cheese ones but pathmark didn’t have them i will have to try another store. i wish they came in smaller sample bags so as not to waste money on such a big bag.

    • junkfoodguy says:

      @Shari: HAHA, I’m glad I’m not alone in thinking the Mango Salsa was awful. I think if the contest is anything like last year, smaller bags will start popping up closer to Sept/Oct

  16. Joey says:

    I really like the Wasabi Ginger and I was thrilled to see that they were kettle, I hope Meneko wins! I will not try the other 3 flavors, they simple do not interest me, especially Cappucino, who wants a coffee flavored chip?? #insanity

  17. Zee says:

    Why didn’t you review the Wasabi-Ginger Flavor???
    Please do and post on your blog.
    Thanks!

  18. Laura says:

    Thank you so much for posting pictures of the nutritional labels! A friend brought me a baggie of these to try yesterday and I have been looking EVERYWHERE online for the nutritional info for these and thanks to you, I finally found it!

  19. Michael Hill says:

    Call me old-fashioned but I don’t think a DIRECT KNOCK-OFF of something already out “Tato Skins/T.G.I. Friday’s Potato Skins” should win any contest where the object is to come up with something NEW? The “Bacon and Cheddar” is exact…just now on a thinner potato chip, Anyone else agree?

  20. Michael Hill says:

    Assblood69 = hater… U Mad Bro?

  21. Cassandra says:

    I tried the bacon cheddar bacon mac and cheese chips and on some chips. I tasted way too much bacon and some had way too much of bacon taste overall they were okay.

  22. mytwocents says:

    I must be in the minority. I tried the Mango Salsa and thought they were delicious. Exactly as desribed…fruity note with a salsa kick. I wasn’t even going to go near the Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese (disgusting) nor the Cappacino (really???). And although I love ginger, I’ll pass on Wasabi Ginger chips. Mango Salsa is the best of the bunch just from a concept standpoint.

  23. softchell says:

    I’ve tried three of the four flavors (Cappuccino seems so wrong). I loved the Wasabi Ginger and hope it wins. Mango Salsa didn’t taste rotten to me, just weirdly sweet. Maybe I had a bum bag of Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese because I didn’t taste any bacon at all. I tasted Cheddar (milder than the Cheddar & Sour Cream) and black pepper, but no bacon.

  24. Dave says:

    You joke about cinnamon chips, but I’ve just learned that one of the four finalists in Canada is Cinnamon Bun. I plan to try it this week (currently trying the Tzatziki flavor, which is decent but not as garlicky as I would like).

  25. Kathleen says:

    We picked up a bag of the mango salsa last night. I put one in my mouth and almost spit it out it was so disgusting. It tasted like if you were to eat a bunch of cilantro and sprinkle it with artificial flavor, add rotten fruit, and then vomit it back up. Just gross! I can’t imagine anyone liking them. I doubt I’ll try the others after that experience haha.

  26. Jared says:

    I’ve tried the mango salsa chips…couldn’t even finish one chip. However I gave it a try and continued eating some more hoping it’d get better…it did NOT. I was drinking beer when trying these chips and as the beer caused me to have to belch the flavor left over in my mouth from the beer and these chips was exactly the same as what gasoline smells like when on your hands. :-X

  27. Nobody says:

    You must try the wasabi ginger ones. They are awesome. And the kettle chip seems appropriate once you eat some. Haven’t you tried them ye!?
    And didn’t I see some “limon” ones somewhere or was I imagining that?!

    I tried the bacon mac and cheese ones – bo-ring, this cheese bacon thing has been done to death, “loaded potato skins” and etc. Anyway – those are just cheese and bacon, I’m not sure how mac and cheese has anything to do with it, they are subbing potato for the pasta right?

    Last year I prefered the sriracha. I thought the garlic and cheese ones were alright if you don’t mind the bad breath, and the chicken and waffles kind of meh, a little weird/lacking. Maple/bacon combo seems big these days on cupcakes and stuff, maybe that would have worked.

  28. Rederister says:

    My friend spat out the mango salsa ones at lunch yesterday, but when i tried them I actually quite liked them. I might pick up a bag if I get the chance, but I’m sure I’d like the macaroni better

  29. Sparky says:

    Nobody, the Limon ones are great! They disappear at our parties here. They’re strong though!

    So…we just bought a house in Sacramento, and apparently the lady who submitted the Mango Salsa flavor lives nearby. There’s a series of professionally-printed signs along the road near a prominent intersection begging you to vote for the flavor online to “support our hometown girl”. They want you to vote every day, on various social media platforms. I assume the winner gets a cash prize? What annoys me is, all these “contestants” did was SUGGEST a flavor, not create a recipe or do any actual work, so why should people vote for a stranger every day so they can get some money? I’m supposed to feel loyalty because we both live in the same HUGE state capitol?

    Besides, its mango salsa. Gross. 😛 (But also seriously, I think the begging is tacky.)

  30. Ciel says:

    I don’t know why anyone could hate the flavor of mango chips but they actually became my most favorite tasting chip I’ve ever had in my life, so if it doesn’t win I guess I’ll be missing my favorite chip for the rest of my life too. Feels odd saying that though considering how much I enjoy eating them.

  31. KaylaCakes says:

    Bacon Mac ‘N Cheese= really poor Sour Cream and Onion chips. An epic failure for sure. Come on Lays.. you can do better than this (-_-)

  32. Twisted4000 says:

    I’ve tried all four. I voted for the Cappuccino flavor. If I had to pick my favorite flavor of them however, it would probably be the Bacon Mac and Cheese (yeah, surprise surprise), but I just don’t think it’s unique enough to save–there’s plenty of cheesy/smoky potato chips out there, I’d like to have something unique on the shelves next time I go to the grocery store.

    That being said, though, I actually found the cappuccino chips to be pretty delicious. Very buttery and sweet, sure, unexpected, perhaps a bit uncalled for, but still. I happen to really like them.

    The Wasabi and Ginger flavor is very good in my mind, you get a very big splash of oriental flavors with them. I taste soy sauce and ginger initially, with an aftertaste of wasabi. Not very spicy though.

    The Mango Salsa ones I am on-and-off with, when I first tried them I was disgusted, I mean you get this initial burst of mango, which is nice, but then there’s not much to the whole “salsa” aspect of it. Then it just leaves you with this sort of gross mango-and-potato chip flavor. But when I tried them again later, I thought they were a little better. Still though… I’d be pretty disappointed if they won.

    Quite honestly, though, if any of the other three became the victors, I’d be fine with it. I liked them all for their own reasons. However… I think we can all probably predict that the Bacon Mac and Cheese ones are going to win…

    • Chipfantic says:

      I am in love with the mango salsa. I want it win but it is hated so much that it will never win :((. The bacon mac and cheese is good but they are cheese chips with bacon, Not worth saving. Cappicino is kind of good. But I don’t recommend. And I hate Wasabi, Ginger, And Keddle cooked. So I am not gonna even try them. I know its gonna be a waste of money for me

  33. Scott says:

    Trying the Wasabi right now – it’s pretty awesome.

    Also tried the others. Eh. They aren’t bad at all, but they are not something I really want beyond trying.

    But the Wasabi, I would buy this one regularly. I could eat it all the time.

  34. Nataliann says:

    I agree totally on the Mango Salsa flavor YUCK! The Wasabi Ginger in our house wins hands down. Bacon Mac N Cheese ones taste like sour cream cheddar, nothing special, not even trying the Cappucino ones, no thanks! But I think I’m going to crush the Mango ones and make a breading for fish then make fish tacos???? Will let you know if they were ok for that usage, otherwise it’s garbage for them!!!!

  35. Dave Edwards says:

    I just got snack bags of all except for the wasabi (I know I won’t like it). The coffee surprisingly smelled like coffee and had a slight coffee taste. However I got a mixture of coffee and Las original I the taste. It was as you say interesting but not great. It did taste better the more I ate. However my girlfriend ate one and hated it. I told her to try it again because I liked it better the second chip than the first. She said nearly puked.

    The bacon mac was unoriginal. Tasted slightly like a plain cheddar with a very very mild smoke flavor. Not ba at all but not something I’d run after. I’m sure this flavor will win (even before I tired any I knew it would).

    The mango salsa smelled slightly fruity but not to much. Still defo fruity. Slight salsa smell. When I initially started chewing the first chip it tasted like some dried fruit (can’t pinpoint which. Maybe mango? I don’t since I dont really eat mango). This flavor was very foreign to me, at least in a chip. I didn’t know if it was pleasant or off-putting but when I was about to swallow and when I actually did swallow I got a rich, but nit overpowering salsa flavor. And I freaking love salsa. I tried another

  36. Dave Edwards says:

    I tried another bite of the chip and this time the fruit didn’t hit me so hard (I suspect because my taste buds were used to it) and I eagerly awaited the salsa flavor that bursted into my mouth. Before I knew it half the bag was gone. So as you can tell I loved these. It is possibly the greatest chip I have ever tasted. The fact that it was the wavy lays was even better.

    It saddens me that this flavor won’t win and soon will be gone into oblivion 🙁

  37. Hate Cappuccino Chips says:

    30 people tried the Cappuccino chips and only one liked them. They were absolutely HORRIBLE!!!!!!! They had a terrible after taste too! Not even the dogs like them!!!!!!! We ended up throwing the entire bag away! They were that horrible! I can’t stand the Cappuccino chips!!!!!!! I have nothing good to say about them. #dontbuythesechips #cappuccinochipsareterrible #dogsevenhatethem #dontwasteyourtimeandmoney
