Taste of States With John Egan – This Week – Lay’s Capuccino

John Egan is a comedian from Green Bay in Wisconsin and when he is not making audiences laugh their socks off he is trying all the new weird and wonderful food and snacks that America has to offer! We have teamed up with John to bring you on this magical and sometimes tasty food journey!

We are going to delve into the facts and origins of the food and then will have a One Take Review by John. So, ladies and gentlemen welcome to the world of TASTE OF STATES



It’s not every day that you associate coffee with crisp, but in America, Lays released a CAPUCCINO flavoured crisp as part of their Do Us A Flavor contest in 2014.

We have spoken about the contest on this article before but there are many  flavours that are part of this competition over the years it’s fun to look more in depth at ones that all race to win $1 million.

Now, let’s start off with the question on everyone’s lips – no there is no coffee in the actual crisp according to newspaper articles.

The crisp is described as having ‘earthy, bold espresso notes along with soft, creamy dairy and a hint of cinnamon’ flavour.

The crsio were up against an array of finalists including Chedder Bacon Mac and Cheese, wasabi ginger and Wavy Mango Salsa.

There are many reviews online about the crisp some saying they are bitter, others saying they have a lingering aftertaste. They sadly did not win the competition and was beaten to the gate by Wasabi Ginger.

But how do they actually taste?

Over to you John
