Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
LAYS CHICKEN & WAFFLES
Everyone loves crisp, especially when there are lots of different flavours to enjoy. Well, in America, they really are the royalty of creating new flavours and today we are looking at a flavour that reflects on of their most popular meals that you can get most places – Chicken and Waffles.
In 2013, Lays announced that they were going to debut a new flavour called Chicken and Waffles as part of the Do Us A Flavor Campaign. It was so popular it returned again in 2017 as part of the Flavour All Stars Campaign and it even returned in 2020 for a limited edition run as well.
In a nutshell, these crisp are designed to taste like the classic meal – they are fried chicken with a hint of maple syrup to bring it all together. The aim of the crisp was to make sure the savoury and sweet hit was perfect to taste. In the 2020 return, it was made as an exclusive flavour for Kroger stores and a 7.7 ounce bag cost $.3.79 to purchase.
As you can tell, this flavour is popular and reviews were incredibly positive with people praising how awesome they are.
