Review: Lay's - Wasabi Ginger Kettle Cooked Chips

Lay's Wasabi Ginger-flavored Kettle Cooked potato chips are one of the finalist for this year's Do Us A Flavor contest.

A 2-and-7/8-oz bag was $1.49.

Besides the added crunch and thickness of the kettle cooked potato chips, there's a sharp, just slightly spicy, horseradish note and a vinegary, tangy soy sauce finish with just a tiny bit of ginger to it. It's basically a lighter version of the soy and wasabi combination you might eat with sushi.

The horseradish flavor is just enough to distinguish it without veering into sinus-clearing, choking territory (dare one of your friends to eat a small ball of wasabi to see what I mean).

Overall, Lay's Wasabi Ginger Kettle Cooked potato chips would probably be better described as "wasabi soy-flavored." Fortunately, wasabi soy makes for a pretty tasty combination with a distinctive bite paired with tangy, savory notes. The mildness of the flavor tends more towards the mainstream, but I prefer the more powerful punch you find with these Blue Diamond almonds.
