Review: Lay's Cappuccino-Flavored Potato Chips

Lay's Cappuccino-Flavored Potato Chip is the result of their second annual Do Us A Flavor contest. According to the bag, the chips contain zero caffeine, but includes natural coffee flavor (which isn't necessarily from coffee).

A 9.5-oz bag was $2.50 on sale.

There's a strong chocolate-coffee, or mocha if you like, aroma straight out of the bag.

The taste reminds me of layered coffee-flavored wafer sandwiches except with a weird oily and very lightly potato-ish component. There's a definite chocolate-coffee flavor tinged with a bit of sugar and cinnamon.

Overall, Lay's combination of cappuccino flavor with crunchy potato chips isn't good, but it's as awful as I thought it would be. I'm sitting here eating the chips as I write/type this, but I'm not quite enjoying it and wondering who I can pawn the rest of the bag off to.

If you're looking to try these, I recommend getting the small snack-sized bag in case you find them as strange as I do.
