Taste test: This was one of four international Lay's flavors released under the "Passport to Flavor" sub-brand. Intended to emulate the taste of a Brazilian steak, the chips had a light yellow color and curvy shapes with some bubbles embedded side, plus lots of green seasoning bits on the surfaces.
I crunched in to find a very nice texture — very crisp with a light, brittle crunch. Even better than that light feel was the strong taste. The chips were loaded with a very tasty mix of spices that seemed to be a good match for steak with chimichurri sauce. Really quite good!
Aroma: Strong, tangy chimichurri smell. Really nice!

From the package: "Steak & chimichurri sauce" ... "Picanha, the finest cut of Brazilian steak, is skewer-grilled with coarse salt to lock in flavor. Mix in the bright flavors of chimichurri sauce & you'll be saying 'Mais, favor!' "
