Lay's Kettle Cooked Greektown Gyro

Taste: This entry in the Lay's Do Us A Flavor promotion (released alongside Truffles Fries, New York Reuben and Southern Biscuits and Gravy) promised to taste like a sandwich stuffed with the tasty Greek meat and lots of fixin's.

The chips had wiggly shapes, like the other Lay's kettle-cooked versions, with generally a dull yellow color and a good helping of greenish seasoning.

I crunched in to find a crunchy feel and a taste that just didn't impress me. The mix of spices was generally OK, not really tasty but not bad, but something in there (not sure what) just was a bit icky. The overall mix didn't taste like gyro meat, nor tzatziki sauce or fresh veggies. It wasn't spit-out bad, but it wasn't good either. If someone had offered me these chips with no indication of flavor, there's no way that I would have guessed "Greektown Gyro" or anything like that.

In terms of sequence, this was reviewed after Truffles Fries but before I had even managed to find a bag of New York Reuben or Southern Biscuits and Gravy. Even without the benefit of eating those last two, I'll put out my prediction right now that this one does not win.

From the package

"There's a great little Greek place in town that makes the most amazing gyros. That uniquely cooked and flavored meat, covered in tzatziki sauce, onions, lettuce, and feta cheese fresh pita…mmm!"
