Taste test: This version of Lay's consisted of narrow-rippled potato chips with a pale yellow color and what appeared to be a typical sour cream and onion seasoning, with little bits of green scattered among the ripples. The picture on the bag showed rippled chips without the green seasoning. It also showed a bowl filled with several kinds of seafood: crab, shrimp, mussels and calamari (plus hot peppers and parsley). The ingredients indicated that the only one of those sea critters that was actually used was crab, and the taste seemed to be match up with that, as there wasn't a whole lot of seafood taste, though there was a bit. But the chips were very crisp and had a nice crunch, plus they were tasty and had a mildly hot aftertaste. We offered these to three tasters to try to guess which seafood was actually in the ingredients. Two got it wrong, but one did correctly identify crab (as she guessed either crab or mussels).

Aroma: Not much, just some very mild spices.
