Lay's Classic BLT
Taste test: These potato chips had generally a golden yellow color with a slight orange glow from seasoning powder on some of the chips, plus many specks of green and some specks of red-orange.
I crunched in to find a very nice crispness, as we've seen from many of the new Lay's varieties recently, and that good texture helped to bring out the best in the tasty mix of seasonings. But the key question here was whether the seasonings tasted like a BLT sandwich, and unfortunately they did not. The taste was more like a cheddar cheese chip with maybe some tomato and a few extra spices, but not really anything resembling bacon. It's a high order to duplicate the particular magic of a BLT on a potato chip (speaking of which, has any else even attempted a lettuce-flavored chip?) and Lay's didn't quite get it right here. Still, these were tasty, enjoyable chips that would go good with a sandwich, even if they can't replace one.

Smell test: On first whiff, I though, not much like a BLT, as I couldn't sense any bacon or lettuce, though maybe a hint of tomato. But as for smelling like a BLT, on second and subsequent whiffs, I thought, maybe yeah.
