Taste test: When we first spotted these in a supermarket display box proclaiming "New!" we assumed that the Lay's folks had a shorter institutional memory than But we later realized that the flavor that we reviewed back in 2007 was Jalapeño Cheddar, not Cheddar Jalapeño, so we'll go along and count this as a new flavor.

We opened the bag to find that the chips had gently curving shapes with some bubbles and bumps, a strong mix of yellow and orange colors on the surfaces, plus many large green bits scattered throughout. We crunched in to find a nice crispy feel and a strong kick of cheddar, hot peppers and other spices. It was a good mix of tastes that built up to a moderate heat, probably a notch hotter than the 2007 ones. Not a huge standout as flavors go, but still pretty tasty.

Smell test: Very strong tangy cheddar smell, not specifically like jalapeno, but the spices really helped to bring out the cheese.

From the package: “Cheesy • Spicy • Crispy” ... “Contains milk ingredients.” ... “Serving size About 17 chips (28g)” ... “No artificial flavors”
