Lay's American Classic Flavor

Buy Lay's on Amazon

Taste test: These potato chips had wide, angular ripples and a light yellow color, with occasional areas of browning along the edges, plus some bits of potato skin. There didn't appear to be any seasoning on them. The "American Classic" label was a bit confusing, as I'm an American who has eaten and reviewed over a thousand kinds of potato chips, but even I didn't know what it meant. Were they supposed to be like Lay's Classic? The ripples sure didn't make it look that way.

I checked the Ingredients and found a mention of "Flavors" so I figured that there was some sort of mild flavor beyond just the potato and salt. I crunched in to find that they had a fairly strong crunch and tasted like regular, plain salted potato chips. Good ones. But I didn't notice any special flavoring as mentioned on the label.
