Lay's Fried Pickles with Ranch

Taste test: These potato chips from the Lay's Tastes of America series had a nice yellow color with some areas of browning, topped with a light smattering of green seasoning bits.

I crunched in to find a nice crisp, light crunch and a flavor that quite surprised me. Having eating at least 57 kinds of pickle-flavored potato chips, I can say that these had about as weak of a pickle flavor as any of them. They didn't make up for the lack of pickle by overdoing it with the ranch, either — there wasn't much ranch to speak of. I liked the taste a lot, as it was a nice mild mix of spices and worked very well with the good potato taste. But if not for the name on the bag, I might not have even associated the flavor with either ranch or pickle.

Smell test: Nice savory smell, but I could notice neither pickles nor ranch dressing.

From the package: “Inspired by a deep-fried favorite at Midwest state fairs, get a taste of fried pickles with ranch. Who's ready for a ride on the Ferris wheel?”
