Taste test: These chips appeared to have the same three colors of potatoes — dark purple, light purple and yellow — as the Old Glories from Saratoga chips, but thankfully Lay's played the color combination as a "medley" rather than claiming it was red, white and blue like Saratoga did.
The chips looked nice, with wiggly shapes and bubbly surfaces adding to the nice color variety. I crunched in to find a fairly consistent texture and taste among the three kinds, and that was a good thing, because they all had a nice crunch and were fairly crisp, with a good raw potato type of flavor that was brought out nicely by the sea salt.

Smell test: Nice rich potato smell, a lot like Kettle Chips brand.
From the package: “Limited Batch mix of 3 potato varieties” ... “Take a moment to savor the fall harvest with limited batch Lay's® Kettle Cooked Medleys Sea Salt chips, a seasonal blend of naturally colorful potatoes, slowly-cooked in small batches and sprinkled with sea salt.”
