Taste test: This new line of potato chips from Lay's had a two-way ripple cut that followed in in the footsteps of similar chips from Herr's (who use the name waffle cut) and Cape Cod (using the same name lattice cut). The double ripples seemed a bit narrower and less deep than the Herr's and Cape Cod versions, so there were fewer and smaller holes where the opposing-angle top and bottom ripples intercepted. The chips had a light yellow color with some bits of dark skin on some of the edges.
We crunched in to find a nice crispness and a good strong crunch, with a somewhat mild but very tasty garlic flavor. It was definitely a garlic taste, but it was wasn't garlicky in a bad way, and it mixed well with the strong potato flavor. One of the pieces was a double chip, folded-over and stuck together. With four layers of ripples, that once was thick and super-crunchy, the best one in the bag!

Smell test: Mild, sweet garlic smell. Nice.
From the package: “Take a moment to relax, unwind from your day and savor right now— one delicious bite at a time.” ... “The inspired open cut of our lattice chip allows savory roasted garlic and sea salt to come together in dazzling waves of flavor. We start with Lay's® signature potatoes, sliced twice. Kettle cook 'em in small batches until their extra crunchy and crisp. And let the simple fresh tasting, goodness of real ingredients shine.”
