Lay's Mieng Kam Krob Ros

Taste test: These chips had a flavor based on a Thai dish called Mieng Kam Krob Ros, but when I Googled it, most things were about this very snack, so the circular reference didn't help me to understand the intended flavor. The picture on the bag provided some clues, as it showed sliced limes, green and red peppers, cheese cubes and shrimp. The chips had curvy, somewhat bumpy shapes with a bright yellow color, plus a smattering of green bits.

I crunched in find a very unusual mix of tastes, with some spices and shrimp most noticeable initially, then lime after that — and it kept changing. Together it lit up my mouth with flavor, really nice. I ended up eating just about the whole bag while writing this review. There wasn't much heat during eating, but I did notice a fairly brief hot aftertaste.

Quite an eating experience!
