Lay's Pico de Gallo

Taste test: These potato chips looked very nice, as the large, unbroken chips had lots of reddish seasoning on their surfaces, plus some green spots.

We crunched in to find an excellent crispness and light crunch, with a nice little explosion of salsa flavor. At first it seemed particularly tomotaey, but some really tasty spices kicked in after that, with garlic and cilantro particularly noticeable in the aftertaste. They really didn't hold back on the spices here, and that combined with an excellent texture to make for some irresistible chips. Great job here by Samuel Oliveros and Lay's!

Smell test: Very mild salsa smell, but nice.

From the package: “Flavor inspired by one of our employees” ... “I chose Pico de Gallo because it's a flavor that many people enjoy in my part of the United States. I thought a chips and salsa combination would be great since chips and salsa alone are very popular. I also chose cilantro to add an authentic kick to the whole idea. I am so excited for everyone to try my new flavor! — Samuel Oliveros”
