Taste test: This new flavor of Poppables had the same shapes (round and hollow with a geometric pattern of holes) as the original Poppables flavors, White Cheddar and Sea Salt, with two kinds of seasoning distributed unevenly on the surfaces — a fine orange powder and some larger bits of black.
We crunched in to find a strong, crisp crunch and a tasty barbecue flavor that was tangy and sweet. No heat or smokiness to this one, but it was a nice taste that worked well with the great texture and potato flavor.
Smell test: Strong sweet barbecue smell.
From the package: “Perfectly poppable crispy potato bites” ... “There's something about the light texture & airy, crispy crunch of new Lay's® Poppables™ that makes you go 'Mmmm.' It could be the bite-sized, perfectly popped shape. Or maybe that it's deliciously seasoned with flavor, both inside and out. Either way, we think you'll find this one-of-a-kind potato snack oh so poppable and with about 28 pieces per serving, pretty perfect.”
