Lay's Stax Avocado and Sweet Mustard

Buy Lay's on Amazon #ad

Taste test: This version of Stax came in a can with a pull-out tray, much like other Chinese Stax flavors, but the green color of the crisps was a definitely distinctive quality. Do avocado and mustard go together? I didn't think so, but I just Googled "avocado and mustard" and got 36 million results, so evidently they do!

I grabbed a few Stax from the tray and crunched in to find a nice crisp crunch and a very tasty flavor, definitely more mustard than avocado, with a bit of mustard kick initially and a nice level of sweetness. The flavor did go beyond mustard, but I couldn't specifically taste the avocado, yet whatever I did taste went very well with the mustard for a very tasty combination.

Knowing it was supposed to be avocado, I think I could detect some in the aftertaste, but the reality is that if not for the avocado pictured on the can — along with the green color of crisps and my Chinese translation software — I don't think I would have correctly identified the flavor. (It's a good thing I've come to distrust import labels, as the one on this can said that it was cucumber flavor!)
