Lay's Yam Crisps Pastoral Tomato
Taste test: We always associate the Lay's brand with potato chips, but this oddly shaped bag was actually the second time that Lay's ventured into yam crisps, a follow-up to their cucumber flavor. For whatever reason, it seems all brands on yam crisps use this thundersticks-style bag. The crisps had a bright beige color with a smattering of fine orange powder, and they were smallish and came in odd, irregular shapes, some remotely rectangular but many of them not.
I crunched in to find that the crisps were very thin but had a not-quite-crisp feel, just slightly stale, but they did have a nice sweet, mildly tangy tomato-like taste. The experience was much different from potato chips, but I ended up eating quite a few of the small pieces and like them a lot.
