Lay's Taste of America Potato Chips


They'll be here on July 30th, but only the Regionally AppropriateTM flavors in any given market. It looks like Lay's used Roadfood as their guide in creating these flavors.
 
The eight exciting flavors, all featured in a kick-off video on Hannah's YouTube channel, are:  
  • Cajun Spice (Central Gulf): Prominently featured across beloved dishes like Jambalaya and Blackened Cajun Chicken, this Gulf Coast iconic flavor includes a mix of garlic, paprika, onion and oregano. The flavor celebration will take place at the Louisiana Shrimp & Petroleum Festival in Morgan City, La., from August 31 – September 2.
  • Chile Con Queso (Texoma, Mountain, SoCal): Inspired by a Southwest favorite, this flavor infuses the legendary Tex-Mex taste of velvety cheddar queso with a dash of spice. The flavor celebration will take place at the Houston Food Fest on August 18.
  • Chesapeake Bay Crab Spice (Mid-Atlantic): Inspired by crab shacks along the Atlantic, this flavor is a taste of the Bay with custom-blended spices ready to savor. The flavor celebration will take place at Chesapeake Crab & Beer Festival in National Harbor, Md., on August 18.
  • Deep Dish Pizza (Heartland & Mid-America): A taste of the iconic stuffed deep-dish pizza inspired by the famous Giordano's pizza recipe. The flavor celebration will take place at Navy Pier in Chicago, Ill., on August 11.
  • Fried Pickles with Ranch (Midwest): A deep-fried favorite at Midwest state fairs, you can't pass up the opportunity to try this fair food fav. The flavor celebration will take place at Missouri State Fair in Sedalia, Mo., from August 16 – 18, with Hannah Hart on August 16.
  • New England Lobster Roll (Northeast): Inspired by the lobster shacks of the Northeast, fans can now get the flavor of fresh lobster served on a buttery grilled roll. The flavor celebration will take place at Maine Lobster Festival in Rockland, Maine, from August 1 – 5, with Hannah Hart on August 2.
  • Pimento Cheese (Southeast): Inspired by Sunday socials and Southern charm, this flavor is a taste of creamy sharp cheddar with a hint of cayenne pepper. The flavor celebration will take place at Shrimp & Grits Festival at Jeckyll Island, Ga., from September 14 – 16.
  • Thai Sweet Chili (Pacific Northwest):  The food truck scene of the Pacific Northwest inspired this flavor, boasting the delicious blend of sweet chili sauce with a hint of heat. The flavor celebration will take place at Bite of Seattle from July 20 – 22, with Hannah Hart on July 20.
Thought experiment: What Regional flavors did Lay's miss? I wouldn't touch Wisconsin Fishfry, but Butter Burger would be hard for me to resist.

Unless something happened in the intervening years since I left the Midwest, Fried Pickles would be a Southern flavor.
Thai chili spice for the PNW is interesting.
I’m not sure anyone actually here would have named that as the quintessential flavor, but they sound tasty at least.

Yeah, they have spread to Michigan, Wisconsin & Minnesota, but not to the point where they are a distinctive regional flavor.  The weirdly wide-spread taco pizza might have been interesting....

Fried Dill Pickles have been here in New England for at least 15 years... So I'm convinced it's a New England thing...
However... The Mississippi Delta claims ownership of the fried dill pickle per the Stern's Roadfood books

I have rarely seen and never ordered Fried Dill Pickles in Wisconsin. Why would I, we've got Fried Cheese Curds.

Even better, we have fried whole belly clams and fried RI style Calamari

yuck. Deep dish pizza chips? Kind of tired of the Chicago / deep dish stereotype. Lived in the area my whole life and know few if any locals that like it?

Too bad the Midwest can’t grt in on some of those other flavors. Pimento cheese, crab spice.

You'll find plenty of Windy City Roadfooders on the forum that love deep dish pizza

What I want to know is the chemical composition of the flavor additives.
 
And here I thought Clark Griswold had retired years ago.

Understood
Folks I know on the forum want fried clams, hot wieners, and pizza strips when they visit Rhode Island yet folks I know locally are going for pulled pork nachos and banh mi.

Where's the ketchup and hot dog flavor, beloved all across "most" of America?

I "get" some flavors involving spices … , e.g. "Old Bay" or "salt, pepper, & vinegar".
 
What I don't "get" is the process by which to make a potato chip taste like hot dogs, crab cakes, or lobster!
 
I used to believe E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company when they promised "Better Living through Chemistry" back in the 1950's.  Now, I wonder.

Buddy,
 
Even though it and this are just a bot off-topic, thank you for the Princess Bride clip which brought back a wonderful memory of my youngest daughter, then 6, nagging me to take her to see it when it first came out.  I rolled my eyes at the thought, but it turned out to be truly wonderful!
 
Then, it occurred to me that my wife most likely had never seen it.  As it presently is being shown on Cinemax I recorded it for her.  She 'd it.  Thank you, again.

You're welcome.
 
But I'm still waiting for some acknowledgement from the suddenly "apolitical" MilwFoodlovers.  To his credit, he behaves himself on these boards, but sit next to him at dinner and you may not get a word in edgewise.  And that's if you agree with him.

My guess would be that Lay's came up with all these flavors to push other brands off the market shelves.

Maybe, but they do it every year, and the special flavors are almost always limited editions.  More likely, they either display them on an end cap, or they come in special shipper cases where the box turns into its own display stand.

    The prefix "a" means "not" when added to a base word. ie. amoral means NOT moral..and I'm NOT being political!!

    Wisconsin get's Chicago pizza. I'm not surprised.
     
    Not a good flavor match to Giordano's. Closer to Kraft Pizza in a box in my opinion.
