Lay's Do us a Flavour - any good?

what are your ratings on the 4 flavours? (caesar, grilled cheese, maple moose, perogy) some of us don't - or shouldn't - eat enough chips to try them all :)

  1. I tried the perogy one, it wasn't very memorable; Not very flavourful. I hear the maple moose is pretty good.

      I hated the moose; I had one and the aftertaste was terrible....

      1. I had the caesar. At first I thought it tasted like sour cream and onion, but the more I ate, the more the caesar dressing came through. And that's exactly what they taste like...kraft caesar vinaigrette. If you like that, then you'll like these. I personally wasn't a fan.

        1. My kids got excited about these, so w have tried them all. Most ended up in the garbage.
          Perogy platter was our favourite but tasted a lot like sour cream and onion. Caesar was our second choice but none of us had more than a couple of chips. None of us like maple moose or grilled cheese. Maple moose was more of a sweet BBQ flavour. However a friend who is trying to go gluten free was really excited about the grilled cheese flavour. She felt like she was getting the flavour of the bread from the chips. We were happy to leave the bag with her!

          1. i have tried all four flavors, kinda liked the maple moose,perogy and Caesar flavours but i thought the grilled cheese was horrid. the only company i know that does chip/crisp flavors properly is Walkers chips from Britain. their Moroccan lamb was one of the best Ive had from them.

              Lay's and Walkers are the same company.

              1. re: h3llbringer

                no they are not the same, they are both owned by pepsico yes but they are not the same. Krispy Kreme, Dairy Queen and Subway subs are all owned by McDonalds but i wouldn't call the the same either..
                Walkers has a way of getting the flavors of their chips to taste exactly as they are printed on the package unlike lays where the flavor seems to be an approximate if you think about it hard enough.

                1. re: youdonut

                  Not sure about this post. Is that a typo? McDonald's, Subway, Dairy Queen and KK are all separate companies. They are not all owned by McDonald's.

                    Yeah, I thought McDonald's opened chipotle to compete with subway?

                        You really can't believe what you read wherever you read it. Not to mention on such shady looking sites! Wikis are crap without further validation. Do your own research. ;-)

                        1. re: youdonut

                          check out what they own on that site now! Anyone can add our change anything.

                          1. re: youdonut

                            According to the NYSE MCD is currently only McDonald's stores.

                              Well I know they got out of Chipotle quite a few years ago. Same with Boston Market. I didn't realize they are back to only being McDonald's.

                            2. re: youdonut

                              They even have Burgers Priest on that yeah it's a very credible list...

                              I believe they bought into an already existing Chipotle and expanded and sold off.

                              1. re: justsayn

                                They sold it in 2006 I think. The SO and I sometimes go into Wikipedia holes on stuff like this. Once we did a soft drink one and including checking sources it lasted six hours. The thing we do on our days off when the kids not around :) Anyhoo sorry for the off topic sub thread!

                      2. re: youdonut

                        I assume you mean "flavours that taste like something else"? I like Tyrells, especially the Mature Cheddar & Chives, but they don't taste of anything other than crisps with cheese an chives.

                        Trying to avoid eating any...
