Lay’s Potato Chip Flavor Contest

The girls and I went grocery shopping last week ,and I came across the new Lay’s Potato Chip flavors: Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese, Crispy Taco and Fried Green Tomato. I am actually a fan of all of those things, so I thought it would be fun to buy all three and do a taste test!

I had to include the girls, of course, and they were very excited that I was letting them eat three different kinds of chips at once!

They dug right in and didn’t hesitate to give me their opinions!

Aurora looks like she is taking this very seriously, haha!


Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese

Me: I thought it tasted almost just like sour cream and onion. I didn’t get any “everything bagel” flavor. I really like an everything bagel so I was definitely disappointed when I tasted this one. It tasted good, just nothing like the name. This was my least favorite.

Hailey: This was Hailey’s favorite! She didn’t care that it didn’t taste like an everything bagel, she just liked the flavor.

Aurora: Aurora liked this one too. But she is two, so she liked them all.

Crispy Taco

Me: I was really impressed with this one! I thought it was going to taste like a chip with a packet of taco seasoning thrown in, but that was not the case at all. I could taste lettuce and ground beef flavoring, and I didn’t hate it! It was really good if you like tacos!

Hailey: Hailey didn’t mind this one, but she was set on the Everything Bagel flavor and didn’t want to give this one a real chance.

Aurora: Still two. Still just wanted to eat chips.

Fried Green Tomato 

Me: I loved this one! First of all, it’s a wavy chip, which I think is way better than the original ones. It starts off kind of tangy, but then there is a little kick at the end. This was my favorite of the three!

Hailey: She didn’t like this one. I don’t know if it was the slight spiciness at the end or just a flavor she has never experienced before.

Aurora: She liked this one too, it was a chip after all!


I would say the Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese is the most kid friendly. No bold flavors but still tasty.

Crispy Taco and Fried Green Tomato have more elevated flavors (for a potato chip, that is!). They are both really good and taste like their names.

And, two year olds just like chips.

That’s all for the Lay’s Potato Chip taste test. We had a fun time trying the chips. Now what else can we taste test!?

What is your favorite potato chip flavor?
