Why Not: Weird Chip Flavors for National Potato Chip Day

The recent firestorm D-grade beef over political correctness in Lay’s “Do Us A Flavor” campaign has proven once again that America takes their junk food way too seriously. The correct response from a brain holding onto common sense like a sweaty cliffhanger is something more along the lines of “those all sound nasty.” But novelty sells because the American public likes going out of the ordinary here and there, for the same reason why we took too many hard drugs in college and Taco Bell is running their Cool Ranch Doritos Taco campaign like it’s about to be hand-delivered to you by both a naked Jesus Christ and LeBron James in his Harlem Shake outfit.

But wait, did you think the US is the first to try novelty chip flavors? Au contraire. Turning a flavor that has no business into potato chip form is a popular practice everywhere. And even more exciting, the word’s shit gets way, waaay crazier than a controversy lightning rod like “Chicken and Waffles.” Now brush the greasy crumbs from your chin and find out just how bored snack food execs really get.

And happy National Potato Chip Day, or whatever…

Not really potato chips, it’s a bag of low-cal edible flavored paper. But it is batshit enough to include. Now everyone can be the weird kid who eats the construction paper!

Know of more weird chip flavors around the world? Let us know about them?
