Calling All BLT Lovers: Lay's BLT Chips Are Here for a Limited Time

  Calling All BLT Lovers: Lay's BLT Chips Are Here for a Limited Time BLT is the first of four flavors being rolled out this summerIt was just a month ago that Frito-Lay announced it would be recalling two different types of its jalapeño-flavored chips after discovering that they may have been contaminated by salmonella. Both Lay's Kettle Cooked Potato Chips and the jalapeño flavor of Miss Vickie's Kettle Cooked potato chips were recalled, and the company stated that it was the seasoning used on the chips, and not the chips themselves, that might have been contaminated.

Lay ' s came out with three new potato chips as part of its Do Us A Flavor contest for 2017. Second is its Fried Green Tomato flavor, a wavy chip that tastes surprisingly spot-on: A little tangy, a little peppery, a little grease-soaked-breading-y.

Lay ’ s is known to have some pretty unique flavors—think Dill Pickle and Southern Biscuits and Gravy. But the three finalists in their “Do Us a Flavor” contest might just be their most original yet . We tried all three, and our favorite by far was the Fried Green Tomato flavor.

Leave it to Lay’s to come up with a way to transform our favorite foods into chips.

The chip giant recently announced the three finalists of its “Do Us A Flavor” contest, and one of them—inspired by a true southern classic—immediately caught our attention.

Millions of fans submitted flavors to this year’s contest, and Crispy Taco, Everything Bagel With Cream Cheese, and last but certainly not least, Fried Green Tomato came out on top. But the question is, are they any good?

The idea to capture the flavors of fried green tomatoes in a chip was submitted by Gregory Pope of Charlotte, North Carolina. “Fried green tomatoes remind me of my childhood in Georgia,” he wrote. “Fried to a golden brown, salted and peppered, they were always the perfect feel-good food prepped by my dad for our family dinners.”

I haven't eaten lots of fried green tomatoes (nor seen the movie, for that matter) but this mix of tomatoes and spices worked well. Not a super-standout among potato chip flavors, but still a very good one. Shop: Buy Lay ' s at Amazon.com.

And so the mad scientists at Lay’s got to work. Somehow, they did it! Chip-fans agree that the wavy snacks managed to capture the taste of homegrown fried green tomatoes—even down to the tangy rémoulade sauce!
