QUICK BITES: Lay’s Poppables (Sea Salt & White Cheddar)
Quick Bites are rapid-fire reviews without the lame story and full array of images. Today’s quick bite is:
Description: Frito Lay describes Lay’s Poppables as “perfectly poppable crispy potato bites.” This new launch brings with it two flavors: a classic Sea Salt and a cheesy White Cheddar. The shape and texture of these things is what makes them so appealing to me – they’re super puffy potato snacks that are immensely satisfying to crunch on. Additionally, you can eat close to 30 chips in a 150 calorie serving. Pop ’til you drop or something like that.
Lay’s Poppables White Cheddar is definitely the more flavorful of the two. The white cheddar is more accurately a blend of cheddar cheese and romano cheese, and there is some light onion and garlic flavor poking through. They bring us all hope that 3D Doritos will one day return, as they were some of the greatest snacking known to man.
Lay’s Poppables Sea Salt is a much more simple and straightforward flavor but I still enjoy them. They have a good salty & greasy flavor without actually being too greasy, if that makes sense. Personally I like when my potato chips still taste like potatoes. It’s the texture that elevates these – they’re like lattice-cut orbs of potato science.
- Are they better than 3D Doritos? LOL, no.
- Why did they discontinue 3D Doritos? Probably something you did wrong.
- Will they bring back 3D Doritos? Please.
