When I think of a lobster covered in cheese, I think flaky bits of hot pink flesh melting into bubbling layers of havarti. Never once has it crossed my mind to consolidate these colossal flavors into one, tiny potato chip. However, it seems that Lay’s is determined to make the impossible happen.
Marvo over at The Impulsive Buy recently received some novelty swag, aka Cheese Lobster-flavored Lay’s, thanks to a benevolent friend. According to Marvo, this is a regular flavor in China, and the packaging promises a “Classic Great Taste.” Unfortunately, this is where our hopes of potato chip decadence die.
Despite being “not as gross” as he expected, the cheese tasted oddly like butter and carried a sweet aroma, as opposed to a pungent smell. Yet the worst part was that the taste of lobster was barely distinguishable, making the entire bag of chips nothing but a greasy sack of disappointment. That’s not to say that I’ve given up hope. C’mon Lay’s, I have faith in you. If they can make Pepsi-Flavored Cheetos palatable, you can do anything.
