Lay’s Do Us a Flavor: A New Hope. The Bacon Wrapped Jalapeño Popper Lay’s will be released as a Walmart-exclusive flavor! After the disappointing announcement for the ‘traditional texture’ Lay’s chip (Crispy Taco) as the finalist, there’s still the possibility your preferred flavor will hit shelves! If Walmart has an exclusive, and there were 10 flavors announced as semi-finalists, what’s stopping Frito-Lay from doing store exclusives with the remaining six flavors…? 🤔
Last week, Lay’s announced their semifinalists for the “Do Us A Flavor” competition, which included some Foodbeast-worthy flavors like Nashville Hot, Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Popper, Crispy Taco, Fried Green Tomato, and Everything Bagel. While only the latter three of these flavors made it on to the final round, it looks like we’re gonna get a chance to taste at least one of the semifinal flavors.
Multiple sources confirm that Walmart will soon begin carrying the Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Popper flavor that didn’t make it to the finals. Instagram user and junk food enthusiast CandyHunting is reporting that Walmart will be exclusively carrying the flavor, which BrandEating has confirmed and also noted that it’s already begun to pop up in Walmart stores.
What’s even more exciting about the existence of this flavor is that it opens the pathway for the other semi-finalists to potentially be sold in stores as well. Since Nashville Hot was snubbed from the finals, that gives me hope that I’ll still be able to try this trendy flavor as a potato chip in the future.
If not, these Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeño Popper Lay’s still sound pretty fire, and I’ll definitely be heading to Walmart to grab a bag or two.
