Review - Lay's Chile Limon Potato Chips

Hello there dear readers. This is my new blog where I will share eating brand reviews. I decided to take off my new endeavor with Lay's® Chile Limon Potato Chips. This flavor was launched in India quite a while ago. But I decided to do this review anyway. I often stick to Classic Salted, Magic Masala or American Style Cream & Onion. I decided to try out Chile Limon flavor. I wouldn't have tried this if it weren't for my whimsical mind. But, I must say that I was quite happy that I did.

I picked this bag for INR 10 at the local supermarket. This pack contained 20% extra chips. So, it looked like a good deal, considering it is Lay's which is mostly air! Let's take a look at the product.

Like I said, air! Lots and lots of air!

Smells great!

Price - INR 10
Weight - 31.2 grams (26 grams + 5.2 grams / 1.1 oz)

As I opened the pack, a tangy waft of flavors greeted my senses. The first bite into the chip was quite dramatic. My face might have looked like this baby's when the uber-sour notes of lime hit my taste-buds. The lime felt very strong at first. It contained lime juice powder which managed to taste like freshly-squeezed lime juice.

Fresh and crispy

But somehow, the second bite tasted good enough. And the subsequent bites just got better. I could taste a subtle zest of red chilies, because the lime overpowered the hotness. I think there should have been more chili. It also left a good aftertaste in the mouth. So, I am happy that I tried it.
