Canada vs. America: The Flavour Chip Off

August 19, 2014

I’m sure you have all seen the creative & wild assortment of potato chip flavours lining the shelves in the snack food aisles lately.

That’s because Lays has once again turned over the invention kitchen to its hungry snackers to come up with their next best crunch.

But did you know these flavour competitors differ across border?

Let’s take a look; It’s  Canada vs America



Bacon Poutine, Cinnamon Bun, Jalapeno Mac & Cheese and Tzatziki

It’s obvious Poutine would never fly in the USA as I’m pretty sure Costco is the only place that sells it… But I am surprised Cinnamon Bun wasn’t optioned there. Perhaps the famed Cinnabon brand would have sent out their hitmen.

That being said, I think the clear Canadian winner will be Bacon Poutine, although I’m rooting for Jalapeno Mac & Cheese, who’s collaborator just happens to be from Calgary, AB.

Now on to AMERICA


Cappuccino, Wasabi Ginger, Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese and Mango Salsa.

Talk about taking a trip outside of the USA and coming up with such interesting foreign flavour profiles like Wasabi Ginger and Mango Salsa. But lets call a spade a spade: this is America and the Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese will for sure be the winner!

That said it’s the Cappuccino flavour that intrigues me the most and would most likely receive my vote.

But what about you!? Which country do you think brought their A-game to this years competition and which flavour do you think would be your favorite?

We’d love to know!

Maybe a little Mac & Cheese topped with Tzatziki served with a Cappuccino to wash it all down with
