Lay's is introducing a trio of new potato chip flavors to kick off the 2021 summer season, and they're continuing the pattern of chile mango flavors we're seeing from big brands this year.
Following the launch of a Mangonada at Baskin Robbins, Lay's is doing their own spicy, fruity variety with a bag of Chile Mango chips. There's not much other detail on the spice blend, but while Tajin was at the core of Baskin Robbins' collab, they appear to be sitting this one out.
The other flavors that Lay's is bringing to the table this summer include Wavy Jerk Chicken and a Summer BLT. The Jerk Chicken version promises "spicy, sweet, and smoky jerk flavor," while the Summer BLT chip has lettuce, tomato, and bacon seasoning on it.
All three flavors are limited-edition batches for the summer, and are launching this week across grocery stores nationwide.
While the Chile Mango calls our name the loudest, and shows evidence of a budding flavor in the big food game, the other flavors are equally enticing.
