Lay's Potato Chips Tue, 01/23/07 2:55 PM (permalink)
Has anyone else tried Lay's since they switched over to 100% sunflower oil? The package says "Same Great Taste," but I think they actually taste better now.

    Bet you can't eat just one now!

    I have not tried them yet, may have to go and snag a bag.

      I did try them. They do taste better. I had the plain and the salt and vinegar.

        I really got to like the Limon Flavor they test marketed in this area then dropped. Very addictive chips !

            Yes, I've tried them and ate the whole bag (I certainly couldn't eat just one).

              I think I have to agree. They're even lighter. I like the Lay's light chips too.

                Before the switch, sometimes you'd open a bag and the smell was awful - raunchy as we used to say when we were kids. This was likely due to the oil as potatoes are potatoes.

                Now, much improved. Smell better, taste better.

                  I have always liked everything Lay's made. I particularly enjoy the Ruffles fried in their oil that is low fat or something like that. Anyway you don't get much calories from them.

                    I bought a bag of Lays the other day and notice they tasted very fresh. When I was closing the bag I noticed they were now cooked in sunflower oil...they were the best Lays...I thought I just happen to get a bag that was recently made.I say Bravo to Lays

                        I thought they seemed "stickier" .. to the teeth after eating a few
                        (and yes I know it is said potato chips are worse for teeth than candy because chips stick to teeth more)

                          The new chips are heavy on the salt.

                              The cheddar and sour cream ones that I tried were good. I think they have improved.
