I liked the Truffle Fries one the best, but I can see the Gyro winning. All I tasted from the Reuben was the rye bread too... then again all I could taste on the biscuits and gravy was the sausage spice so maybe my tastebuds are fucked up.
The Canadian ones this year sound good too: "Cowboy BBQ Beans", "Butter Chicken", "Montreal Smoked Meat", "P.E.I. Scalloped Potatoes".
Funny, "Montreal Smoked Meat" is the name of a line of gay pornos I produced.
You thinking tie-in marketing?
Actually I found this year's selection disappointing. Nothing stood out for me except Butter Chicken and that was underwhelming. I haven't tried the others so maybe I've judged too soon. I wish we had something like Biscuits and Gravy!
I am frankly disappointed by all of these flavors.
I love truffle mushrooms especially the mac & truffle they had limited at Noodles & Company a few years back.
Think Lloyd would approve the biscuits and gravy, Brad buddy?
Probably should share some of that chips with Lloyd after harvesting the corn field endlessly.
After looking at the different flavors, I much rather have my Baked Lays!
I can't find these damn Do Us A Flavor chips anywhere near me, and I live in one of the biggest cities in the nation
I actually live near a Frito-Lay plant, too
I had to see the name on the first bag to understand the word. Sometimes english get's pretty creative on pronounciation.
This is actually the first of these where I've liked every flavor.
Here in Alabama the Biscuits & Gravy is the hard to find flavor. Everyone keeps buying that one out & ignoring the others.
depends on where in Alabama, cause I'm near the coast and they're everywhere.
I just want to say that Subway has them. They have the smaller serving bags. They actually are running commercials mentioning they have exclusive rights and no other restaurant has them. I found the biscuits and gravy one the most tolerable. The peppery taste builds up the deeper into the bag you go. That was the only one I finished the bag.
Can confirm. Got Gyro Chips at Subway...
"Shit! I love that smell! Reminds of biscuits and gravy!"
Hey, Brad, if you were going to submit a flavor for next year's "Do Us A Flavor", what would it be?
Steaming pile of dog shit.
I voted for biscuits for ya, Brad!
truffles are awesome. Truffle infused cheese is great and truffle also works well with mashed potato.
You got a good idea, I think I might try it with Mash Potatos
The truffle fries flavor is probably the only one I'd try, if I still ate potato chips. The other flavors just don't seem right to me at all.
Also, what the holy fuck is a gyro? Never heard of it before seeing those chips.
it's gyro as in gyroscope not euro as in Europe. It just means to rotate so refers to the upright spit used in kebab houses. . The meat gets called doner pronounced donna outside of the US.
To get pedantic the correct Greek pronunciation is 'Gyear-ose' with a slightly aspirated g in the beginning. The accepted American pronunciation is 'Jeye-roe' but it can be called being insensitive to the original culture (although short of a jamba-juice hippy in San Fransisco, I don't think many people, even native Greeks will care). Go for the middle of the road and that's what I hear most people in the midwest call them. Which is exactly how Brad pronounced it.
You not have many Greek greasy spoons around you? In the Chicago-land area you have at least 2 in every town. Gyros are (most commonly, though Brad said in the video he prefers Chicken) Lamb meat, onions, and cucumber sauce served on a Pita.
You would be correct. I live in the boondocks (South Jersey) and there isn't much of anything here.
How could you have not heard of a gyro in Jersey.
That doesn't seem real.
That's like never hearing of a taco or a pizza.
There are plenty of places to get a gyro, unless you never leave your house.
I don't care how "remote" you are, in South Jersey you can get a gyro. Come on.
That is the most awesome pronunciation of "Gyro" I've ever heard. Thank you
That's just how it's pronounced?
Yup, Brad got the pronunciation right on the money! We have quite a few places that serve Gyros here..... and there's always somebody that comes in looking for "one of them there J-eye-rohs".
o.O Drives me nuts,lol.
His pronunciation is close but not exact. Look at Inquisitor's explanation in the comment above for a better idea or search online. I didn't expect him to get it bang on, and it doesn't bother me, BUT I am thankful that he didn't say JYE-ro !
I would love to try the Gyro chips. There's only one place to get the best Gyro and that's in Greece (trust me, we have a dozen or more gyro places in Toronto, most of them Greek owned, and they still can't get it right, except one place). And they're suppose to include fries in the wrap, not lettuce. I don't know why that's depicted on the bag.
If all you taste in the truffle fries are potato with a hint of sour cream and onion then there is something wrong with the chips. Truffle fries do not taste like potato with a hint of sour cream and onion. Truffle fries are suppose to taste like truffle. If you want to try what truffles taste like, go to an expensive Italian restaurant at the beginning of November and ask if the waiter if they have white truffles. They usually do on a pasta appetizer special.
Had a similar experience finding these chips. The store I shop displayed them next to the beer and drink mixers.
I burned through the Gyro chips damn quick. They were the best to me by far and my sister felt the same way. Biscuits and gravy I liked the least, but I'm not a fan of sausage gravy anyway. I didn't really think the Reuben one tasted like reuben--mainly rye bread like you said.
The Truffle Fries were pretty good 2. My second choice after Gyro.
I've only been able to get my hands on the Gyro so far, which i didn't mind since they were my first pick. They're REALLY GOOD!
As someone who lives outside America, I'm really curious what these chips would taste like, but I'll probably never find out. I've never even heard of any of those flavours before, apart from truffle fries. Oh, well. Third world country...
The best one BY FAR is the Reuben. The Gyros one is the most disappointing because it tastes absolutely nothing like gyros. The Reuben one is the only one that actually comes close to resembling what they are supposed to, and you can taste all of the different layers of a Reuben sandwich. You can smell the rye bread, and you can easily taste the thousand island dressing and sauerkraut off the bat and then the 'meat' flavor comes in. It's pretty amazing how well they pulled it off. The gyros one just tastes like burnt vegetable seasonings. The biscuits & gravy one tastes like pepper, I think that was a bad choice for a potato chip seeing as the main qualities of b&g are that it is hot and wet. The truffle fries one is ok I guess? It's just some vague savory/salty flavor. It doesn't really taste like anything and it seems HIGHLY unoriginal to me. The Reuben one took some real ingenuity and creativity to pull off, it was more than throwing some store bought seasoning on chips. Hopefully since the Wasabi Ginger ones managed to pull off the victory last year, the similarly creative NY Reuben will be able to get enough votes this year.
Brad's trouble finding the chips is extremely relatable. This is the first year I've actually found them in stores, but even now it's very hit and miss. The first year, I only ever found them once at a 7/11. Last year, I only ever saw the capuccino ones because no one wants those. Even now, the Wasabi Ginger ones are very difficult to find and those were last year's winner and are a regular Lay's flavor.
My husband and I tried all but the Reuben one. We liked the Biscuits and Gravy one the best. The taste begins with that sour cream flavor, then after a couple chews you taste that sausage grease flavor. Now I'm no fan of sour cream, so if it had more of a butter/cream flavor instead of sour cream, I would be all over it. That's my choice for the winner.
You don't like Sauerkraut?!
I'm offended :(
You've come a long way with your chips America. I remember being in NYC about a decade ago and having a hankering for some ketchup chips. "This shouldn't be a problem, I'm in perhaps the most cosmopolitan city in the world" I thought to myself so I began wandering the streets but the only flavour any store had was BBQ. Oh not just regular BBQ though, heaven's no. They would have BBQ, Honey BBQ, Mesquite BBQ, KC's Special Recipe BBQ - God Damned you Americans love your BBQ because there was nothing else at any store I went to.
No offense, and I personally love ketchup on almost any hot sandwich... but ketchup chips sound gross.
I can sorta see it if you look at the chips as being just another form of potatoes like fries and tater tots..... and a lot of us put ketchup on our fries! :)
Pringles sells (or used to sell) ketchup chips.
They were terrible.
I don't like ketchup with most things, but I enjoy ketchup chips. I'm sure it depends on the chips themselves, though, because I can imagine it tasting terrible if not done properly.
It's a ketchup on french fries taste if they are good really.
This guy hates Man of Steel, Fantastic Four, and now he hates reubens.
You might as well just say you hate America.
I do believe you're right.
Every night Brad gets on his knees, folds his hands in prayer and says:
Fuck America! ...and get me some more Buscuits n' Gravy!
Superman was created by Jews, the Ruben sandwich is pretty Jewy. No matter what the Fox News crowd tries to make you believe, with their Levins, Colmes, and all their shabbat-goy traitors, America is not synonymous with Jew.
I like them in this order: 1.) biscuits and gravy 2.) Reuben 3.)Gyro and 4.) Truffle fries. I didn't really dislike any of these, but I liked the truffle fries chips the least because to me they just tasted like spiced chips, nothing really special. I agree with Brad, biscuits and gravy where the best.
It'll be Brad's luck if, after the Zombie Apocalypse, all he can find to eat is rye bread, sauerkraut, and pickles.
The truffle fries do taste pretty authentic to me. Biscuits and gravy were pretty good. Gyro was rather disappointing. Haven't tried the Ruben yet.
I liked the Gyro the best, and the truffle fries tasted like sour cream and onion, all I tasted for the Reuben was pickle and vomit almost, but the biscuits and gravy tasted like sausage, and I hate the taste of sausage. but biscuits and gravy was sold out for so long down here
I got the biscuits & gravy and the truffels today.
The truffels one is OK, kind of ordinary.
I didn't think the biscuits one was that great, it was also just OK.
I could have got the gyro one, but I didn't.
I would like to try the reuben, haven't seen it though.
I'm with Brad, I'll buy the hell out of Biscuits and Gravy if it wins. It's just the right blend of sage, with a little too much black pepper.
Out here in Seattle nobodies touching the Gyro. There are tons left on the display. The rest are nowhere to be found.
I preferred the biscuits and gravy myself. The gyro one was okay, but not great. I didn't like the reuben one at all. Haven't seen the truffle fries one yet.
Gyro is the only one I've bought more than once. Hopefully the winner.
I do like the reuben though.
Kinda wish I had known you were looking for the gyro ones, I work at wal-mart and we just got an entire shelf worth of those specific ones.
I just recently found the lays do us a flavor at the 7/11 near me. Finally one of my favorite parts of the year.
Whether strange, gimmicky, foreign, or decades old... Brad tries it!
