Flavour Inspiration

Darryl Francispillai was inspired by his South Asian heritage and love of Indian food for his Butter Chicken Flavour. It’s one of his favourite dishes and a nod to multiculturalism!

Here’s what the reporters thought:

Jon – I found these did a pretty good job of tasting like their name sake, butter chicken. They have a nice combination of classic butter chicken spice flavour, maybe like garam masala, cumin and turmeric, with a hint of cinnamon.  I don’t get much of the yogurt creaminess that I associate with butter chicken, and I get a certain tanginess, I think from the spices.  I liked the flavour, but didnt love it. 7/10

Mark – This out of the 4 was my favorite. I found this very unique and it really didn’t taste like any other chip I’ve had before. It was mild; it was not a spicey chip. I agree with Jon that it was very butter chicken tasting. I found myself slowly continuing to eat the chips without noticing, always a good sign when you are opening a bag! I highly recommend them if you are a fan of butter chicken. 8/10

Helena – This was the first bag I tasted. My initial impression as the chip hit my mouth was that it was tangier than I expected. It had that classic lays chip taste but with a dash of butter chicken. There’s the tiniest bit of spice to them but barely mentionable. All in all it was a good chip. Me and Jon almost finished the (large) bag In one night. 6.5/10

Look at that folks, looks like we have a new leader by just a hair – 0.1 up on Scallop Potatoe!
