Review: Cowboy BBQ Beans Wavy Lay’s – Do Us A Flavour

So Lay’s Do Us A Flavour promotion is back in Canada!  Finalists have been picked and chips are on store shelves.  Rejoice new chip fans!  We will be featuring a review of a new flavour each day this week, so check back.

The first Lay’s Do Us A Flavour review we will be doing is Cowboy BBQ Beans. Lay’s has this to say about them:

“Flavour Inspiration

For Brenda Boghean, heading to the rodeo is a tradition. One of her favourite parts of the festival is the delicious food. Beans, slow-cooked in BBQ sauce, served alongside her favourite cut of beef is the quintessential rodeo dish and really captures the essence of cowboy culture.

We had a bunch of our reports try them and here is what they had to say:

Jon – These are tasty.  They lean on a classic chip flavour: BBQ.  Hard to go very wrong.  They have some molasses taste in there which adds some sweetness and starts to remind you of beans.  I think they do a decent job of reminding me of the BBQ bean flavour, but it’s more smokey BBQ + molasses and less beans.  I will definitely be getting another bag before they are gone.  They also make me wish they made a classic molasses and bacon baked beans.  8/10

Mark – I only somewhat agree with Jon on these ones! I liked them, they are sweet and smokey, I found my bag very smokey but I did enjoy it. I was hoping for a little more bean flavor with these, they didn’t remind me of beans just a smokey chip. Unlike Jon I don’t feel I need to have another bag of these during the promotion.  6.5/10

Helena – I only picked up a small bag of these at the checkout at the pharmacy and I’m not upset we don’t have a bigger bag. They are super smokey. It’s hard to taste any other flavour, the smoke really takes over for me. The chip is a nice thick wavy lays.  That part I enjoyed. I wouldn’t buy the bag again. 5/10
