Canadian Lay’s Gets Bacon and Poutine-Flavored Chips

The Lay’s Do Us a Flavor contest in Canada has unearthed four unusual flavors, including a Bacon and Poutine variety

Hey Canadian residents, which flavor would you vote for?

Lay’s Do Us a Flavor has done it again with the wild and wacky chip flavors, this time offering four unique fan-voted Lay’s varieties from our North of the Border friend. The finalists in the Canadian Lay’s contest include Bacon and Poutine, Jalapeño Mac ‘N’ Cheese, Cinnamon Bun, and Tzatziki. All four flavors have hit shelves (with Mac ‘N’ Cheese and Tzatziki also available in wavy variety), and fans will vote on which flavor they want to be around in a more permanent fashion, through October.

We have to admit we’re a bit more intrigued by the Canadian chip creations than our own; Americans chose Wasabi Ginger, Bacon Mac ‘N’ Cheese, Mango Salsa, and Cappuccino. Canada’s answer to the sweet stuff was the cinnamon bun variety, which is definitely a head-scratcher, and we are unsure how the tangy flavor of tzatziki will translate into a chip.

In case you’re wondering, Maple Moose won last year’s Lay’s contest, and yes, that is the most Canadian thing you’ll learn all week.
