It’s Monday, which means it’s time for another Eating Styles poll. A few weeks ago, we asked you about your preferred Doritos flavor. Now we want to know: what is your favorite potato chip flavor?
I thought about this the other day because I had salt and vinegar chips for the first time since I was a child. When I tried them back then, I hated them and thought they tasted like something you would wash out a toilet with. But when I tried them this time around, I found I loved that astringency (even though they raped and pillaged my mouth). It’s part of getting older – your taste buds get duller, so you start to like foods you didn’t like as a kid because you either can’t taste the bad parts or, as with the salt and vinegar chips, they jolt your taste buds awake.
But salt and vinegar isn’t the only potato chip flavor out there. There are the classics: plain potato chip, barbecue and sour cream & onion. Then there are the more experimental flavors such as dill pickle and buffalo wings. When you’re standing in front of a wall of Lay’s or Kettle chips, which bag do you go for? Vote for your favorite potato chip flavor below and explain in the comments.
