    Default Did Lays change their recipe?

    Damn it, what happened to Lays potato chips?! They taste god awful now, all bland and starchy, did they change something? They aren't nearly as greasy nor do they taste the same:

    BBQ--Super bland, no tangy bbq flavor
    Sour Cream and Onion: REALLY starchy, and still bland..
    Original: Not nearly as grease ridden, not as crunchy and still bland.

    WHAT HAPPENED? Is this because they are getting rid of trans fats?! IS IT? I NEED TO KNOW, so I can figure out what government official I need to exact revenge upon for this...

    When it comes to potato chips, grease is PARAMOUNT, if I wanted to be all froo froo about it, I'd eat the lame-ass baked chips, WTF happened?!!

    Yet another simple pleasure in life ruined.

    Perhaps I should switch full time to Kettle Chips...these are quite good.

    Yeah, I love Lay's BBQ chips, I didn't have them fom about 2004 to about 2006, when they started the whole stupid non trans fat stuff with the sun-flower on the bag. I relized that they haven't taseted the same, I figured In 2006 when I was 12 at the time, I figured I hadn't had them in 2 years so I figured my tastes had changed, So I figured there would be no point in complaining. I didn't know someone else thought this way.

    I haven't had them in like 6 years or so and picked up a few bags today for the hell of it, and NONE of them taste the same and I'm sure of it. The chips even look different. I'm outraged and plan on writing my congressman.

    I thought they still looked the same, can't say that for the taste, they taste like dry crap now. Serious about the whole congress thing ?

    It might be the oil they use, which might just be sunflower oil.

    Their Stax chips are done in sunflower oil and are oh so good. I can't get enough of them.

    no I'm not serious

    I just like to come-off as totally insane about something that is in reality completely irrelevant in life...

    it is sunflower oil, they got rid of all the artificial ingredients and don't use Hydrogenated vegetable oil anymore. I personally like them better the new way.

    Lay's have always been a generic chip easily exchangeable with the cheaper generic brands like Golden Flakes. Zapp's is where it's at. If only they weren't so expensive.

    Dude, gotta have the Sun Chips. Sun Chips are absolutely delish. They are probably the main reason besides Diet Pepsi and loafing that I weigh 290.

    I actually like McDonald's new McNuggets. The old McNuggets used to have weird dark spots on them.

    BTW, did anyone ever notice that all McDonald McNuggets come in two shapes, oval shaped and foot shaped.

    Fewer, claws and eyeballs are full of trans fat.

    That's why I switched to Lays Kettle Cooked. Those things are SO amazing! There better for you (relatively) and get so addicting. They pretty much make whatever you had before taste like flakes you buy to make mashed potatoes with.

    And Pringles Selects will steal your income.

    Finally a potato chip thread!! I hate the way Krunchers taste today vs when they origionally came out. I think the company got bought out and changed the recipe. The origional jalapeno flavor was killer
