China gets the best and most innovative food products developed by major chains, and this is exactly one of those times. Lay's just premiered its Pepsi and chicken flavored potato chips there.
The flavor is based on a surprisingly popular recipe for chicken in China. The dish requires chicken wings, fried in a wok and caramelized in soy sauce, on which the cook adds spices and cola.
The resulting chip is spicy and sweet, just like the Chinese like it.
“In potato-chip form, the [pepsi-chicken] flavor is vaguely similar to barbecue with a sugary aftertaste. If there’s any hint of Pepsi, it’s fleeting and lacks fizz,” AdAge describes.
Previous Lay's flavors include chips with a subtle aroma of lemon tea, a cucumber variety and a hot-and-sour fish soup product.
