We all love a good portion of chips as a side to our sandwich meal. So, it didn’t really come as a surprise when Lay’s released a BLT flavor back in 2012. After all, the snack brand is famous for its mind-blowing flavor ideas and combinations. Some of their notable creations in recent years include Grilled Cheese & Tomato Soup and Fried Pickles with Ranch. Now, it’s time to relive the good old days when you can enjoy a chip that tastes just like a sandwich.
Essentially, this flavor embodies one of America’s most beloved sandwiches—the Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato. So, you get the savory taste of crispy bacon combined with the juiciness of lettuce and tomato with every bite. Basically, it’s like devouring an entire meal in the form of a chip. Although we have to admit, it’s still quite unfathomable how a chip can emulate the taste of a sandwich. Clearly, Lay’s knows their way around tickling people’s taste buds, and we certainly have nothing against that.
This sandwich-inspired snack made its debut in April 2012, just in time for the National BLT Sandwich Month. The brand officially marketed it as a “Classic BLT” flavor which sported a brown packaging. This limited-edition flavor was gone for quite some time, but it did make a brief comeback in 2017. It then came in a purple packaging, featuring only the word “BLT” as its new flavor indicator. An exclusive variant was also released in Canada, which came in blue packaging.
Lay’s BLT-flavored chips through the years
Three years later, we finally have this old-time favorite flavor back on shelves again with yet another brand-new look. Thanks to Instagram user @lilyangel1990, we can be sure that the BLT-flavored chips are definitely back. Plus, we even have an idea of how they look now. So, hunting them down in stores should be a little less challenging.
Unfortunately, we still haven’t got official word from Lay’s regarding the stores that would carry this BLT flavor. However, rumor has it that they’re already available at Target, particularly in the southwest region. Well, there’s only one way to find out.
