Lay’s New Salted Caramel Flavor Chips Are Sweet And Savory Combined

It seems like the salted caramel trend is here to stay. The combination has consistently proven that it deserves its spot in the dessert section. From chocolate bars, ice cream, cookie dough and even breakfast waffles, it’s a go-to option for lovers of sweet and salty treats. But for chips? Well, we’re not sure about that. Luckily, the new Lay’s Salted Caramel flavor is here so we can finally give caramel chips a try!

When it comes to chips, we typically go for salty, sour or spicy ones. So, we totally understand if you’re feeling a bit unsure about this sweet and salty fusion. Nevertheless, we all know that Lay’s is no stranger when it comes to whipping up unusual and bold flavors. So, this is definitely one of the many flavors that’s bound to stir up some debate among the online community.

The new Lay’s Salted Caramel flavor is out, and it deserves a spot in the dessert section

Instagram user @thejunkgoat was among the first to spot the new snack on shelves. It comes in purple packaging with a caramel bar and rock salt accents on the front. The flavor name is fairly straightforward. So, just like any other salted caramel treats, you can expect a sweet flavor with just the right level of saltiness to balance it out. As indicated on the packaging, it’s a “limited-time flavor,” so chances are, they’ll only be around for the holidays.

According to @markie_devo, “The verdict is… they’re really good. It has notes of butterscotch, caramel, salt, and taste a bit like buttermilk.” Meanwhile, as per @i_need_a_snack_, “The taste is a perfect balance of sweet and salty and is extremely reminiscent of caramel corn!”
