Holy crap! China has had Pepsi Cola chicken-flavored Lay’s potato chips since August!

According to AdAge:

Cola chicken is a common recipe in China, with chicken wings tossed into a wok and caramelized in soy sauce, spices and cola. In potato-chip form, the flavor is vaguely similar to barbecue with a sugary aftertaste. If there’s any hint of Pepsi, it’s fleeting and lacks fizz.

Now that I know there’s a Chinese dish called cola chicken, I hope Panda Express offers an Americanized version of it really soon.

Here’s the TV commercial for the cola chicken-flavored chips:

      Those are available in the US as well. They also have Ketchup & Fries, Cheese Fries, Hot Fries, French Toast Sticks, Onion Rings, and probably more that escape me at the moment.
