Lay's Cheese Lobster Potato Chips (China)

Purchased Price: FREE
Size: 45 gram bag
Purchased at: Received from a friend
Rating: 4 out of 10
Pros: Cheese flavoring makes it somewhat tolerable. Not as gross as I thought it would be. Having some English translation on the packaging. It’s a regular flavor in China, so if you find yourself there, you can pick these up. Lobster on packaging looks like it enjoys having cheese poured on it.
Cons: Couldn’t really taste lobster; it has more of a generic seafood flavor. The cheese flavoring, at times, tastes like butter. Smells sweet. I couldn’t eat an entire bag in one sitting. Makes my fingers greasier than regular potato chips. Putting cheese on lobster sounds weird, but that’s the American in me talking.

    Totally fresh idea:

    The USA sending crappy tasting, sub-par food to China.

    I like it…

    I clicked this link completely hoping not to see any asian characters in the post. I was disappointed. This actually sounds good to me.

    If it tastes anything like the “crab” casserole that the chinese buffets have (imitation crab meat with loads of cream cheese and cheddar cheese), I would love this chip.

    Wait. How is the cheese sometimes tasting like butter a “con?” If you were to put butter and cheese in a popularity contest and surely butter would win.
