Lay s Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper Potato Chips

I need to get out more because I’ve never seen or heard of a bacon wrapped jalapeño popper. This flavor is a Walmart exclusive. (Spotted by James D at Walmart.)

  1. I wanted these to taste so much better than they did. Maybe the expectation of bacon ruined it for me. I just really don’t care for any bacon flavored snacks unless it’s just plain bacon cheddar.

  2. I had these yesterday and they don’t know what they want to be. When you boil the name down, it largely ends up as chipotle (jalapeno + smoke) with the chip acting as a fried character and the bacon being faked as smoke. And… it’s really not even much of that. Everything blends together too well, which would be fine if you got the intended profile, but it doesn’t. Not a bad chip per se but not one I’d ever bother with again. 5/10

  3. These are not a Wally World exclusive. I bought them at ShopRite. They taste hot, but not very jalapenoy. They have no bacon flavor. Taste burnt.

  4. We enjoyed these chips so much and are very disappointed that they are not available any longer. If the company has any that they would consider selling, we would be very interested in purchasing them. Never tasted anything that great.

    Sincerely yours,

    Charlene and Tommy Shoemake

  5. Over many years my family and I have enjoyed the variety and excellence of plain and flavored Lay’s potato chips. So, we anticipated the exciting flavor of the bacon wrapped jalapeño popper chips. We are extremely disappointed. There is no flavor, only a wisp of something that does not fit the advertisement on the bag. We think Lay’’s should go back to the taste test kitchen. Until the flavor of the bacon wrapped… chips improve, we stick to the flavors we know and love. 1 out of 5 stars.
