Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese Bagel Review

Today I’m reviewing ”Do Us a Flavor Finalist” chip that has a wonderful overall taste, but doesn’t portray it’s name flavor wise.  It’s the Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese Chip & here is my take on it.

 

For those not familiar with the Do Us a Flavor, it’s a contest where people pitch potato chip flavors to Lay’s.  The pitching portion of the contest was from January- March, people pitched all sorts of flavors.  Now Lay’s has chosen there 3 finalist flavors which are Crispy Taco, Fried Green Tomatoes & Everything Bagel with Cream Cheese.  Now you can find these chips in stores all across America & vote for your favorite one, on the Lays website.  The winner of the contest wins 1 Million Dollars.  Now that you know more about the contest, let’s get into the review of the chip.IMG_6137

Lindsay Hoffman- the creator of the chip.

My first impression of the chip is that it doesn’t taste bad by any means, but it tastes like Cheddar & Sour Cream Chips not an Everything Bagel.  I wish they dialed the cheese down a little and had a more poppy seed, seasme and garlic flavor.  When you bite into the chip at first the flavors explode in your mouth, then 2 seconds later the flavor gradually fades aways into your standard chip.  This is a Kettle Cooked chip so it is crunchier than regular chips, but I think that was a mistake on their part.  Bagels aren’t super crunchy; the bread on the inside is soft and the outer bread is toasted but not crunchy.  All in all, this chip get a 4/5 taste, but a 2/5  for accuracy of the flavor.  The flavors didn’t scream everything bagel with cream cheese.  To this chip there are 3 flavor components- the cream cheese, bagel and the seeds.

Cream Cheese- it tastes like cheddar cheese vs cream cheese, which I don’t hate

Bagel- in this chip there is a hint of a bread taste, but not to much

The Seeds- Although there are seeds on top, the taste of seeds are nonexisting

Overall this chip has great flavor just not accurate, but you should definitely give this chip a try if your into Cheddar & Sour Cream Chips.
