When I blended fruit and milk together with grandma's hand-held blender at the age of 10, it was a bland and tasteless mess that needed to be doctored up with sugar and ice cream. When the folks behind Fruttare throw fruit and milk together, it actually tastes good. Tempted by a commercial I saw on television a few days ago, curiosity made me put the fruit bar on my list. No longer wondering what my next product review will be, I bring to you Fruttare Strawberries and Milk--the creamy dreamy treat that made my afternoon. (Without all the sugar, shame, and calories....)

Sriracha chips, but I was wrong, wrong, wrong. THIS is the flavor that made me chew each chip slowly. My taste buds were confused. My mind couldn't wrap itself around the flavor concept. These were flat out awful. Lay's, Do us ALL a flavor flavor and keep the Chicken and Waffles in the vault. Lock them away, drop the vault key in acid, and let us never speak of this atrocity again. Yes, it's that serious.
I got my mitts on the third and final flavor about two weeks ago. Having seen a product review from an old classmate on YouTube, I figured it was at least somewhat edible. I was wrong. But I agree with him "where's the chicken!?". (Csandreas is so funny, though. Watch his vids.) These were terri-bad and tasted a lot less like fried chicken, and more like somebody made bacon and syrup flavor come together on a stale potato chip. The savory and sweet element of actual chicken and waffles was missing. If I try to reach for a deeper explanation as to how they taste, I really can't. It honestly tasted like somebody dipped their chips into syrup on accident, let them dry, and then said "put some bacon salt on 'em" for taste. That's it.
There's a lot of strange sweetness going on with these chips. Maybe if you like the flavors of potato, syrup, and "chicken", these chips will appeal to you. You'll vote for them, and all will be right in your world. I personally will be devoting my love to the Cheesy Garlic Bread Chips. I think they're a disaster flavor that falls directly into the "novelty chip" category. Were there no other flavors worthy of the final spot? Goodness. Well, I suppose someone out there will love them. I personally would rather go to the park, sit on a bench, and watch the hungry city birds fight over ever morsel. Lay's Chicken and Waffles are an oral tragedy. Waste of potatoes!
Remember kiddies, Vote on Facebook for the flavor of your choice. Can't find the flavors? Hit eBay and Amazon. Call your local stores. I highly suggest the latter, because people are out of their dang minds charging 23 dollars for a bag of chips. Just because we can't find them, doesn't mean ya gotta overcharge. Don't be a dork. Meanwhile, I'll be sticking to that Cheesy Garlic like glue. Voting every day for the cheese!!
