"Name That Chip!": Chinese New Year Edition

This evening I hopped on my mountain bike to make a chip and liquid refreshment run. Almost everything was closed since it's the first day of the Chinese New Year, but the local 7-Eleven had their doors open. I found a few chip flavas that we had never consumed so I spent the big bucks in order for us to play another game of "Name That Chip!". Prior to watching Woodlawn (which I highly recommend), I introduced mi familia to three new chip flavas: lemon chicken, green tea, and bacon sausage. Megan was the first to figure out the Lay's lemon chicken flava. Chalk it up to her culinary expertise. The Lay's green tea chips were straight up nasty, but somehow Rose was eventually able to decipher the green tea nastiness. I like green tea, but my recent green tea exploration has been quite disappointing. The bacon sausage Pringles were a hit, and Rose was able to taste the crispy, salty, and delicious. I was really surprised to see this flava in the store and hope China will make more porklicious products. Go China. Despite the funkiness of the green tea chips, the lemon chicken and bacon sausage chips made this edition of "Name That Chip!" an enjoyable experience. Xin Nian Kuai le!

Lay's green tea chips are just wrong.
Bacon sausage Pringles make Josiah and me so happy.
China isn't afraid to try new chip flavas. Some are yum while others taste like scum.
