Picanha Comparison – HA!

29 Sep

 Snorts with piggy laughter.  Have I got a great story for you today my dear friends.  Mom/dad here are what I would call potato chip connoisseurs.  Yep, that’s right.  They like their potatoes.  And who doesn’t because even I love me some good potatoes of any kind.  Of course, they try to stay away from the snacking but every once in a while, they get pulled in.

Well, for some time Lay’s potato chips have had different flavors they have created and are sharing ‘with the world’.  One flavor intrigued mom.  It was Brazilian Picanha.  But mom took her time in getting a bag.

I mean heck, Lay’s potato chips are like almost $4.00 a bag – can you believe that highway robbery?

Now Picanha is one of mom’s favorite cuts of steak.  In fact, when mom/dad go downtown Atlanta they often eat at a restaurant called Fogo de Chão which is a Brazilian Steakhouse.  There house specialty is mom’s favorite cuts, picanha.  This is a picture of dad getting some of that cut at Fogo de Chão this year.  It is so yummy it melts in your mouth.  Well, that’s what mom/dad say.  I wouldn’t know because no one has ever brought me home a piggy bag.  I’m just sayin’.

But back to my story.  When Lay’s came out with this flavor mom was excited to try it.  She invested in the bag mumbling something about Lay’s is not cheap and what if she didn’t like it?  She gets home with her cherished Lay’s and tells daddy all about it.  They then open up the bag to try it.  That’s when things went south.  Mom hated it.  Hated it.  Nothing like her cherished steak she loves.  Absolutely HATE does not even describe the flavor of these chips.  Now me and dad on the other hoof said they were eatable.  Did we want to rush out and get another bag – no way!

Have you tried any of these different flavors from Lay’s potato chips?  Do you have a favorite.  Do share my sweet friends.


NOTE:  Mom/dad were in no way endorsed for their opinion of these Lay’s potato chips.  This is their sole opinion.

    I usually stay with the regular. Once in a while I’ll get the ranch or barbeque or some other flavor. They are ok for a change but I like potatoes to taste like potatoes….and salt of course.

      YES and YES is what mom says. Like mom says, that’s chips she can’t get back. They were undelicious – snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

    Some of those flavors are enough to make you want to hurl. Have yet to purchase andy (yeah, your mom is right. those things are waaaay to expensive) but did ‘taste’ one flavor that was absolutely horrid. Sheesh, if their chips are so darn tasty why do they have to come up with the weirdest combo flavors. Blech!!

    We love to dip the plain Lay’s chips in plain sour cream. I guess we’re just plain like that 🙂 there is something very addictive about that delicious salty crunch!

    the staff isn’t a fan of potato chips, they are more popcorn shredderers… and the mama bought one what said special flavor, only for short time…. think that was a warning, it was eeeew!!!!… wise decision to make this stuff only for a short time LOL

      Oh brother – we love us some popcorn too. Anytime I can get mom to pop some on the stove, I am so there. Yummo! XOXO – Bacon
      P.S. No added flavors for me. Just straight up or with some butter from the Gods.


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
