Curry Flavored Potato Chips

Lay's Curry Flavored Potato ChipsFrito-Lay Canada offering new Frito Lay Potato Chips in new flavors.

Curry (pictured) and Wasabi are the new flavors, and are offered in Toronto and Vancouver only. The company is making an effort to sell more potato chips to Asian consumers.

Also, notice the small cartoon graphic of a happy face at the upper-left corner of the bag. This only seems to appear on the Curry and Wasabi flavors. At first it looked like the Maruchan symbol, but it's not. I don't recognize it as anyone else's brand. Anyone else know?

Frito Lay's Shrimp Chips is also expected later on.

The logo is a Frito-Lay logo that they also use on their Gamesa products in Mexico. I'm not sure why it's on Canadian potato chips though.

A flavor combo like that might make me eat Lays again!

The little happy face? I thought that was always on Lay's potato chips, whatever the flavor. I've lived in both northern and southern CA, so maybe that's it.

Tried the Wasabi..they were hideous..green colored chips flavored with horseradish! Not real Wasabi (I guess it would be too expensive). I have heard good things about the curry flavor and will try that next.

These are awesome. Nice cold diet coke and a few bags of curry chips. Almost as good as Frito Lays cheese corn chips!

I bought them both today at Superstore in vancouver.

I haven't tried Wasabi but I love wasabi (theres a gelato place here that has an Apple Wasabi flavour that's good too) so I hope it's good.

2 friends and I opened a bag of the Spicy Curry and it's awesome! We all hope it stays. One of my friends was so amazed he says it's his favourite chip now and hopes it never leaves even eclipsing Lay's Dill Pickle which has been his favourite since he was a young child!

Just finished a bag of the Curry flavor. They are delish..nice curry taste with a bit of heat. Definitely will re-purchase!

that little manchurian guy is a symbol relating to Frito-Lay, I have seen the same face on Frito-Lay products in Mexico.

I've tried both the Wasabi and the Curry. The Wasabi flavour is for the most naive of tongues. I couldn't even pick up the flavour of wasabi at all. Thumbs way down.
The Curry however was not bad. "spiciness" must be equivilant to taste in this case, because the chips are not the least bit spicy.
They should have released this eveywhere but Vancouver and Toronto, because even the most white-washed person here would laugh at these "asian" flavours.

Very good chips, the Curry. Not a wasabi fan, but shrimp has me curious.

The back of the bag says that the smiling face is what to look for when you want Lay's flavors from around the globe.

We went to see the Festival of lights in Vancouver, where the host had a bag of these curry chips. Sweet baby Jebus they were killer! We all went and bought a store out of them on our way back to the states.

Wow...I had no idea these existed!

I must find these...somewhere! I'm in NY :\

These are absolutely delicious and have been popping up lately outside Vancouver and Toronto; at least they are showing up in the Okanagan valley in BC.

If they stop making Curry chips, I will go to their headquarters and kill myself on their front steps.

They make my otherwise miserable life worth living. All hail Curry chips!!

But seriously, folks, these are truly the best chips I've ever had, and I am quite paranoid that they're going to stop making them. I figure that it's not likely to become popular . . .

Curry flavor....skeptical at first, but am sold after one chip! Could be a little hotter! Available in Calgary, Alberta (Canada) too!

Since this is an anonymous forum I can admit...I'm addicted to the wasabi chips. Naysayers might be encouraged by this fact: you might need a few bowls to fully appreciate 'em.

Have yet to try the curry; will now, though!

I've been waiting way too long for Curry flavoured chips. I want to find a way to make them a permanent product on the shelves. I got mine far outside of Toronto. Zellers carries them!

Imagine for a second if Jesus were a food. A food that was cooked for our sins. Curry Lays would be Jesus.

They're not bad, but I find they taste like Lays Roasted Chicken chips only with a little more punch...

I live in Pennsylvania and I'm craving the Curry chips I got in Napanee Ontario on my vacation. I hate chips, but these... they were different. My family went through three bags in one week! We loved them! We want them here in PA!

I might have to move to canada if we don't get our own local supply chain soon.

OK...FELL IN LOVE THIS THE CURRY CHIPS!! alittle diappointed that we dont have them here in the US. What we get stuck with the old boring flavors....BBQ, plain, salt and vin, sour cream and onion. what the heck?

The logo is a Frito-Lay logo that they also use on their Gamesa products in Mexico. I'm not sure why it's on Canadian potato chips though.

The logo has also showed up on Frito-Lay products in the US for a brief while, but is mostly used by subsidiaries throughout Latin America.

Good news, last week Frito-Lay released an "improved" version of the "Spicy Curry" flavour. It's called "Spicy Indian Masala" and is an appealing take on the potato chip! Although both versions can currently be found along side each other, I'm thinking this version will eventually 'push' the '06 version off shelves as chip lovers are finally granted something a slightly more authentic in flavour. Currently, the website states the new flavour is available in Toronto & Vancouver only. Check http://lays.ca/en/ ("NEWS" section) for a little blurb on Lays' latest creation.

Happy chipping!

I have been trying for the last couple of months to locate anywhere online that might have these curry chips that a friend brought from home in Canada. Anyone have any idea where I might find a place to get these??

For all those in the US looking for curry chips, look no further than your local Target store! Target carries a brand of curry chips (low fat baked, no less!) under their Archer Farms label. They are fantastic!

Many years ago while working as ski guide in Swiss ski resort I bought a bag of Curry flavoured potato chips. I could not believe a chip could taste so good, and curry at that. Missed them ever since. Everytime I go through the chip isle I look for Curry flavored chips. Very very happy to see Lays has come out with Curry flavored chip. If people can get their head around curry and chips they will love them. I can see curry becoming the top flavour of all their brands. Thanks you Lays. I have waited to many years to admit,lol.
