Hot & Sour Fish Soup Flavor

Last week I was in the supermarket, and I just had to stop and take this picture for you. It cracked me up: Lay's potato chips, Intense & Stimulating: Hot & Sour Fish Soup Flavor.

Doesn't that sound delicious?

There are actually lots of fascinating flavors for familiar foods on the shelves here. Not just for chips, but also for yoghurts (aloe-flavored yoghurt once took me by surprise), cookies, and drinks.

Here are two more examples from the Lay's potato chips family; let me know which one you'd like me to bring next time I come visit from China.

Did you want the "classic great taste," Italian red meat flavor?

Or perhaps rather the "cool & refreshing" blueberry flavor?

And believe it or not--someone has dedicated a whole blog post to Lay's potato chips in China.

In het nederlands: In de winkel kan je hier de wildste smaken kopen. Lay's is een bekend Amerikaans merk--ligt misschien in Nederland ook wel in de schappen?--en het was zo grappig om hier de smaken te zien die speciaal voor de Aziatische markt ontwikkeld zijn. Je kan in Amerika echt geen chips met vissoepsmaak vinden!
