We came, we saw, we ate a lot of chips and drank a lot of wine. It’s National Potato Chip Day, and to celebrate our favorite snack food, we’ve created this video pairing the three new chip flavors with three different kinds of wine. At 11:00 in the morning. This was not a good idea.
I must admit, I felt pretty cool when Lay’s reached out to me and asked if we wanted to celebrate National Potato Chip Day (March 14) with them. We, collectively, are huge fans of snacking, if you couldn’t tell, and Lays makes snacks. Snacks we maybe binge eat in private. But anyway! We came up with a very important assignment for them — give us the proper beverages to pair with the brand’s three new eater-suggested flavors — Sriracha, Chicken & Waffles and Cheesy Garlic Bread. Amazingly, Executive Research Chef for Frito-Lay, Stephen Kalil, complied, and made us the above video. Tomorrow, we’ll be posting our very own flavor taste test (along with an “adult beverages” pairing) but for now, enjoy drink pairings straight from the horse’s mouth!
