As someone who often enjoys the "Lays" chips and having eaten serious amounts of "Lays Light" (because less saturated fats but that's not the point), I find myself munchin on the regular kind and here is what I found:

- Brown chips
- Transparent chips
- Transparent chip grease-glued on another brown chip
- Quite thin and break easily

Now the "light" variety:

- Nice yellow colour
- Opaque (!)
- Pack a nice crunch

So what does this mean? The Lays company is purposefully making the regular kind of taters look and taste crappy to boost the sales on the "light" variety. Here are the benefits:

- Less expensive to make because of less oil usage
- People think they're the healthiest thing around and choose them over the competition
- When people do go back and eat the regular ones they notice the difference and go right back to "light", without questioning why the taters are so shitty
- Regular kind is shitty because who cares.

I say we embargo Lays.

I think Walkers are just called Lays everywhere except the UK

But the point is the greedy corporation is lowering the standards of good potato chips, those capitalist pigs.

Bet it isnt, you'd be surprised how many people from the UK don't know. That said, why would they?

So why would they simply not make the regular Lays like their Light variety? "now with X% less fat (or whatever), same good taste!" you know something like that?

By the way I've heard that Doritos has some shady marketing tachnique too. Like they constantly reduce the spices they put on their regular variety (nachos, BBQ, whatever), and then they release a new variety like "super cheese" or whatever in which they just put the same amount of spices they used to have.

What a strange name for a chip flavor. Never tasted that in my life, weirdo Brit

although in Canada we have our own weird chips that are apparently nowhere else:

Dude, that's "grilled cheese and ketchup". I wouldn't even eat a grilled cheese with ketchup, I won't eat that crap in powder form on some chips? How's that even supposed to be normal?

Brits have to be different from the rest of the world in everything. Also, I never got why Opel cars are branded as Vauxhall in your weird islands.

I wouldn't eat normal jalapenos but jalapeno flavored chips is clearly the best.

Irrelevant, why is this important to awesome people who make music and such?

Because no one likes eating crappy transparent sometimes brown chips, unless you're a special kind of awesome like Ozzy Osbourne.

BAT FLAVOURED CHIPS.

BOOM.

Well I liked those. Scumbag Lays corporation.

To be honest, you only buy what you want. If they make you drop a few more coins for some chips in a prettier package, it's your fault for giving it to them. That said, I also like those Gourmet and Artesanais.
