Lay's/Archive1 - Flavors - Asia


One flavour sold primarily in southern Asia is called "Magic Masala". This flavour is very, very popular in India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh. It is also sold in Indian deli stores in Canada and the United States. South Asian Lay's chips are ridged, closely resembling another Frito-Lay brand in North America, Ruffles.

Beside Magic Masala, Flavours popular in India are "American Style Cream and Onion" and "Spanish tomato tango". "World Classic Salted" is available as well. Recently, Lays India introduced a contest to name new flavours, and then invited the public to taste and vote on the best of them. The new flavors in production now are HipHop Honey and Chili, Cheesy Mexicana, Mango Mastana, and Tangy Twist. The winner of the contest was "Mango Mastana".

Flavours featured in Thailand include Nori Seaweed, Basil, Squid, Spicy Chili Squid, Seafood and Mayonnaise, and Spicy Seafood.

In Thailand, there are Classic, Sour Cream & Onion, Cheese & Onion, Mexican Bar-B-Q, and Japanese Nori Seaweed. Temporary international flavours have also been introduced, such as French Mayonnaise, Balsamic Vinegar and Salt (England), Garlic Soft Shelled Crab (Hong Kong), Soy Sauce, Salmon Teriyaki (Japan), Lobster, Bacon & Cheese (America). Other traditional "Thai" flavours include Tom Yum, Thai Chili Paste, Thai Seafood Dip, Chili and Lime.

Since its acquisition of Chipsy, Lay's chips (marketed as Chipsy) in Egypt inherited the Chipsy range of flavours as well as the pre-merger Lay's flavours. These flavours include salt and vinegar, cheese (most likely based on Rumi cheese and the most popular flavour), seasoned cheese, tomato, kebab on charcoal, and chili and lemon.

Lay's, with its original brand, is also produced by the Saudi Snack Foods Company in Saudi Arabia, and is exported to the other GCC countries. It is available in several flavours, including ready-salted, salt & vinegar, chilli, chilli-lemon, ketchup, and French cheese.

Famous quotes containing the word asia:

    Incarnate devil in a talking snake,
    The central plains of Asia in his garden,
    In shaping-time the circle stung awake,
    In shapes of sin forked out the bearded apple....
    Dylan Thomas (1914–1953)

    [N]o combination of dictator countries of Europe and Asia will halt us in the path we see ahead for ourselves and for democracy.... The people of the United States ... reject the doctrine of appeasement.
    Franklin D. Roosevelt (1882–1945)

    So-called Western Civilization, as practised in half of Europe, some of Asia and a few parts of North America, is better than anything else available. Western civilization not only provides a bit of life, a pinch of liberty and the occasional pursuance of happiness, it’s also the only thing that’s ever tried to. Our civilization is the first in history to show even the slightest concern for average, undistinguished, none-too-commendable people like us.
