Typical Memphis Tourism Public Relations:

"We're happy because Memphis is in a national promotion and we didn't have to do anything for it," said Denise DuBois Taylor,vice president of public relations for the Convention & Visitors Bureau.

Everyone needs to go to lays.com and vote for the Coney Island Hot Dog flavor chips. Could you fucking imagine HOT DOG POTATO CHIPS?!?!?!?! It sounds too good to be true.

I've had hot dog flavor chips before, they were Synder's of Hanover brand. If I remember correctly, they were pretty vile. I wanna vote for New Orleans seafood gumbo chips – those sound REALLY gross.

Lay's Tastes of America™ chips taste test:

Memphis Barbeque – Hard to differentiate from regular Lay's BBQ. Maybe a little tangier, naybe a little spicier. Seems to be modeled after Corky's dry-rub (Memphis' most famous yet mediocre BBQ chain).

California Cool Dill – Better than Tom's Dill & Garlic, but still can't touch Zapp's Cajun Gator-Tators (possibly the best chips ever created) for mouth-watering dill flavor.

don't know about the shrimpy one, but the rest are some damn good chips.

Me and my girlfriend cannot stop eating those fucking Zapp's!! The flavor is "Cajun CRAW-TATER" and we can't figure out what a fucking CRAW-TATER is. It's like the cross between a crawfish and a potato. It's like some genetic monster created in a lab. Or some elusive creature hiding in a Louisiana swamp. I have seen the/a factory in N.O. but have never been inside. Don't know if they give tours. I think the Hubrig's pie factory does, though. Junk food junkie.

The mysterious and elusive Crawtator, indigineous to the murky swamplands located by the waste disposal pipe behind the Zapp's Potato Chip factory.....

The Craw-tators are great, but the best is the Dill Gator-tator! Oh, and the Lays Memphis BBQ isn't bad. It doesn't capture the feeling of Payne's or the Big S, but it's got a fairly good lock on Tops.

When you say Coney Island flavored are you talking about the 100's of greasy spoons in Detroit and it's metro area that sell Chili Dogs, which they consider a Coney Island hotdog, or a traditional NYC Coney that is a straight dog (no chili) and a side of kraut? Detroit's don't sell sides of kraut but will throw some cheese or chili on your fries for 75 cents more.

There's a Detroit chip maker called Uncle Rays (which I didn't even know where it was based til Mick Collins told me) that do all kinds of flavored chips like catshup, mustard, pizza, pickle, and shrimp cocktail..I'm sure they're working on a Coney Dog...

Also the Hungry Howies Pizza chain offers a Coney Island pizza...It's got chili, hotdogs, onions, cheese and mustard on it...no kraut tho...

I don't even know what an authentic coney island dog is comprised of. I've been eating chicago dogs ever since I've been in Wisconsin-- those things are great, 100% beef dog, relish, pickle, sport pepper, yellow mustard, diced onion, diced tomato, celery salt, steamed poppy seed bun, and no goddamn ketchup. Chicago may have lost your automobile, but they sure make a damn good hot dog. Don't even get me started on Gyros.

I've never been this eager to post on a bulletin board. But if you are serious about your snack foods, then you have to go to www.zapps.com and test the Crunch-O-Meter.

finally taste-tested the Memphis Barbecue Lays chip and Scott's right... it's solid Tops, with a hint of Barbecue Shop... minus the insane heat. not bad.

cool pic of a kid on a skateboard on the California chip.

on the bag, not the chip.

These new BBQ chips are good, but I don't taste the Memphis in 'em. Taste like regular fuckin' BBQ to me. Haven't tried the California Cool Dill yet, but I'm sure they taste just like any other dill pickle chip. What I wanna know is why one flavor is named after a city and the other a whole fuckin' state. Seems like a big-time corporation like Lays would be a little more consistant, don't ya think?
