It's not a dream. It's not a rumor. Crawfish Flavored Lay's potato chips are a real thing, and you can buy them in Lafayette.

As you'll see on the bag, they're actually labeled as "Spicy Crayfish Flavor" but I'll let em slide on the crayfish part being that they're imported from China.

Almost all the writing on the bag is in Chinese so I can't really tell what it says about the potato chips, but there is an ingredients label sticker in English that lists some of the seasonings.

  • Spicy Crayfish Seasoning
  • Chili Powder
  • Onion Power
  • Garlic Powder
  • Sichuan Pepper Powder
  • Paprika Extract

The most interesting ingredient I see listed is the "artificial flavor (crustacean and fish)".

Clearly there are many more ingredients listed, these are just the ones that seem like they are the most responsible for giving the chip it's "crawfish" flavor.

I found these at the Asian Market in Lafayette on Johnston next to Piccadilly.

It makes sense that these probably taste pretty good because, it's really not that far removed from the potatoes we boil with our crawfish, right?

Now, I have yet to open a bag and try these chips yet. I will soon and I'll video it for you and let you know what I think.

Have you tried the Lay's Crawfish potato chips yet? If you have, what do you think?
