Funny how I happened to be in 7-11 again the other day. Out of the corner of my eye, I saw some unfamiliar packaging, and took a closer look to find the details of this new flavor.
I never saw this one coming.
This KFC Original Recipe surprised me. After the Chef’s Signature series and then the 25th anniversary flavor retrospective, I wasn’t expecting this KFC x Lays Thailand collaboration.
Lays Thailand continues to celebrate the flavors of the past 25 years. I’d had both of these before, but I don’t believe I wrote about them.
There was the nam phrik phao flavor—something like an open flame chili paste in the translation.
Longtime readers of this site will have noticed a new design introduced this month. What’s this all about? I wanted to move the blog to a static platform, and I chose the Academic theme on Hugo.
I took a long train ride across 6 degrees of latitude. Bangkok is about 13 degrees north, so I’ll call this a narrow road to the slightly north.
When I got to Bangkok, I went straight to the snack aisle.
You’ve seen, perhaps, the Devil barbecue potato chip in Thailand. I’d had the one in the silver packaging.
There’s also a Devil flavor in a red bag. “Let me try this one too,” I thought the other day.
A lot has happened since my last post about a surprising “Chef’s Signature” flavor.
That includes my purchase and careful happy hour tasting session of a Devil barbecue chip, retasting the signature salted egg and trying a new signature roasted chili flavor.
If anything in the snack aisle of 7-11 is going to hurt you, it may be the SHOCK potato chips (crisps) from Lay. I found all the warning labels irresistible and promptly bought a package the first time I came across this new flavor.
