The rumors are true: The rarest of our Lay’s favorites has been spotted at Sam’s Club, and we’re too pumped!
Get a Mouthful of the Midwest
You heard that right. After they disappeared in September of 2018, Lay’s Fried Pickles with Ranch chips are back on the market. The pickle-y flavor is complemented by the crunch of batter and the cool glide of ranch. According to Lay’s, it’s “inspired by a deep fried favorite at Midwest state fairs.” But pickle lovers don’t have to wait for summer to roll around to enjoy this unique taste.
Lay’s Regional Flavors
The Fried Pickles with Ranch chips might not sound familiar to you. The truth is, this flavor was probably in and out before you got the chance to buy it. In less than two months, new flavors were introduced and then pulled by Lay’s. Call it a sneak preview.
Similar to the Do Us a Flavor contest is the Lay’s Taste of America contest, in which consumers voted on their favorite regional flavor. The contest brought us eight little miracles to try: Cajun Spice, Chesapeake Bay Crab Spice, Chili con Queso, Deep Dish Pizza, New England Lobster Roll, Pimento Cheese, Sweet Thai Chili and of course, Fried Pickles with Ranch.
Will the other seven flavors be making a comeback alongside our favorite fried pickles? Right now, there’s no telling, but our fingers are crossed!
Get ‘Em While They’re Hot
If Lay’s taught us anything last year, it’s that this flavor probably won’t be around too long. As far as we know, though, it could be a permanent addition to the Lay’s family. Sam’s Club has Fried Pickles with Ranch chips right now, but if you don’t have time to grab a bag in person, no worries. You can always order them online. The 15-oz. bag will only cost you around $4, so it’s really a steal for a rare snack!
We don’t know if and when these chips will be available from other retailers, but we think this Midwestern treat may just be worth the membership.
