The rumors are true: The rarest of our Lay’s favorites has been spotted at Target, and we’re too pumped!
Get a Mouthful of the Midwest
You heard that right. After they disappeared in 2019, 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 dressing. According to Lay’s, it’s “inspired by a deep-fried favorite at Midwest state fairs.”
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 just a couple 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? 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. Target has Fried Pickles with Ranch chips right now at very limited locations for pick-up. The 15-oz. bag will only cost you around $3, 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 ride to Target. Looking for some healthy chips? Our top 5 are delicious and satisfying.
