Lay’s Toronto College Street Pizza chips
As one of two new flavours in Lay’s limited edition “Tastes of
Canada” series, Toronto College Street Pizza chips garnered a surprising, “That’s
good!” and a “Wow!” from our judges — consisting of
A&E Editors Lori Mastronardi, Megan O’Toole and Brian Wong, Opinions
Editor Mark Polishuk and Sports Editor Alison Stolz — but we were not
unanimous in deciding whether this chip really tasted like pizza or not. With
an ingredients list consisting of tomato powder, parmesan and Romano cheese,
bell pepper powder and the sketchy “natural flavour,” these chips
definitely have a tangy, spicy, tomato sauce flavour which reminded some judges
of pizza, but reminded others of any Italian food with tomato sauce on it.
Sour Apple gum
Mark: I like it.
Brian: It tastes sour.
Lori: It’s sour apple!
Alison: That’s new?
Megan: It tastes assy.
Alison: Later it tastes bland.
Lori: Why are the pieces of Bubblicious so big?
Alison: It smelled more sour in the beginning than it tasted. I think gum’s
supposed to be refreshing — not sour.
Mark: I like it. Gum? Good! Apple? Good!
