More yin yang potato chips

A few weeks ago I tried to help inform you, my Western audience, of the particulars regarding the yin and yang of potato chips. Since there was such an outpouring of interest (ha), I decided to venture forth to the supermarket to gather more evidence.

Refreshing Lime flavor, both natural and cool!

Green Cucumber flavor. Again natural, cool and totally yin.

 Another yin flavor from the Natural & Cool line: Revitalizing Kiwi

And the final proof--Lay's isn't only making yin potato chips, there's an Natural & Warm line as well that contains yang flavors like mango and lychee! So, get started on your Chinese food therapy with a big bag of artificially flavored crisps. You can thank me later.

  1. Oh ye of little faith. Actually I have spoken to several co-workers about the Lay's blueberry potato chips and we have likened them to cinnamon-raisin and blueberry bagels--cultural anculinary offenses of an unimaginable magnitude. Mango and Kiwi potato chips are hardly a surprise in such a cultural atmosphere. I try to imagine what the late Ernest M. Mickler, author of White Trash Cooking, would think, and all I can come up with is a Wonder Bread, Miracle Whip, and Mango Lay's Potato Chip sandwich.
