When Seen: circa 2009
In a Bite: As reported to us by our trusted taster, “Utterly dreadful. Ate one, cringed, and threw the bag away.”
In a Haiku: Careful Violet! Willy Wonka’s in China. This time chips, not gum.
Origin Story: As the Great Recession wreaked havoc on the global economy, the team at the Lay’s flavor department looked for a radical new flavor that would sound so utterly unappealing that people would feel compelled to try it for themselves, just like poor, little Violet Beauregarde… and hence Blueberry flavor chips were born!
