Flavor: Caribbean Onion & Balsamic Vinegar
Country: South Africa
When Seen: October 2017
In a Bite: Kind of like your standard salt and vinegar but with a pinch of spice and onion flavor.
In a Haiku: Tart and salty chip. Throwing shade on PDO. It’s the best -ean.
Origin Story: Never a standout geography student, the employee in the Lay’s flavor department responsible for this concoction mixed up their seas, incorrectly pegging balsamic vinegar as originating in the Caribbean. For those readers who are similarly geography challenged, in case you’re curious, the correct answer is the Mediterranean.
