Flavor: Mala Barbecue
When Seen: March 2020
In a Bite: We’re told it’s a journey from savory and meaty to bright and acidic, with an ever increasing burn chasing not far behind. Complexity in a bite!
In a Haiku: Is that barbecue? I can’t quite tell anymore, since my tongue turned off.
Origin Story: Mala is the Thai name for the Sichuan peppercorns originally featured in this flavor from China. What better way to celebrate Lay’s 25th anniversary in Thailand than by offering up this tongue numbing flavor to their fans. You’re welcome!
