… along with seven other hometown favorites.

Have you ever been eating some classic Maryland Chesapeake Bay Crabs and wished your crab was fried and in potato form? Yeah, me neither. But just in case, Lay’s wants to make sure we’re covered with their new Chesapeake Bay Crab Spice-flavored chips.

Actually, Lay’s recently announced eight new chip flavors inspired by hometown favorites in their “Tastes of America” lineup, and Maryland’s very own Chesapeake Bay Crabs were just one of the inspirations. Each flavor is inspired by a local flavor in an American hometown. As Lay’s says, “You’ll get a taste of America in every bite!”

The eight flavors are:

Cajun Spice

“Inspired by the flavors of the Gulf Coast, here’s a taste of garlic, paprika, onion, and oregano. Laissez les bon temps rouler!”

Chesapeake Bay Crab Spice

“Inspired by crab shacks along the Atlantic, here’s a taste of the Bay with custom-blended spices ready to savor. Let’s get crackin’!”

Chile Con Queso

“Inspired by legendary Tex-Mex of the Southwest, here’s a taste of velvety cheddar queso with a dash of spice. Who even needs guac?”

Deep Dish Pizza

“Inspired by the Giordano’s pizza recipe made famous in the Midwest, here’s a taste of their iconic stuffed deep-dish pizza. Legendary cheese pull, anyone?”

Fried Pickles with Ranch

“Inspired by a deep-fried favorite at Midwest state fairs, get a taste of fried pickles with ranch. Who’s ready for a ride on the Ferris wheel?”

New England Lobster Roll

“Inspired by lobster shacks of the Northeast, here’s a taste of fresh lobster served on a buttery grilled roll. It’s wicked good!”

Pimento Cheese

“Inspired by Sunday socials and Southern charm, here’s a taste of creamy sharp cheddar with a hint of cayenne pepper. Y’all are so welcome.”

Thai Sweet Chili

“Inspired by the food truck scene of the Pacific Northwest, get a taste of Thai sweet chili sauce with a hint of heat. Food lovers rejoice!”

 

Also returning to store shelves for a limited time are the following popular Lay’s flavors: Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Popper, Fried Green Tomatoes, Ketchup, and West Coast Truffle Fries.
