The choices are Southern Biscuits and Gravy, New York Reuben, Greektown Gyro, and West Coast Truffle Fries. For the first time I'm look forward to trying all four.

What's a west coast truffle?

http://www.dousaflavor.com/

Looks like truffle got the Wavy slot and gyro got the Kettle Cooked slot.

I'm uneasy about the gyro one but I bet I like all four. I will try to hold off predicting a winner until I taste 'em.

I guess I am in the minority. None of these sound like appealing potato chip flavors. A Reuben? A gyro? I am going to pass.

Haven't seen any of them in person yet, but here's early word on the Gyro flavor:





Everything is awesome.

Anyone want to work out a trade? I'll take a bag of each in exchange for a four-pack of the Canadian flavours* when they come out in August. (Do you guys get them in small bags too, or just the bigger ones?)

*bear in mind that two years ago, one of the Canadian flavours was Maple Moose and it remains the worst thing that's ever been in my mouth

In the past it's only been 9-13oz bags (I forget the exact size) but I probably owe you a package anyway. I didn't see them in the store yesterday but Old Dutch NACHO BITES (olddutchfoods.com) were $1.99 which is like half price! So I bought a bag.

The entire quartet from two years ago was positively disgusting. We have had nothing up here even close to the quality of the wasabi, garlic cheese bread, and a couple of other US concoctions. When bacon poutine is a let down, it's time to find new flavour scientists.

Apparently you can order all four from Amazon (The W at Amazon). 20 2.75-oz bags for $20. I may go this route, as it's nearly impossible to find all of the flavors here locally. Last year all we had for the longest time was Cappucino.

My local Walmart has them. I picked up Southern Biscuits and Gravy.

You MIGHT guess that's what it was if you didn't know and tried them blindly, but the big surprise is they're pretty tasty anyway. I've eaten like half the bag this morning.

Disclaimer: I love all four reference foods.

New York Reuben tastes exactly as advertised, and are DELICIOUS.

Greektown Gyro tastes exactly as advertised, and are DISGUSTING. Dear Lord. Should've just went with straight tzatziki sauce.

Southern Biscuits and Gravy has a very subtle flavor. I wouldn't be able to guess it on a blind taste test, but yes, they are tasty.

West Coast Truffle Fries are the most interesting. If you smelled them before you tasted them, you would expect an overwhelming flavor. And if you eat overwhelmingly-flavored truffle fries, you regret it immediately. But, pleasantly, the flavor of these chips is just right.

I got the American chips in Minot, ND this past weekend, and the office taste test is this afternoon.

Meanwhile, the Canadian flavours have been announced:
- Cowboy BBQ Beans (wavy)
- Butter Chicken (regular)
- Montréal Smoked Meat (regular)
- PEI Scalloped Potatoes (regular)

No kettle chips? Huh.

The scalloped potato and BBQ bean chips sound boring. OMG yay cheese/barbecue, whatever. And Old Dutch already makes a Montréal Smoked Meat chip (and it rules, BTW). But butter chicken has serious potential.

Okay, those all sound better than the American alternatives. I watched the Grantland podcast taste them all the other day and it convinced me to try none of them despite them staring me in the face every day at Subway.

Consensus top pick on our floor was Truffle Fries but everything got mixed reviews. I thought Biscuits & Gravy was best. Gyro nearly made my boss throw up.

I also brought Wasabi & Ginger (I hated these so so so much but that's how I feel about wasabi) and Lays aged cheddar and black pepper (just because I thought it looked good). The cheddar/pepper chips were the best of the bunch, IMO.

- PEI Scalloped Potatoes (regular)
Very good, but yeah, they're just cheesy chips. But very good ones. Possibly my favourites of the bunch.

- Butter Chicken (regular)
They nailed the flavour. Has a hint of sweetness that is present in butter chicken sauce. I really wanted them to just be Tandoori Sizzler Doritos and they're not

- Cowboy BBQ Beans (wavy)
They nailed the taste of pork & beans - they're not like straight BBQ chips as I was expecting.

- Montréal Smoked Meat (regular)
The weakest of the four. Still not bad but not as good as the Old Dutch version.

All in all, the worst of these was still better than the best of the American four.

You're nuts! This is your winner! The black pepper, the yellow mustard, the smokey meatiness, it's ALL there.

Butter chicken is a close second, the other two are a wash (even though they hit the flavor profiles to a degree, they just aren't doing it for me like the first two).

So I really liked the Biscuits and Gravy ones. Loved the Reuben ones but I also love rye bread too. Didn't care for the Gyro ones and thought the Truffle Fries were ok but I don't really have a reference point for those.

What is butter chicken? Even living in BC, I have no idea what that is.

Indian dish. Chunks of chicken breast in a creamy spicy tomato-based sauce. I am probably describing this horribly. The best Indian food I have ever had was in Vancouver so I recommend you seek it out.

I still liked them! I just thought that Old Dutch did the same thing, only better.
