For some reason, I like snacking on artificially formed potato crisps. Yep, that’s right. Is it not odd that they are called crisps instead of chips? I suppose calling them potato chips is a crime that would get you arrested by the mattress tag police.
At any rate, I was at the supermarket the other day and saw these two brands side by side. Aside from the fact that I was hungry, which in itself is a huge mistake when you visit a supermarket, I was also curious as to which of these was the better chip. I bought way too many chips in general, but I did make sure to buy a couple from each brand.
Here’s my official opinion…Lay’s Stax wins hands down. The chips are crunchier and drier, slightly thicker, and appear to maintain much more structural integrity overall. More importantly, they seem to be dusted with some sort of addictive substance which I imagine to be produced in the forests of Columbia. The Pringles are OK, but seem slightly soggier, thinner, and more broken apart in the packaging.
Feel free to take the Crispy Challenge yourself, if you dare!
