I'm doubting they'll just take normal lays chips and throw chocolate on them. They'll likely make a special batch of chips and coat them. I'll probably buy some to try them, usually don't eat chips too much.

My lord, just... no.

 

Salt and sugar don't mix. AT ALL. Proof: try eating a burger made up of two Krispy Kreme donuts and tell me with a straight face that the mix of oily salt and sweet tastes good.

I'd argue that a hamburger and a potato chip are vastly different in both taste and texture.

That's known as a Luther Burger, which is attributed to being created by the late singer Luther Vandross. Mulligan's in Decatur, Georgia was the first to serve them. Now Krispy Kreme and a few other stores sell them - a marketing success and only ~1,500 calories each.

Worse enough those flavored Lays they had months ago. I seem to recall waffles flavor or something like that.

 

Chicken and waffles. I found them quite nasty, but the cheesy garlic bread ones were pretty good.

If I see them, I might pick up a bag to try them. However I have very low expectations.

I thought it was chicken and waffles or waffles and syrup, sounds yucky though. Didn't have the garlic bread ones, sadly.

I totally thought that was just a random grouping of foods. I was actually laughing at your naming it the "Luther Burger" until I realized that you might not be joking. I'm astounded that's a real thing.

 

BTW, I'm pretty sure Elvis came up with chocolate potato chips. Yeah, it was definitely Elvis, or maybe Jessica Simpson :) /s
