Guilty Pleasures

Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" Taste Test: Sriracha, Cheesy Garlic Bread or Chicken & Waffles?

Though one could argue that picnics and grilling are year-round activities for Phoenicians, the urge to grill is strongest in spring and summer. I don't know about you, but outdoor feasting isn't complete for me without a big bowl of chips. I normally circumvent the chip aisle at the grocery store (I get more than enough guilty pleasure food through writing this column, thank you very much), but a recent trip down one showed me something: Holy crap, there are a lot of different chip flavors out there. Apparently, Frito-Lay feels the need to diversify its offerings in order to snag as much market share as possible.
