You never forget the worst things you've tasted.


Potato chips are a universally loved snack, and everyone has a favorite brand or flavor. Sometimes, potato chip companies think up a new flavor for the masses to enjoy. New things can be exciting, and customers flock to anything "limited edition" or brand new on the shelves. But with newness comes risk, and that new flavor can end up being the worst you've ever had.

Redditor u/eloncrustpizza asked people "What's the worst potato chip flavor you've ever tasted?" and many were able to recount times that their favorite snack disappointed them.

10. Leave it as a pastry

"Lays Cinnamon Roll. WHY!?

It tasted nothing like a cinnamon roll and was just a confusing experience all around."

9. Pure hatred

"Lays had a Mango Salsa one that tasted like salt, sugar and hatred."

8. Almost tartar sauce flavor

"In Finland there is a brand called Taffel and one of their chips has this flavor of pickles and mayonnaise. Needles to say It was the worst flavor I had ever tasted."

7. Off brands have no business doing this

"An off brand attempt at 'ketchup'. It took me a while to figure it out - it tasted like gasoline smells."

5. Some would say brussels sprouts are the worst vegetable

"Brussels sprout flavour. I really like sprouts when they are cooked well, but I tried the crisps at Christmas and couldn't even finish one of them."

4. Does Lays still have the "Do Us a Flavor" contest?

Giphy

"Lays Chicken and Waffle. The 'maple' smell is overwhelming and they taste vile."

3. Totally missed the nuance of wasabi

"Wasabi dorritos, made my eyes water and my nose burn, no true flavour just spice and pain."

2. They can't compare to a real cappuccino

"Does anyone else remember the Lays cappuccino chips? that gets my vote"

1. They just tasted like vomit

"The Lays Limon. It tastes like someone drank Limeade then threw it up in your mouth."

Hilarious moments are blind to timing. They seem to strike at the absolute worst times, when laughing would be completely inappropriate.

Working with dogs is a field like few others. Though a job at a veterinary clinic, animal shelter, or training class may have its moments of tragedy and frustration, the unique hilarity that dogs bring is a real treat.

We're all aware television shows are fake and, heck, even the ones pretending to be real have a certain level of fabrication permeating throughout. That's not why we watch, though, we watch because we want to be invested into believing in a show's characters and their journeys. So when a character is mysteriously removed from a show with zero explanation it can leave a bad taste in our mouths that never goes away.

There's something quite wonderful about finding a loophole and taking advantage of it... especially when you're broke. (Trust me, it could mean the difference between surviving and well, not.)

When I was really poor, for example, I used to go to a Burger King to get cheap burgers with what little money I had. The food was filling and helped tide me over. I eventually found a glitch on the app that allowed me to add two extra burgers to my order. Trust me, it saved me on my worst days. (As you can imagine, I am really sick of fast food now that I'm much more financially stable.)

After Redditor Thym3Travr asked the online community, "What loophole did you exploit mercilessly?" people shared their stories.
