Our review pack had a mix of uneven chips. Some were broken, while some were intact. These have a typical Lay’s-style serrated design. These have a red tone.

Main Ingredients 

The primary ingredients are – potato and edible veg oil (palmolein, rice bran oil). 

The seasoning ingredients include – seasoning (maltodextrin, spices, and condiments, sugar, iodized salt, acidity regulator (330), and dehydrated vegetables (beetroot powder). Additionally, it also has flavor (natural flavoring substances), butter, milk powder, anticaking agent (551), and flavor enhancer (627 and 631). 

Note – **contains onion and garlic. 

The source of fat used includes both palmolein and rice bran oil. While we appreciate the use of rice bran oil, the presence of palmolein oil replaced with a better source of fat. Rice bran oil is extracted from rice bran (external layer of the rice grain). As compared to palmolein oil it is a relatively healthier choice to opt for since it contains good fats.

The calories per 100 gm are 538 kcal. 


As soon as we tasted the chips the flavor of chili did not hit us. But it grows gradually and spreads throughout. It is followed by a slight tang. The level of salt is just right. No complaints there. 

We also appreciate the quality of the potato used. A good thing was that the taste of the potato was consistent and uniform throughout the pack. No oily bits too.


Spectacular! Everything the crunch, texture, and crispness were just right. As we took a bite, the sound was prominent.
