GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Lay's Kettle Cooked Reduced Fat.
Just about indistinguishable from their full-fat counterparts—the only thing missing was the grease on our hands after we raided the bag. Great crunch, courtesy of a thick-cut; super-bright salinity that melts away to soft, true potato flavor.
TASTE TEST AWARD: Ruffles Reduced Fat.
Perfect for the thickest, sloppiest dip. Stays crunchier longer out of the bag than similar ridged potato chips.
TASTE TEST AWARD: Cape Cod Kettle Cooked Reduced Fat.
Supercrunchy with lots of character—all the twists, bubbles, and folds say "homemade," not "factory."
