I would like to have been in the space when a advertising expert pitched the plan of digging up dirt from NFL stadiums, mixing it into fields in Texas, and rising potatoes to make confined-version bags of workforce-unique Lay’s potato chips. Due to the fact it can be kinda good.

Lay’s Golden Grounds chips go by way of a normal farming and chip-making process, with the added gimmick of being aware of the potatoes in the bag touched soil that your favored gamers almost certainly ran throughout. Can you flavor the cleats and sweat? Not likely. These chips are extra about mystique than the terroir of NFL stadiums. 

Lay’s declared the chips earlier this week, expressing restricted-version bags representing 29 groups will be offered for supporters by a Twitter sweepstakes. It involves admirers to produce tweets using a sequence of hashtags. Whole policies are out there on the Lay’s Golden Grounds web web page.

But hold out, you say, there are 32 groups in the NFL, so why only 29 various chips? Sorry, Browns, Bengals and Broncos supporters: no filth-chips for you. I you should not know why, but I have attained out to Frito-Lay to talk to.

A earning-of video goes into some details of the creation procedure. You are going to be glad to know that grime from rival groups was held separated in the potato industry. That indicates Chicago Bears Soldier Discipline chips won’t be besmirched by Environmentally friendly Bay Packers Lambeau Discipline soil. 

Frito-Lay brought on soccer legend Jerry Rice as the spokesperson for the chips. He described the San Francisco 49ers treats as tasting like “three Super Bowl wins, 22,895 yards, 1,549 receptions, 208 touchdowns and 13 Professional Bowls.” 

I am guessing the Chicago Bears chips would flavor like the fading refrains of The Tremendous Bowl Shuffle and the ghosts of Mike Ditka’s scorching Polish sausages. Delightful.
