I've been munching on these chips for years and let me tell you, Lay's is the king of potato chips with their endless variety. With extreme bias in full force, I gathered them all and ranked them in order of worst to best. Here's my take on their flavors, ranked from "meh" to "mouthwatering":

24. Original Limón

Starting at the bottom, Original Limón is like that unexpected guest at a party – a bit surprising, but kind of refreshing? It’s tangy, a bit sour, but in a good way. It’s a nice change from the common fla vors.

23. Original Chile Limón

Now, add some spice to that tang with Original Chile Limón. It’s like Limón’s feisty sibling. If you like little heat with some tang then this is your go-to. But be warned, it's not for the faint-hearted.

22. Wavy Ranch

Wavy Ranch is like that reliable friend – always good to have around. It's creamy, herby, and has a garlic kick.

21. Flamin’ Hot

Flamin' Hot is for those who live on the edge. It's bold, it's fiery, and not for the spice-averse. Seriously, it’s hot!
