1. Lay's Wavy Chocolate Covered Potato Chips (USA)

Chocolate and chips? Well, they're two things we love separately but have you ever imagined them wrapped together? Lay's went down an interesting route by creating the Wavy Chocolate Covered Potato Chips. While sure, it plays on the sweet and salty combo that so many people love, this limited-edition treat definitely stands out as weird.

2. Lay's Cappuccino (USA)

Back to back Lay's flavours! Another weird one to add to Lay's collection, they introduced a Cappuccino flavour as a part of their "Do Us A Flavour" content in the United States. It's supposed to have a rich and aromatic coffee taste, but we're just surprised this combination of coffee and chip happened in the first place.

3. Walker's Worcester Sauce (UK)

Coming all the way from the US, Walker's (basically Lay's just a different name in other countries) Worcester Sauce gives consumers a tangy, slightly spicy taste that mimics the flavour of the fermented condiment. It's got a very distinctive and savory taste that might not work for everyone, but it's certainly worth a try if you ever get the chance.

4. Pringles Pecan Pie (USA)

We never thought of mixing dessert and chips together, but Pringles ventured on the road to create a new market: the dessert chip market. With their limited edition Pecan Pie flavour, these chips were designed to capture the sweet, nutty, and buttery taste of a classic pecan pie. It's one flavour you'll either love or hate.

While it's considered a "weird" flavour to those outside of Canada, don't knock it till you try it!

14. Lay's Cucumber (China)

The fact that cucumbers don't have much of a taste at all makes this one puzzling flavour we're not too sure why Lay's decided to make. Maybe they were going for something refreshing? Supposed to give consumers a fresh and clean taste, this is one you'll just have to try to know how it is.

15. Koikeya Strong Potato Wasabi Flavor (Japan)

Wasabi flavoured chips? We're not sure if we're on board for this one. While it's a great complement to sushi, the sharp and distinctively pungent taste of this Japanese horseradish isn't something we'd imagine would go great in a snack. but who knows - try it and see!
