Lay's Stax Potato Ships

stax2.jpgThese were on sale at Wal-Mart, so my wife bought them. I have tried them, different varieties, several times. Each and every time, without fail, I always have to ask myself: Why? Why try to get the Pringles taste and experience from something other than Pringles? I do not care for the consistency – they always seem to be stale. Perhaps this speaks of crispness rather than consistency, but they just seem to lack any spark. The different flavors always strike me as just missing the mark. I really like potato chips, in almost any form, but these just do not hit the spot the way a chip should. The bottom line with these is “If you want Pringles, get Pringles.”

Posted by: Buddy at September 26, 2005 9:01 PM

To me, Pringles taste like you're trying to keep up a high fiber diet by eating cardboard shavings that are sometimes cheese flavored- or if you want to go crazy, pizza-and they get stuck in your throat , too. BETTER MAID ROCKS!!

Amazing. The reviewer said "If you want Pringles..." If you don't like Pringles, than his review does not really apply to you, other than if you do not like Pringles these will CERTAINLY suck!

ure really a retard, aren't you

Posted by: lindsay at September 27, 2005 4:43 PM

I guess that Phantom guy must have had a bad experience with a Pringles can. I'll leave it up to everyone's imagination as to exactly how.

But my guess involves opening the closed end, a gerbil and some string..... Ha!

Posted by: Mr Chips at September 27, 2005 5:35 PM

First of all, im not a guy, im a girl. And i haven't had a bade experience with Pringles, least of which involving a gerbil.

Forever not liking pringles!

Every time on of those stupid Lay's Stax commercials come on, I turn the channel. Every time! What a stupid, lame commercial. I refuse to buy ANYTHING of Lay's as long as that commercial is on the tube.

though i think pringles are better then these, muncho's still holds a place in my heart as the #1 potatoe crisp

Posted by: hunter at December 30, 2005 9:33 AM

While I prefer Pringles, I've been diagnosed with Celiac disease. No gluten == no wheat, barley, or rye == no Pringles. The Lays Stax are perfectly safe (no wheat), and thus a decent option.

Well, barring Muncho's, which kick the stuffing out of both Pringles AND Stax.

Posted by: at December 31, 2005 11:38 PM

i think lays stax are waaaay better.. i still like pringles but yeah

Up here in Canada Pringles are called "chips" not "crisps". But they are way too crispy to be called chips in my opinion. Pringles taste like crackers and they never consistant with the amount of ketchup flavoring on the chips. Stax are the new number one snack in Canada! Stax taste way better than pringles do and I have been eating Pringles for too many years. Salt and vinager Stax are the best! Go and try some right now! Stax taste way better than Pringles!

Posted by: StAx LoVeR at February 25, 2007 9:19 PM

Stax is just copying Pringles. They are jealous that Pringles had been a sucssesful product. Lay's has lots of products but it doesn't seem that they're content with them. They maybe studied all different kinds of chips from different brands. They noticed that a lot of people buy Pringles and seem to enjoy them so maybe they thought "Why not copy Pringles?" +These are all just my opinions, it wouldn't be served as a fact+

Posted by: Narutogirl at May 17, 2007 3:28 PM

Narutogirl; sorry to break it to you; but that's the way of the world. People emulate successful products all.the.time. It's not a matter of jealousy, it's wanting to make more $$$ Look at all of the generic rip-offs sitting on the grocer's shelves (which I'm thankful for, because they taste the same but are cheaper).

Anywhoo; I love Pringles, but I like the Staxx (sans name *shudder*) because they're thicker and you get less broken chips per can.

I've just been letting everything wash over me recently. So it goes. What can I say?

I've just been letting everything pass me by. Shrug. Basically not much notable going on lately.

My mind is like a fog. Oh well. My life's been really dull today. Eh. Today was a total loss. I've more or less been doing nothing , but I guess it doesn't bother me.
