Cola is actually an amazing meat tenderizer—folks in my family have poured a can of Coke on the Christmas ham for years. Apparently in China, it’s common practice to pour it on chicken and cook it out in a stir-fry, leaving a sweet, tangy flavor. As far as I know, I have never eaten cola chicken (though sometimes in Chinatown, I just point at things, so I suppose it’s possible), but this new Lay’s potato chip flavor attempts to capture the magic. Unfortunately, they don’t seem to be available in the U.S. (greatest country in the world, my ass).
