What's In Your Mouth?

Lay's recently asked us to "Do Them a Flavor" and help them choose their new flavor from the user-submitted finalists of Sriracha, Chicken and Waffles, and Cheesy Garlic Bread. Well, that got us thinking about wild chip flavors, which got us looking at chips, which had us eating a remarkable amount of chips. When we woke up from our nap/chip-coma, we decided to get all manner of insanely flavored things and have the brave and hungry staff of Maxim give us their thoughts and attempt to guess - "What's In Your Mouth?"
