Newest trend, bizarre flavored Potato chips. Why mess with a good thing?

I have started to see some new and quite bizarre flavors of chips in the grocery store lately, including "Chicken and Waffles" and "Cheeseburger"
I have to start by asking myself, WHY? WHat is so wrong with the perfection that is a lightly salted deep fried sliver of a spud? I love potato chips, and admit they are a vice of mine, but I have to say, I cannot stand these new trends in flavor. Give me a bag of kettle cooked lightly salted crisps and I am in junk food heaven (especially with a good glass of red wine while perusing the internet) Has anyone else seen or tried these abominations? I tried a cheeseburger Pringle and a Chicken and Waffle Lays, and I have to say both were disgusting. The Pringles tasted like overly salted chemical tasting dried out crusts of what might be a cheeseburger to the palate of a toddler or drunken college student, but to me it was just horrible, and one taste was enough to leave me unwilling to eat a cheeseburger for a while. The Lays tasted like a salted maple syrup chip, no hint of chicken in these chips. Has anyone else dared to try some of the more off putting and bizarre flavors?
