Snack #7- Cape Cod Jalapeno and Aged Cheddar Old Fashioned Kettle-Cooked Potato Chips
Cape Cod Jalapeno and Aged Cheddar Old Fashioned Kettle-Cooked Potato Chips
This chip initially has a medium jalapeno flavor, which is subsequently followed by the cheese flavor. It is very interesting that the pepper flavor comes through before the cheddar flavor, because usually it seems that the spice comes after the other flavors in the mix. The afterburn is not too hot, but there is a slow accumulating burn, especially when an entire bag is eaten in one sitting. This has happened on multiple occasions, and they are especially deadly when the entire bag is consumed while walking two blocks home after a night at the bar. Just a little warning for late night chip connoisseurs everywhere (and if you have not experienced the late night spicy chip- you are missing out and we recommend it highly). The texture is lighter and crispier than other kettle chips; they are thinner and the crunch is softer. The cheddar flavor is appetizing and the slight heat is subtle enough not to overpower the cheese flavor.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 5.5
Bottom Line: Overall a good combination of cheese and jalapeno.
