Snack #48: Hot Potatoes' Spicy Bloody Mary Potato Chips
I had high hopes for these chips. Clever packaging, interesting flavor idea, but ultimately was a little disappointed. Instead of a spicy kick of Bloody Mary as promised, I got little more than a smoky tomato flavor with little or no discernible heat. In fact, I was pretty grossed out by the flavor at first. It grew on me after a while, but I really had to work at it. The same company had other flavors like Margarita which, while not spicy, sounded exciting, but after the Bloody Mary debacle, I think I'll hold off on testing those out.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 0/10
Bottom Line: If you're looking for a Bloody Mary drink one and eat a bag of chips later.
