So it was requested that I rate some spicy plantain chips, which are a favorite snack in
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 2/10
Bottom Line: Stale and old but good potential.
Rumba Fajitas Rancheras Tortilla Chips
These are supposed to taste like meat fajitas, which sounds so disgusting. The ingredients include meat flavoring and sausage flavoring, in addition to jalapeño and hot pepper seasonings. They smell and taste somewhat like jalapeno, but they also have an undeniable flavor of ‘meat’ which is really unappealing. They are not spicy beyond the flavor of jalapeño and were slightly stale out of the bag. The chip itself is fairly thick for a tortilla chip.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 0.5/10
Bottom Line: These would get a high rating on a Disgust-O-Meter.
Finally, a snack that isn’t lying about its heat! These are called hot peanuts, and that is pretty much exactly what the sensation is when they are eaten. They are very salty but also have a strong flavor of chili pepper. The flavor is almost bitter, not like a seasoning so much as straight up pepper. It leaves a burning sensation in the mouth that is unlike any other snack that claims to have spice in
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 3/10
Bottom Line: Salty, pleasantly chili flavored.
These are definitely the spiciest snack we’ve had in
