These are definitely the spiciest snack we’ve had in Costa Rica, but that is not saying much at all.They are typical Pringles, crispy in that dried, mashed potato chips way.The flavor is definitely jalapeño and although it is somewhat artificial, it tastes pretty authentic.The spice hits you right away, but fades away quickly and doesn’t build up over time.The flavor is a little bit sweet underneath the jalapeño flavor, like tomatoes and onions, a little bit of a salsa flavor.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 2.5/10
Bottom Line: Spicy snacks in Costa Rica all come from the U.S.
We wish to provide a comprehensive exploration of the wide, wonderful world of the spicy snack. The spicy snack comes in a variety of forms, from chips to crunchies to Chex Mix. We intend to sample each and every form of spicy snack to determine the individual strengths and weaknesses of every flavorful sack. Not for the faint of palate. Extreme gastronomists only!
