Snack #65 - Blair's Death Habanero Kettle Cooked Potato Chips

Holy Sh*t!! These are without a doubt the hottest chips I have ever tasted. The unassuming smell upon open the bag had me fooled, but the second one of those bad boys hit my tongue it was game over. Stupidly, I tried a few more, thinking I needed to figure out the "flavor." The flavor is fire. The bag says XXX Hot, which apparently means cough-inducing, sinus-clearing, eye-watering hot. I literally drank an entire bottle of water and ate several pieces of cheese in a futile attempt to put out the fire. I worry I will never taste again.

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 11/10

Bottom Line: for masochists only, and even then, have some milk handy

** I just tried these chips again (Why, I don't know...I'm just so dedicated to the cause) and just before I ran to the fridge for more dairy I got a hint of smokey flavor, lending further credence to the phrase "where there's smoke, there's fire."
