Snack #67 - Wise New York Deli Kettle Cooked Potato Chips, Jalapeno
After experiencing the XXX throwdown on my taste buds that was Blair's Death Rain Habanero, I feel like I could handle anything the spicy chip gods throw my way. These jalapeno flavored chips, while tasty, were nothing but a tingle comparatively. They tasted less like jalapeno and more like a spicy sour cream and onion chip, which as it turns out is really delicious. Lots of onion and garlic flavor as the ingredients indicate while the jalapeno's only contribution is a nice gradual heat. My one complaint is that the chip did not live up to the crunchiness standard I have come to expect (and enjoy) in a kettle cooked chip.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 4/10
Bottom Line: Sour Cream and Onion with a kick
