I managed to escape Central America for a few days, and these are some gems I came across in my native Philadelphia.It was somewhat of a shock to have spicy snacks again after failing to discover any in Costa Rica, but I am still convinced that my taste buds can accurately rate even the spiciest of snacks.These ‘friez’ are certainly spicy.They are fairly light and crispy although a little denser than many other hot fries.The initial flavor is fake cheddar cheese, followed by a chili pepper kick.I’ll be honest, I coughed a little at the heat burning my tongue and the back of my throat simultaneously.The heat lasts for a while too, burning all flavor of cheese out of the mouth.
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!
