Snack #73 - Stacy's Hot & Spicy Pita Chips
When walking through the supermarket words like "hot & spicy" printed on a bag of snacks immediately catch my attention. I was pretty excited about this most recent spicy snack - spicy and healthy? - best of both worlds. And I was only partially let down. As pita chips, they deliver a nice crunch and are good for dipping into whatever you might fancy. On the downside, there was not a whole lot of flavor. They definitely packed some nice heat, walking the fine line between spicy and painful, but beyond that these pita chips pretty much tasted like chili powder. Occasionally I got a hint of lemon, a weird, but welcome addition to this otherwise sort of boring snack.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 5/10
Bottom Line: You're better off dipping plain pita chips in salsa.
