Snack #86 - Fritos Brand McGraw's Spicy Jalapeño

Fritos Brand McGraw's Spicy Jalapeño

Tim McGraw has a flavor??? And apparently he thinks he's pretty spicy. As a less-than-avid country music fan (read: I hate country music), I'm not sure if it's a common occurrence to have country music singers brand their own flavor of chips, but I thought it was pretty weird. Either way, the man can make a Frito. His sense of spiciness may be a little off though. These had the nice corn taste of a Frito with a sour cream and onion-type flavor. There was just the faintest bit of heat if I really concentrated, but mostly just sour cream and onion.

Also, I realized that this is one of many "jalapeño" flavored chips that winds up as a sour cream and onion knock-off...what gives? Let me know if you have any idea, because I missed the memo where sour cream and onion became synonymous with spicy.

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 1/10

Bottom Line: Tim McGraw: hot music (??), mild chips.
