Snack #91- Alexia Waffle Fries Hot Pepper Potato Snacks

Alexia Waffle Fries Hot Pepper Potato Snacks

First I would like to say that the packaging on these is a sham. At least 2/3 of this bag is just air…which sucks. That being said, these chips are pretty awesome. They are as thick as actual waffle fries and somehow taste just like them, more like freshly fried potatoes than off-the-shelf bagged chips. Because they are basically extra deep fried waffle fries, they end up being crunchier than any potato chip I’ve ever had, which is a new and fun texture experience. The flavor is mostly waffle fry with an extra salty kick and a medium spicy burst of flavor. The ingredients include habañero and jalapeño peppers and the combination comes through well although they are not too hot. The onion and garlic flavors are also present and contribute to a tasty chip, although the cheese flavor claimed in the ingredients is not evident. Overall they are a highly enjoyable snack and it’s unfortunate that there aren’t more to enjoy in the wimpy bag.

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 4/10
Bottom Line: Super crispy!
