Snack #92- Alexia Onion Strips Jalapeño Onion Snacks

Alexia Onion Strips Jalapeño Onion Snacks

Ahh yes, another deceiving package; this one almost seems like a complete lie. It claims that there are 18 pieces to a serving and 4.5 servings to a bag. Upon opening the bag it appears that there could possibly be 40 pieces inside, so I decide to count the pieces. Total: 55 onion strips. Where are the other 26? Blatant lies.

Again, packaging aside, these are…interesting snacks. They are almost like onion rings that have been fried to just the barest crisp; they even have a fried onion strip with a crispy outer shell. And they are SPICY. They have an intense jalapeño flavor which is probably heightened by the lack of flavor in the crispy onion coating. The interplay between the sweet onion strip on the inside and the hot outer coating makes a pretty tasty snack overall. The onion flavor is completely natural and the jalapeño flavor is distinctly authentic and these snacks really make me crave onion rings with a spicy dipping sauce.

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 7/10
Bottom Line: Very natural onion and jalapeño snack.
