Snack #98 - Poore Brothers Three Cheese Jalapeño
This is the first of a trio of Poore Brothers' brand chips. The tag line is "intensely different," but these unfortunately were neither different nor all that spicy. They were however, pretty good, assuming you aren't looking for any heat. After eating quite a few, I vaguely felt a tickle of heat on the back of my throat, but that was it. Someone described their flavor as a Funyon in a chip, and that's really exactly what they tasted like. I happen to enjoy a Funyon now and again, but when something is called three cheese jalapeño, I expect to taste cheese and jalapeño, and I didn't get either in this intensely average chip.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: .5/10
Bottom Line: a potato Funyon
