Snack #122- Cape Cod Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Kettle-Cooked Potato Chips

Cape Cod Sweet & Spicy Jalapeño Kettle-Cooked Potato Chips
This packaging says the flavor is New! so these should be a new spicy variation of the classic Cape Cod Jalapeño and Aged Cheddar chips (which were the inspiration for this blog, in fact). And these do not disappoint! They are bursting with flavor and somehow manage to evoke a flavor that exactly matches the description. They are certainly spicy with jalapeño flavor but also have sweet notes as well, probably from the onion and green bell pepper seasoning. They have sinus-clearing, tongue-burning heat without overpowering the other flavors in the chip, creating a very well-rounded chip. My only criticism is that the jalapeño flavor is very natural and can get a little bitter in some bites. But the crunchy, sweet, and spiciness of these chips is very satisfying and reminds me why I love testing spicy snacks.

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 7/10
Bottom Line: Highly recommended jalapeño potato chip.
