Snack #156- Herr’s Hot Sauce Flavored Potato Chips

Herr’s Hot Sauce Flavored Potato Chips

These wide ruffle potato chips are pretty basic in texture and crunch level but the Texas Pete hot sauce adds a definite spicy dimension to their flavor.  The initial flavor is very vinegary but the heat quickly builds and is felt on the back of the tongue and in the throat for a while after eating them.  The ridged texture really allows the hot sauce flavoring to cover the chips although some chips seem to have gotten flavoring only on one side.  Overall these are a nice crunchy potato chip and they have a really tasty hot sauce seasoning.  Definitely a step up from the typical overly sweet and vinegary hot sauce chips and they are pretty spicy too!

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 6/10
Bottom Line: Very good hot sauce potato chips.
