Fritos Tapatío Flavored Corn Snacks
This is the second free snack sample sent to us by the nice people at Frito-Lay. These Fritos are a super curly variety with a basic hot sauce flavoring. They are light flaky corn chips but denser than the standard Frito because of the extra curliness. The flavor on these isn’t as complex as the Ruffles and doesn’t quite taste like hot sauce but more like straight pepper heat. They really taste mostly like a normal Frito until you swallow and then it feels like you just swallowed a pile of dried pepper seeds and has the same face-warming burn as the other Tapatío snacks. It does allow you to really taste the corn flavor of the Fritos which is nice but the heat is dry and not as pleasant as it could be.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 6/10
Bottom Line: Standard Fritos with a burny finish.
