Snack #166 - Sun Chips Jalapeño Jack
A new flavor from Sun Chips: Jalapeño Jack. They describe the chip as "just the right balance of tongue-tingling jalapeño with the creamy smooth taste of Monterey Jack Cheese" and get it about 50% right. Maybe it's just me, but I imagine most of you spicy chips fans will agree, a little more "tongue-tingling" would have really improved these chips. You're first hit with a rather subtle cheese flavor - subtle even though the flavor reminded me a lot of the cheese powder of white cheddar mac and cheese. Then, a few chips in you get the "tingle," but it never really gets beyond that, no matter how many chips you eat.
Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 1/10
Bottom Line: tasty and tingly
