Snack #182- Maxi Taro Chips Hot & Spicy

Maxi Taro Chips Hot & Spicy 

These snacks are not produced internationally but the label touts ancient uses of Taro in Southeast Asia so I guess that’s why they are being sold in the Super 88 Asian grocery store.  They are mainly flavored with onion, garlic, and chili powder but the onion powder is definitely the overwhelming seasoning and it’s hard to taste the chili powder at all.  The taro creates a super light and flaky chip which isn’t as crunchy as some potato chips but definitely tastes like a lighter and possibly healthier choice.  They just fail from over seasoning and lack of heat. 

Rating on the Spice-O-Meter: 1/10
Bottom Line: Light and flaky but not very well seasoned.
