Taste test: These potato chips had wiggly shapes and various shades of yellow and orange on their surfaces, with many folded-over chips and bubbles embedded inside. The promise of intense heat from a company that has produced a number of other tasty flavors (including Voodoo Gumbo) had us very eager to try them.
We crunched in to find a nice crisp crunch and a tasty, barbecue-like flavor, but there was really no heat at all initially, let alone a heat that would make anyone's hair stand on end. Some heat (but not a lot) did arrive in the aftertaste, and the mix of that with the BBQ taste was very nice. But it was still a major mismatch from our expectations.
Aroma: Kind of a hot sauce smell, but only slightly hot.
