Frito-Lay Habanero Pepper Rings

Taste test: These rings had a fairly bright orange color with some small darker spots throughout. Shapewise, they were similar to Funyuns or other onion rings.

Upon biting in, there was a vastly different taste: a very tasty cheese flavor mixed with an intense hit of habanero. Once the habanero kicked in, it was hard to notice anything else. Even one small bite of one ring had enough heat to really light the mouth on fire. It you can't stand the heat, you won't want to get near these rings, but if you like hot peppers, this is a great snack to try.
