Taste test: These Fritos had a very nearly uniform dark red color, much redder than the Fritos pictured on the bag.
Despite the uniform redness, the level of heat varied from one Frito to the next, with some just moderately hot, and others hot enough to make the mouth water and maybe choke up a bit. They were pretty good, though definitely less tasty than some hot chips, and less hot than some.
Smell test: Different from regular Fritos, as you could smell some hot sauce.
From the package: “When your taste buds want to feel the burn, a regular chip just isn't going to cut it. You need something that'll reach out and bite you back. Fritos® Flamin' Hot® Flavor Corn Chips combine the classic corn taste witha hearty, all-American fiery crunch. Right out of the bag, baked into a Fritos Chili Pie® or with your favorite dip ... Nothing Satisfies Like Fritos® brand.”
