Honchos Peach Habanero

Buy tortilla chips on Amazon

Taste test: These chips looked a lot like Doritos, with similar isosceles triangular shapes and surface textures. The color was generally a light yellow/orange, a bit more uniform in color than most Doritos, where the seasoning is a different color than the underlying chip, but the dark spots that are typical of non-Doritos tortilla chips were more noticeable in these than Doritos.

I crunched in to find a fairly soft crunch, without the excellent crispness that Doritos have, so definitely a different texture. The initial taste did have a hint of peach, and after that there was just the slightest hint of heat. There was a bit more heat in the aftertaste, but it was far from the expected habanero level. Nonetheless, it was a nice mix of tastes. The aftertaste stayed at a low heat level for a while and left me with a really good feeling. Chips were in good condition and hadn't appeared to settle, but the bag was filled just about halfway.

Smell test: Pretty mild, no heat or anything. Not peachy.
