Lay's Spicy Red Pepper
Taste test: This version of Lay's Potato Chips from Taiwan had narrow ripples and gently curving shapes, with a light yellow color in some places and some orange seasoning powder in others.
I crunched in to find a crisp crunch with some some tangy and mildly hot spices, to start. Soon after that, the intensity of the heat grew quite a bit for a strong, intense, tasty kick. The heat lingered and lingered, returning in nearly full force after big sips of juice or chocolate milk.
This flavor was certainly worthy of the word "Spicy" that was featured prominently on the bag, as it had a distinct kick that stood out from the pack of hot chips. It seemed remotely like the sichuan peppers that provided a knockout taste to some other snacks, including Explosive Potato Chips and Lay's Numb & Spicy, but not quite as striking of a flavor as those (and sichuan peppers were not among the many things that were listed in the Ingredients).
A tasty one for people who can stand the heat!
