Takis Xtra Hot
Taste test: This special flavor of Takis rolled-up tortilla chips had an intense red color, a similar look to the Fuego flavor, except it was darker and less bright shade of red. With the "Xtra Hot" name on the bag, I was expecting something even hotter than the Fuego flavor (which was quite hot).
That's not what happened here; they were indeed hot, and quite hot, but probably a bit less hot than Fuego. The flavor was loaded with intense chili and lime, quite a kick of hot flavor, plus an excellent crunch. Our snackers enjoyed the taste and heat.
Much like Fuego, any incidental contact with these Takis left seasoning powder all over the hands — not just on the fingertips that actually held the snacks. I saw some of the red stuff on my knuckles and seriously wondered whether I'd cut myself until I realized what it was.
