Taste test: The marketing folks at Tostitos made kind of a big deal of it when they introduced their Cantina chips (in Traditional and Thin & Crispy versions) a few years back. Both were OK, but unworthy of any sort of big deal among the many varieties of Tostitos. This flavor, however, was a big deal.
The chips had a good helping of seasoning on them, with an otherwise similar look to the Thin & Crispy version. We crunched in to find a nice light texture with good crispness, a lot like a fresh restaurant chip, but also with some delicious spicy hot seasoning. The mix of flavor and texture was outstanding. These might have been the the best flavored tortilla chips ever.
The real question here was why Tostitos launched the Cantina line with those other two kinds and not this one.
