Snacks Kettle Brand Jalapeno Potato Chips

Kettle Brand Jalapeno Potato Chips are some of the best jalapeno chips available in stores. With that nice large red "Hot" pepper on the front of the package, I was expecting some good heat and these chips delivered.

The chips are a nice gold color speckled with green jalapeno seasonings. But the flavor isn't just in those speckles, these chips are imbued with jalapeno flavor. After just a few chips you'll begin to notice the nice jalapeno burn sneaking up on you as an after taste. After about 5-10 chips you'll be approaching the full flavor profile of jalapeno perfection. Kettle Brand jalapeno chips are less salty and have less 'folded over' chips than other competing brands and that is what really sets them apart from the others. Every chip is very consistent with flavor and seasonings.

The only downside to these are probably that they are a bit greasy, just like all potato chips. But the packaging does a good job at grabbing excess grease and seasonings and keeping it all stuck to the inside of the bag, mostly at the bottom. This reduces the overall greasiness of the chips to be a bit less than a regular bag of Lays. If you really enjoy the flavor of jalapeno and want every last crumb and bit of grease, after you eat a bag of these, cut open the empty bag and lick the inside for a special treat of unhealthiness. XD I actually did this once.. too much grease for me, but the flavor was very good. :P

Should you eat these?

Yes! These are some of the best jalapeno chips you can buy. Expect some good jalapeno heat. These are hotter than Lay's Sriracha chips.

I wonder how they stack up to Zapps Crawtators

Sriracha is definitely not the hottest chip I've ever tried. I just loved its flavor... Doritos Flamas was pretty high up on the scoville scale

The problem with "spicy" foods today is most of them fail to deliver because most the nation isn't use to it/hasn't grown up on it, so they cant handle it and sales suffer. I know people that are so intolerant toward spicy they can't even handle Hooter's regular hot wings.... which is not spicy at all. lol With my dad's side of the family spending most their life in New Orleans, I grew up on spicy and could eat a jalapeno whole without breaking a sweat. I'll have to keep an eye out for these chips. I love kettle chips, especially for dipping... unlike Lay's, they wont shatter into dust trying to scoop out a heap of french onion. XD

Those Sriracha chips definitely had a great flavor. :nod:

 

I have never seen either of those chips before. O_O I'll definitely have to try the flamas. I used to not be able to handle spiciness. I eventually built up my taste buds for it over the years. In hind sight, I wish I could have tried the super hot doritos back in the day:

Those were ok. I remember trying them at Firehouse Subs, but the flamas has them beat because of the sheer amount of coating they place on the chip... Its hard to get that stuff off your fingers.

I've always been intrigued by that.. im going to take a pic of the section of hot sauces on our shelf tomorrow and see how it compares to how much space is dedicated to it in your grocery store up there. :P

Its similar suprisingly, but we offer more sizes in each. I forgot about taking a pic. BTW Have you tried Louisiana Hot Sauce? I highly recommend it. It puts Tabasco to shame IMO.

I haven't tried it. I don't think they sell it anywhere here. Whats really surprising is the amount of hot sauce this Tops store sells. All other stores in this area has maybe 2 shelves of hot sauce and nowhere near the variety this store has.

Hmm I just noticed that. I wonder if they have the regular. We don't have those down here. I sent a package of samplers to a friend in VA that doesn't have access to Louisiana, he seems to love the Chipotle... being as I'm not a huge fan of the chipotle flavor I couldn't comment.  Habanero might be good, but it could be bitter.

Next time I'm there I'll pick one up and see what its like.

 

Do you have any Dinosaur BBQ sauces there? Its in my third pic middle shelf far left. Those are their hot sauces.. The devils duel is insanely hot. I can pour any bbq sauce into a bowl, add 2-3 drops of that hot sauce and instantly have a hot and spicy version of whatever sauce I want. I mixed some of that with Montgomery Inn bbq sauce and it turned out to be some of the best sauce I've ever used for bbq.

I'll have to check it out. I think I've seen that around...

 

I think we've had this discussion before... Did I ever tell you about Satan's Blood? http://www.hotsauceworld.com/satansblood.html 800,000 on the scoville chart, its the hottest sauce I've ever attempted and it leaves your stomach feeling like someone poured hot lead into it. XD It doesn't taste very good either. Its very pungent and bitter.

 

That being said... FUCK THIS: http://www.hotsauceworld.com/bl3amrepeex.html XD You'll have to pay me A LOT to try that. There is a rare one that tops 16 million on the scale too: http://www.hotsauceworld.com/bl6amrepeexe.html

I do like their 50,000 scoville sauce. Its very hot, but it tastes pretty good. At one time I thought this was the hottest hot sauce ever. :P

I don't think so.. It'd probably kill me. I'd have one of the most elaborate and expensive funerals tho. XD

 

How about you?

      Fairy Tail is officially ending. Only 10 chapters left. This writer turned this series into garbage plot lines. I'm genuinely pissed at this manga now. Not because favorite characters are being killed off like most manga/animes do at the end.. Not that any main characters at this point are in any real threat of dying since every character seems to be immortal. Being mad like that would be a good thing since it means I feel for the characters and the overall plot.. But instead I'm mad because the writer threw so many random plot lines into the story over the last year that its become laughable like a bad soap opera. All long term plot lines are pretty much negated and last minute characters and plot lines now resolve everything.. something that was just revealed 10 chapters ago now solves half the danger to the planet that has been build up as an ultimate power throughout the last 400 chapters. wtf.
      I'll compare this to DBZ. Imagine all that build up how powerful Freeza was.. but then right before Goku is going to fight him, Krillin found some magic orb and then Bulma kicked it at Freeza and killed him. No big fight with Goku, no planet namek getting destroyed.. hell, Goku never even met Freeza. Thats the equivalent of what just happened. WTF.

      I did a minor upgrade to the site today, but a couple of themes are not running the most recent build so there might be a few issues with the text editors or some links not displaying everything 100% properly. If anyone notice any discrepancies, let me know.

      GW2 had a balance patch yesterday and my necro had 2 specific skills changed. Epidemic got nerfed, and plague form got turned into plaguelands. I tried them both out last night. In a small mob of enemies epi looks like it works about the same, but I need to test it out more thoroughly. I haven't used the plague form in over a year, but when I did use it, it was for pvp and wvw because it gave stability and basically guaranteed an un-interrupted enemy stomp. Now it is a completely different skill that makes a small aoe field that pulses massive conditions. When I used it on a mob, that mob melted faster than anything. Holy crap. But even with my traits set to reduce cool down on corruption skills, I can only use this skill every 80 seconds. This skill is only useful against large zergs of strong enemies and bosses. This skill was designed specifically for raid bosses imo. Its aoe is too small and the cool down too high for normal pve. I'd rather keep flesh golem on for the cc against champs and legendary enemies. Sure plaguelands can pump out the damage, but the utility of flesh golem cc is too good to give up for me.

      It feels like I've had constant appointments for the last month that keep eating into all my free time. Even this week I have at least 3 places to go during work hours causing me to make up time during my free time. x_x Tomorrow I need to go back to the tire shop. I got my summer tires mounted and balanced on thursday and by late saturday afternoon I'm getting a helicopter kind of air sound from my front left tire. "whoosh whoosh whoosh". I thought I had a bearing going, but I got my breaker bar out and sure enough the lug nuts weren't tight. wtf. First time I've ever had this tire place screw up a mounting before and I've been going to them for over 14 years. I tightened them up but I'm still getting a bit of sound while driving. I don't feel like hauling my 3 ton jack out of my basement so I"ll go back there tomorrow. I'm pretty certain they're going to have to lift the car and re-center the tire.
