These. Are. Delicious!!

Calbee is rolling out the limited edition flavors one after another, so I decided to grab this one before it disappeared forever and I didn’t get a chance to try it. I was in a particularly snacky mood today and was definitely not disappointed. I’ll admit to being a bit biased since I’m a rabid sour cream fan who would eat it on basically anything, but these chips are seriously good.

If you’re like me and aren’t a fan of spicy food, you would probably be a little hesitant to try something that blatantly has a picture of a hot pepper on the front, but I was pretty surprised to find that the jalapeno wasn’t all that strong. It is definitely very different from biting into a real jalapeno. At most there’s just enough to feel a gentle burn (even the bag says it’s a “gradual spiciness”.) It did make my nose run a bit though.

As with a lot of the chips in this particular series, these are coated in a light powder that is what is responsible for a lot of the flavor, so they might get your fingers a little dusty, but apart from that I don’t know if I can find something bad to say. These were so satisfying I finished the whole bag in probably less than five minutes. Oops.
