Spicy Snack Tasting and Evaluation Report

The folks at MexGrocer.com sent me 12 bags of snacks, mostly hot and spicy chips of all kinds.  I gave these bags to various tasters, who evaluated them according to the same judging forms we use for the Scovie Awards Competition.  The results are in and here are the winners with links to their pages on MexGrocer.com:

1. Sabritas Habanero Limón

Sabritas takes takes the finest potatoes and dips the in sunflower and/or corn oil to give it that crunchy taste, and then adds authentic chile habanero with salt and citric flavors to make it a spicy taste of Mexico. These are not your average potato chips. You will enjoy the taste of chili habanero Sabritas one after another. As the old saying goes, “I bet You can’t eat just one.” These are “Too Good to Eat Just One.”

2. Doritios -Toro Habanero

Doritos takes takes the finest tortilla chips to give them that crunchy taste, and then adds authentic chile habanero with cheddar cheese, spices and citric flavors to make it a spicy taste of Mexico. These are not your average tortilla chips. You will enjoy the taste of chili habanero one after another.

3. Churritos Chile and Lime

  1. Hey, thanks for the cool blog articles, recipes and other cool stuff! As a hot-&-spicy fanático myself, I can appreciate a good hot snack. I have to say though, I’m a bit surprised the Doritos took second over Churritos… When I saw that bag I knew it was great. Never had Sabritas though… definitely gonna have to try those! B-)
