Potato Chip Review – Sabritas – Doritos – Toro Habanero

What do you get when you take Nacho Cheese Doritos, and add in a mixture of sour (courtesy of citric acid) and habanero flavor. You get Sabritas (Frito-Lay’s) Toro Habanero flavored chips! So on to the critical questions, that being were these chips hot, as in picante and not calinete? Oh yes they were, but it wasn’t an in your face kind of heat with the first bite, it was more of a smoldering heat that almost turns into an inferno of fire in your mouth with almost a hint of a fruity aftertaste while the heat is dying down in your mouth.

Would I get these again, right now I’m 50/50 on the flavor. I kind of wish that they wouldn’t have used so much of the citric acid, even though I understand the reasoning why they did it in the first place (for the acid to enhance the flavor of the habanero, kind of like lime in guacamole) but that is asking a lot out of Frito-Lay. But if you are looking to get your heat fix on, then these are the ticket for you.
