As usual with the packaging, you see all those flames and think, “These might be pretty hot.” Well yes they brought the heat, but in an unexpected kind of way. I don’t know how they pulled it off, but somehow the folks at Frito-Lay figured out how to add heat to the Funyuns so that it tickling the back of your throat instead of your tongue. It is such a strange sensation, that I want to try these again. The ingredient list on the packaging doesn’t list what peppers are used for the heat. But whatever they are using, its gotten me interested.
