These caught my eye in wilkinsons the other day, mainly because there was a huge stand of them (i also got wasabi, chilli and cheese and rib flavour) they were also on offer for 78p which is nearly £1 less than in morrisons and tesco.
I was kind of excited to try them as the new punked up packaging promised that they were hot and extreme so i was expecting a big hit of flavour once id popped the top.
Unfortunately they did nothing to back up the extreme claims, they were pretty much tasteless, they did taste of chilli but were hardly spicy, in fact they were less spicy than most “sweet” chilli crisps I’ve tried. I event tried eating half of the pack to see if they were one of those snacks that the heat built up the more you ate, but again i was let down, they predominant flavour being crisp…i nearly said potato but that would be a lie as they didn’t even taste of potato.
Lets hope the other flavours are a bit more extreme.
Chilli Up North Verdict: Pretty much as far from extreme as you can get 2/10 (Heat 1/10)
