Spicy potato chips?

wc628 | | Jan 17, 2008 12:03 AM

I'm looking for potato chips that will provide intense heat. The jalapeno flavoured chips found in major supermarkets are pretty tame.

Fiery Habanero Doritos are OK. They just taste cheesy at first but the heat builds slowly the more you eat. Overall they're like Nachos with lots of black pepper. I find the cheese and corn chip taste interferes with the spiciness. Not to mention the ingredient list is a little scary.

10+ years ago I used to buy snack size Jalapeno chips from a sandwich truck at work. They looked deceptively like regular flavoured chips with a dusting of light green powder, but made your tongue burn immediately. The flavour was great, just potato, salt and hot pepper. It wasn't a major brand, and sadly I don't remember the name. The bag had various shades of green.

Are Blair's Death Rain Habanero chips available in the GTA? They are available online at but they're pretty pricy and I'm wary of shipping chips long distance. They would probably arrive as potato crumbs.
