At a recent birthday party for a New Orleans transplant we munched on Zapp’s potato chips. Mesquite BBQ and Spicy Creole Tomato were a couple of the flavors being passed around, but my favorite has to be Spicy Cajun Crawtators. A chip flavoring that captures the true essence of a crawfish boil, minus the crawfish. The chips are tangy and slightly spicy, and have an umami essence that coats your mouth in flavor. Plus they’re crunchy and brittle just like a kettle-cooked chip should be.
