7-11 Brand Potato Chips: Habanero = really hot!

If you are like me, you love hot and spicy stuff, but are always disappointed by commercial potato chips that are labeled “chipotle” or “hot” or “jalapeno” or whatever, since they are not that hot. This thing is a happy exception: it is positively the hottest chips I have ever had.
It is labeled “Select 7 Kettle Style Potato Chips: fiery habanero”. Problem: the label is a rather generic, beige color; there are several different flavors, but the labels all look the same except for the flavor in a red banner about 1/3 from the top of the bag. It is also a bargain: you get 1.5 oz for 79¢. The entire bag is only 230 calories, and only half is from carbs, so if you are on a low carb diet, this one works.
If you like hot stuff, pick up a bag next time you are in 7-11 buying soda. I love it.
