Jalapeño have a unique flavour, that is so often lost or abused when processed into a so called Jalapeño flavoured product, so it is with great interest I come to writing this review.

Kettle Chips Jalapeño Chilli (hot)

Kettle Chips Jalapeño Chilli (hot)

The bag is a very unusual colour, best described as dark pink, not a colour I associate with Jalapeño, I guess I would expected green.. the bag is a good sized 150g sharing size, that is unless it tastes good, then the bag is mine all mine…

Ingredients: Selected Potatoes, Sunflower Oil, Jalapeño Chilli Seasoning (Rice Flour, Dried Spirit Vinegar, Sea Salt,  Dried Jalapeño Peppers, Dried Green Peppers, Dried Lemon Juice, Yeast Extract, Dried Parsley, Jalapeño Chilli Extract, Parsley Extract).

On opening there is no real discernible smell of chillies or jalapeños, the crisps do not look heavily flavours, but there is a definite jalapeño flavour to them, not hot but warmer that many of the crisps we get to try, they are not in the same league of heat as the Nando’s or Blairs Death Rain, if fact not even close, but having said that the are very pleasant to snack on and have a nice crisp crunch.

These remind me of a very mild pickled jalapeño, I did pick up hints of Lemon, but it is mostly it is a light vinegar flavour with jalapeño.

Having said that I am impressed with the flavour, it is Jalapeño, it could easily be more so, but at the moment they are the one best Jalapeño flavour crisps I have had in the UK, but there is little competition….

At £1.85 for a 150g pack they are about average price for this size pack.

Good news is that it says on the pack they are free from artificial flavours and preservatives and are suitable for vegetarians and vegans, so I may have to share this pack around.

Like Hot Juan, my whole family and I are great chilli lovers and love to try new flavours and the hotter the better. We came across the Kettle Crisps Jalapeno flavour and were thrilled to have finally found some crisps with a kick and once you open them be warned you cannot stop and can easily get through the whole pack by yourself without realising it, they are so moreish! Then the big shock at about the beginning of summer Tesco, are usual place to shop did not stock them anymore without warning. We have looked everywhere since to find other retailers that would stock them but alas we have given up looking as nowhere seems to stock them. We have tried other makes of crisps stating Chilli Flavour but alas no other brand matches the Kettle Crisps, so i am just sending this comment to you to see if you know where we can purchase this product as our tastes buds are in cold turkey desperate for these crisps! We would be grateful if you could help us.
