REVIEW: Zapp’s – Spicy Cajun Crawtators Potato Chips

Rating: ©©©-3/4 chips  (notable)


Zapp’s Spicy Cajun Crawtators are what we would consider Zapp’s flagship signature flavor of chips.  We can’t say for certain that these were Zapp’s first and original chips that started it all for them, but if we were a betting group, we would certainly feel comfortable putting our money on it.

These Spicy Cajun Crawtators emulate Southern flavor and soul.  Strong spicy Cajun flavors with a mix of barbecue seasoning (smokey paprika garlic, onion).  While the flavor doesn’t shout crawfish/crawdad boil to us, we do taste something in the background that makes us think we are tasting a little bit of shellfish.

We definitely appreciate the concept and creativity of these chips more than we actually like them.  Zapp’s thick, crunchy potato chips are always great, but when it comes down to it, this flavor really is not much more than a slightly glorified variation on seasoning salt.

As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think.  Agree or disagree, let us know.

  1. Agreed–I was looking for something much more bold and unique, and hoping for a little more tang. These seemed mostly like bbq chips without the sugar, with some kind of weird shrimpy-ness.
