We’re gonna have a problem here!!

What happens when a local Detroit chip company and a local Detroit guy – gone worldwide rap superstar come together to create some spicy hot sauce corn chips?  Well, in our opinion, good things!

We were very surprised as we looked back through our reviews for spicy corn chips to discover that we have only tried two others along our chip reviewing journeys.  And it is fair to say that Nick’s Hot Sauce Corn Chips are most definitely better than these or these – meaning that they are the BEST of the small spicy corn chip group that we have tried so far.

These corn chips may not be for everyone, especially anyone out there who can’t stand the heat, or is opposed to loads of seasoning or flavor!  The dark red seasoning liberally coats each chip, delivering a pretty harsh, and spicy seasoning blend.  Powerful notes of zingy vinegar tangy-ness swirl in the background.  A little garlic, little onion, and even a touch of sweetness round everything out.  It is fair to say that there is not very much natural about this seasoning!  Did we mention that these are spicy?  Because they really, really, really are spicy! They build up to quite a tremendous heat that resonates in the mouth for some time!

The corn chips themselves have a firm and strong crunch, with a little dense chew.  Despite all of the powerful seasoning coating the chips, we could still taste some of corn chip flavor.  Other than that pretty standard shape and size.

While Nick’s Hot Sauce Corn Chips may be lacking some of the depth of flavor that Nick’s Hot Sauce Cheese Curls had (likely due to the lack of any cheese component), they are still a most welcome addition to the spicy corn chip family!

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