We have wanted to try these new Pretzel Crisps ever since The Impulsive Buy spotted them on Safeway shelves some four months ago….
We mean come’on – BACON & HABANERO?!?! Yes & Yes – Please!!
In fact, these aren’t the first bacon habanero flavored chips that we have tried. Last year Late July’s lip-smacking tortilla chips wowed us.
Let’s hope that this flavor combo becomes a new standard among all chip companies – because there could be nothing wrong with that!
Smokey, salty, delicious bacon essence exudes from the Pretzel Crisps.
The flavor is sort of reminiscent of barbeque seasoning, and we are surprised to see that Pretzel Crisps has never offered the classic flavor as an option….
Unfortunately, similar to Late July’s chips, these Pretzel Crisps suffer from a case of no-habanero-flavor-idous. Maybe, just maybe, we get a little bit of the chili flavor deep behind the bacon, and there is a subtle burn when all is said and done.
But really, this seasoning is all about the bacon.
The crisps are tasty, and salty bacon flavor works well with the pretzels (not quite as well as Late July’s corn-ful tortilla chips), but we still really wish that we could taste some habanero!
Another welcome addition to Pretzel Crisps’ line-up.
