Apparently, we rather enjoyed Lay’s lip-smacking Flamin’ Hot Potato Crisps when we reviewed their original variation nearly four years ago…
Lay’s has now followed Chester’s lead, and taken their Flamin’ Hots, and XTRA-fied them.
Unfortunately, just like with Cheetos original Flamin’ Hots, the XTRA sequel version falls short of the classic.
That being said, they do still bring a lot of that unmistakable Flamin’ Hot flavoring!
And, they most certainly, without a doubt, bring a lot of XTRA heat on them.
The inner curve side of the crisps are absolutely caked with a thick layer of electric red Flamin’ Hot powder.
The seasoning and the potato crisps do not jive in harmony the way that other Flamin’ Hot snacks have.
In the end, if you like spicy chips, and you are already a fan of Lay’s Stax, then you are certainly going to like these.
As always, these are our thoughts, we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree, let us know.
