While the hubster and I were in the Bulk Barn (bulk food store) picking up a few ingredients (plus treats – ha!) he stopped to check out the bags of chips they were selling. These aren’t your run of the mill chips like Lays or Tostito’s. We’d never even heard of this brand before: Blair’s Death Rain. Then we saw that they were habanero pepper flavoured chips. Hubster was completely sold on trying these as every chip that has claimed to be ‘hot’ or ‘spicy’ was in fact not. He figured these would be the same. Erm. No. Let’s just say that I had 1/2 of a small chip and immediately gave the other half to the hubster to finish. It started off as a slow salty/vinegary heat then kept growing from there. From that one bite, I felt ‘warm’ for at least 45 minutes. Now don’t get me wrong, I like food with flavour and somewhat spicy food. This type of insane spicy – not so much. And apparently not for the hubster either as he admitted to only having 4 more chips after the 1/2 chip I gave him. He can usually take anything super spicy. Poor guy!
If you love to get your pain on via endorphin rush after eating hot/spicy food – then these may be for you.
They do offer other flavours of chips. For more info, visit their website:
