I love munching on chips. It’s one of the activities I usually do whenever I’m multi-tasking (working/e-mailing/writing notes/thinking/eating). Sometimes I eat nuts, sometimes I eat potato chips and sometimes I eat fruits. These past few days though, I have been trying out something new.
It is called Texas Wild Very Hot Chips and it’s from the makers of popular brands such as Rebisco cracker sandwiches, ChocoMucho, ChocoTopps, Fudgee Bar and Dingdong Nuts. Republic Biscuit Corporation (Rebisco) is one of the pioneers in the biscuit industry. They now carry a wide variety of snack food items ranging from nuts, cakes, chocolate bars, candies and chips.
I particularly find Texas Wild Very Hot Chips interesting. It has something to do with how they market the product. They put in the very sexy Daiana Menezes in a poster modelling the chips with a caption, “Are you HOT enough?“.
I remember meeting the pretty & kind actress in the FHM 100 Sexiest Women in the World last 2011. Considering she’s one of the hottest women in the Philippines, does that make the Texas Wild Very Hot Chips hot too?
Well, the Texas Wild Very Hot Chips was made definitely for the adventurous ones!
The packaging might look simple but it obviously has an appeal for people who craves for spicy food.
I’ve eaten a couple of packs already and I must say that Texas Wild Very Hot Chips is strong in taste. It was indeed very spicy (more than usually actually).
What makes this snack unique is that the spicy flavour was blended with cheese. There is no need for us to find melted cheese or barbeque sauce to dip the chips with. Texas Wild Very Hot Chips was loaded with flavours and yes, it was definitely hot!
Here’s a trivia:
The hotness of chili is not caused by seeds but by the compound called Capsaicin found in the white membrane that attaches the seed to the pod.
Drinking beer is the more effective way of cooling your mouth than drinking water. Capsaicin, the substance responsible for the burning effect of chili is not water soluble. It is soluble in fat and alcohol.
I believed that beer is the best drink to go with the spicy chips. However, I just hate the taste of alcohol. I made a bit of an adjustment by drinking malunggay juice with it. I know it doesn’t make my whole snack healthy but at least, there’s a healthy component in it, hahaha!
Now, on to munching!
