A few times a year I'll get a hankerin' for some Schlotzsky's (which then reminds me that the idea of some Schlotzsky's is slightly better than the reality, but whatever). Anyway, Schlotzsky's is known for their chips, which are uniformly good or better. They now have Louisiana Hot Sauce chips.

Like many geeks, I like snacks and I like hot food. While Louisiana Hot Sauce isn't my favorite hot sauce on the planet, it's very respectable, and has the advantage of being widely available, putting it firmly in the category of Tabasco, Texas Pete, and Frank's (and it's the usual favorite from that list, but very dependent on what it's being used on/for). Most "hot" chips just aren't. In general, I find that most chips are not flavored enough, regardless of what that flavor is or is supposed to be.

Thus I was surprised by these chips. They are very strongly flavored, and perhaps more surprising is that they taste exactly like the hot sauce. I bet if I was handed one of these chips blind, without being told the flavor, I'd nail it as Louisiana Hot Sauce.

Now here's the funny part: With the first few chips I was marvelling at how they had nailed it, but then I came to the conclusion that I don't necessarily want a chip to taste like Louisiana Hot Sauce. Irony abounds.

Also, there are certain food dyes that your intestines will not absorb.
