Frito-Lay officially launched their Screamin’ Sriracha flavor today, a limited-edition twist that takes the chips into new territory.
Described by the brand as “the perfect balance of punch and spice for bold, food-curious snackers,” the new offering brings savory flavors like chili and vinegar that earned the famous hot-sauce its status as a staple.
The sriracha craze has only escalated in recent years and shows no sign of going away (sriracha keychains are even a thing), so this is just the latest way the hot sauce has infiltrated snack aisles.
Doritos are one of my top go-tos when it comes to snacking. Cheesy Nacho is a classic, Cool Ranch is great on occasion, Spicy Nacho is a game changer, hell, even the sweet heat of the chilli one they have is great! HOWEVER, I draw the line at Sriracha. First of all, I hate how it's spelled. Why the extra "R" in there?! Secondly, it's not a friendly heat, do you know what I mean? It's not like a jalapeno or a buffalo, it's...harsh. I don't like the flavor at all BUT with that being said, if it's between no late night snack or these chips, I'm eating them probably 9/10 times. Mark this under the "will probably eat when intoxicated" category for me. - T
