Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips

Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips

Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips have given themselves a face-melting reputation for being chips that aren’t for the sweet-tongued. They have ensured that beyond having an iron gut, you better have a steel mouth or you will be taken on a sweltering time-out. Generally, they do so with their infamous One Chip Challenge but they’ve taken the road to heavier production in snack and full-size bags of hot, hot heat. 

Although we aren’t partaking in the Paqui One Chip Challenge, TODAY, we definitely look forward to it in the near future. If you still don’t believe they crank the heat, check out the brief video below. These are not for the faint of heart, the “Jalapenos are about all I can handle!”, or those that get ulcers from spicy food. These ARE hot!

Nutrition Facts For Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips

Now, depending on how much heat you are willing to take on, should dictate a serving size. I wouldn’t say pushing it too hard beyond a handful of chips. However, Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper likes to make deals with the devil. Their serving size is a full bag (2oz) and unless you’re ready to have your world ruined, I’d say just let them keep that size.

However, if you think you can bag it up, you’re looking at 280 calories, 14g total fat, 2g saturated fat, 0g trans fat, 0mg cholesterol, 420mg sodium, 36g total carbohydrate, 2g dietary fiber, 1g total sugars (SUGAR?!), 0g added sugar, 4g protein, 46mg calcium, 2mg iron, and 130mg potassium.

The sugar must be in jest unless it just catches fire with the ghost pepper. That said, I’m excited and ready to feel the BURN! I won’t be doing a whole bag for my review but I feel a handful will do just fine. I know these will burn but will they have some flavor that enhances them?

If They’re So Hot, Why’s The Bag Still Here?

The bag itself looks innocent enough giving a color scheme of black and white with only spots of rapturous red and a picture of one of the bag’s chips. Ghost Pepper should be a fair enough warning Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips should really be a warning, even to the uninformed. I’ve been on some hot dates, and this one dares to see me ill-equipped to make it through, but can it?

Upon opening the portal to Scoville’s sharp-cornered son’s of anarchy, the smell is almost dull or neutral. You’d assume they forgot to season these little tortilla treats, but I assure you this is a trick for a trap on full display. This isn’t my first dance with the devil and I know she’ll want to keep dancing with me long after this.

Do be aware that you need to be careful after grabbing one of these chips, wiping your eyes and other sensitive areas can irritate them greatly. The first bite of these chips doesn’t lead you on with an abundance of flavor and I believe that’s to ensure that you get to know this apparition of a pepper intimately. Within a matter of five seconds or less you will feel the heat grow throughout your tongue, on your lips, and through your throat. It is a refreshing heat that will give you a wake-up call.

The confined capsaicin within these chips will contaminate your mouth the further you entertain eating these agents of carnage. The bag indicates they’re “Freakin’ Hot!” and I will say that they deliver PLENTY of heat. If you can handle these, your palate will be cleansed for anything else you introduce to it. 

I am giving these chips a 9/10 because they are production friendly to the masses as a great way to get a fist on fire in your mouth and as a good snack for those that are heat needing. I will reiterate that there isn’t much in the way of flavor other than the tortilla chip and some light seasoning, but this isn’t bad. Paqui Haunted Ghost Pepper Chips delivered a devil to me and she definitely dropped bombs on me.
