Welcome To Taste of States a place where we celebrate the weird and wonderful food of the United States of America. This can be everything from the snacks that are available for a limited time to the foods that are classic traditions at events such as Christmas and Thanksgiving! Each week we will explore the facts and the history surrounding a different food.
LAYS BACON WRAPPED JALAPENO POPPER FLAVORED CHIPS
On this feature, I love looking at all the unusual crisp flavours that America release as there are always so many different ones that we don’t get in the United Kingdom and they are also incredibly inventive. Today we are going to look at a flavour that was available for a short time in 2017. They were so popular they have actually returned to the market for limited times since then as well.
This is a crisp that proves popular around sporting events and is usually released around the time of the Superbowl, however they were also available last year in time for the FIFA World Cup. So why is it an important flavour? Well, jalapeño popper are a very popular snack in the states around these huge social events and are a pepper stuffed with cheese, spices and then deep fried. You can even get versions where there is bacon wrapped around as well for a more decadent flavour, so you can imagine why these crisp have been a hit.
These crisp combine those flavours and put them into a fun tasty treat in 7.75-ounce bags and could be purchased for around $3.79 in a lot of different grocery stores. They have a really positive review online and so it is no wonder they keep returning!
