Nando’s Smokey BBQ Peri Peri Crisps [Medium] (Sainsbury’s)
It was a little while ago that I wrote about Nando’s Peri Peri Chicken Crisps, and my search for the ‘hot’ version which is also available. I still haven’t found the ‘hot’ crisps, but I am pleased to announce that I have found another new flavour, these BBQ Peri Peri ones.
The crisps are allegedly the same heat temperature as the chicken flavour, but I felt that they were far more zingy and spicy. Both types are labelled as having a medium heat. I thought the barbecue flavour was sweet and smoky and with just a gentle saltiness too them too. As you eat them, the heat from the chilli builds up in to a lovely buzz on the tongue. The spice is perfect for me, but certainly stronger than the Peri Peri Chicken ones, as these ones have a pleasant burn. I love the crunch with these crisps too, well defined but not overly brittle. I thought these crisps were superb, some of the nicest I have had.
It does make me worry a little about finding the ‘hot’ variety though, if they are much hotter than these it might just be a little uncomfortable for me, but my search will continue!
