Seabrook Scorchin' Hot Trinidad Scorpion Chilli Crisps (Aldi) By @SpectreUK

Seabrook Scorchin' Hot Trinidad Scorpion Chilli Crisps

Cinabar is trying to kill me again. We've already tried a very hot flavour of crisps from Seabrook Fire Eaters Smokin’ Hot Smokehouse Cayenne the other day, which had our mouths tingling and noses sweating. So no-one would touch these Seabrook Trinidad Scorpion Chilli flavour crisps, except muggins of course. They have a five chilli heat warning on them! I do like spicy chilli crisps and some hot sauces. I prefer hot sauces which I can taste rather than ones that are just trying to hurt me. The amount of warnings on the front of this packet make me slightly anxious. Though I have had plenty of warnings on other crisp packets before and been disappointed that they haven't had the chilli heat they warned of. Have I already stated there is a five chilli warning on this packet? I do remember the chilli heat from Seabrook Fire Eaters Smokin’ Hot Smokehouse Cayenne, but they were very tasty, lets hope these Trinidad Scorpion Chilli flavour crisps are tasty or they might find themselves in the bin, like the odd ridiculously hot sauce I've had in the past.

On opening the packet these almost fire engine red crinkle cut crisps certainly smelt chilli hot, but also like they would be pretty tasty too. Wow… on trying the first bright red crisp there was a taste sensation of hot chilli, but the burn from the chilli straight afterwards was a little too painful for me. I was already sweating from just coming back from the gym after spending too long in the sauna. My nose started to run after the first few crisps. I had a multitude to go… I decided my only option here would be to have a massive crisp sandwich. I used to eat Kamikaze sandwiches laced with diced chilli grown in our greenhouse all the time. This would be a mega Kamikaze crisp sandwich!

… Actually it was a Kamikaze crisp bap, as we didn't have any sliced bread in. I do like a good bap anyway. In fact I do like a nice pair of baps…! Oh my, this one Kamikaze crisp bap was a hot one though. I had some crisps left over on the side which served to torture me as I sweated over my fiery hot Kamikaze Trinidad Scorpion Chilli flavour crisps bap. I went through quite a few tissues mopping my brow and nose by the end of it I can tell you. It certainly was tasty, but also still a little too painful, so these crisps are a little too hot for me, I'm afraid. If you fancy a go yourself, be warned, these Trinidad Scorpion Chilli flavour crisps really are super five chilli burning hot!

You big girl's blouse!
You need to ram them in your mouth 4 at a time.
Only after you've munched and swallowed does the heat then kick in.
You can repent at leisure!
