Seabrook Loaded Fries Chilli Heat (Morrisons) By @SpectreUK

Seabrook Loaded Fries Chilli Heat

It's always nice to see alternative brands of crisps with new alternatives in flavours and crisp styles. I haven't seen maize crisps made by Seabrook before. I do enjoy their crinkle cut crisps when I find them. These Seabrook Loaded Fries are Chilli Heat flavour. There is also a Cheese and Bacon flavour to write about on a later date.

To me the term 'Loaded Fries' should mean loaded with flavour. These 'Chilli Heat' in their chilli pepper red coloured packet should be pretty hot I reckon. I'm hoping they're not so hot that I can't taste the chilli flavour, but it's rare that I've found a snack that does that. Nose sweating chilli burn I can cope with and usually like, but it's that super hot chilli sauce loaded full of mega hot chillis, which seems to burn right through my palate before I can taste the chillis that I don't like. I do have a few favourite hot sauces that I regularly have in the cupboard though, which I like with chicken and chips, and also for dipping sliced potatoes.

On opening the packet there was a tomato and chilli aroma from the red coloured slimline maize chips inside. On first tentative taste these Seabrook Loaded Fries Chilli Heat are predominantly tomato in flavour, with a medium to mild chilli heat from the Red Bell Chillis in the ingredients. These chips are very tasty indeed, but mainly of tomatoes with mild burn at the back of the flavour, and a little garlic in the aftertaste.

If Seabrook had called them Tomato and Chilli flavour, I'd have been much more understanding, but Chilli Heat is a bit of an over exaggeration. Having said that, I do really like them a lot, as I do love tomato flavoured crisps and alternative snacks, and will definitely buy them again.

The salt and vinegar variety are my favourite.
Chipstcks by another name. :-)
