The Newest and Strangest in Junk Food

Recently Sonia went to NekoCon and brought back gifts for us. In addition to a strange spinning top, she brought back Lemon Pepper Chips by Target's food brand Archer Farms. (I really like the food that Archer Farms puts out in general. It's cheap, and interesting, and tasty)

They were certainly tasty chips. It wasn't a mild lemon pepper flavoring. It was exactly like putting lemon pepper seasoning all over your chips. I would say that if I was used to them, I would not be so struck by their oddity. However, the powerful lemon and pepper was quite striking. The pepper makes the chips spicy and a bit hot, and the lemon makes it tangy, and one might argue a bit sweet. I think they'd be fabulous dipped in some sour cream
I would say that I would buy them again, but purely for the satisfaction they give my taste buds longing for something strange.


My roommate also picked up some Cheddar Jalapeño Cheetos.

They were our replacement for Flaming Hot Cheetos. They basically tasted like stuffed Jalapeño Peppers. They were quite good, but don't quite reach the deliciousness of Flaming Hot Cheetos. They were much cheesier and less hot then Flaming Hot Cheetos.
I probably wouldn't buy them again because of their inferiority to Flaming Hot Cheetos. Even if I was feeling like something cheesy, I'd go for Cheddar and Sour Cream ruffles. I personally never actively desire anything that tastes like pepper jack or jalapeño, but I would suggest these to someone who does.



I'd say that they both tasted how they were titled, but when food comes in such unexpected flavors, it's hard to imagine what's coming at you.
