Fiesta Crunch Chili Con Carne Potato Poppers

fiestacrunch.jpgThe nice folks at Fiesta Crunch recently set me a big box full of their products to try. Some were good, others not so good, and one stood out as being really good. Chili Con Carne Potato Poppers got my attention right away with a bold, rich flavor. Itís about as close as youíre going to get to a real bowl of chili con carne. And Iím not just talking about the combination of tomatoes and spices that makes up a good bowl of chili. Somehow, they were able to capture the essence of the meat itself and put it in the little fried balls of corn meal and potato flakes. By biting one of the poppers in half, I was able to see that the flavorings go deep into it. This is unlike many products Iíve eaten that have the flavorings just sprayed on the outside and is probably one reason why these have such strong flavor. I think Fiesta Crunch is a new brand, and I havenít seen their products in my area yet. I hope I do soon because Iíd love to buy Chili Con Carne Potato Poppers when Iím craving some real good snackage. Also highly recommended are Fiesta Crunch Restaurant Style White Corn Tortilla Chips. They are as good, if not better, than any similar product Iíve ever eaten.

Phoood rating: Outstanding!

I was beginning to wonder if you'd dropped off the face of the earth! Glad you climbed out of the bowl of chili con carne you fell into to bring us the news about these poppers - I like the snacks that use the corn meal / potato flakes combination as the base. I was beginning to wonder why they don't incorporate flavors into the base during processing.
Let's just pray a combination of bacon bits and dehydrated jalapeno bits into some poppers. That would settle their brand into the snack shelves.
