Marcela Valladolid Chile Lime Flaquitos

Purchased Price: $3.00 (on sale)
Size: 9.9 oz. bag
Purchased at: Safeway
Rating: 7 out of 10
Pros: Tasty, spicy snack. Hearty crunch. Nice chili pepper and lime flavor with noticeable notes of paprika. Even though they look like they’re going to be painfully spicy, they have a nice low-to-mid level heat.
Cons: They look like Satan’s claw clippings. Exclusive to Safeway. Not going to be liked by those who dislike monosodium glutamate. They’ll turn your fingers red. I don’t think they’re very spicy, but why are they making my nose run while I’m eating them?

    For more heat, try the habañero flavored ones.

    One more Con for me.. trying to pronounce Marcela’s last name: Villadroid?
    Valhaladala? Vayacondilod?

    Kenneth is right. For more heat, and simply better Flaquitos, give the habanero flavored ones a try. We found them at Dominick’s grocery store in the Chicago area.
