Spicy Snacks

If you don’t like the heat, keep your hand out of the bowl. Spicy snacks are always a popular choice. A trip down the snack aisle shows that heat is a huge food trend.
Truthfully, the popularity of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos has several snack brands embracing the heat. Numerous snacks, like Ruffles and even Funions have Flamin’ Hot varieties.

Of course, earlier this year, Doritos launched its Flamin’ Hot Nacho chip. That fiery bite of nacho chip goodness was definitely a game changer. If you haven’t indulged in this snack, you better find a bag soon.

But, flamin’ hot isn’t the only spicy choice. There are all types of heat-centric snacks on the market. From tabasco flavored to even gochujang enhanced snacks, the options are many.

If you are serving a lot of spicy snacks, make sure to have a few heat reducers on hand. Remember water and beer will not make the heat go away. Dairy is the best choice to tame those flames.
