Product vs Product: Sweet Heat Battle!


 You are in for a special treat, folks!  Because I was given two similar themed bags of chips, I decided to do the first ever product versus product battle royale!  Prepare for... SWEET HEAT BATTLE!!!!!!!!!  Sylvia's Restaurant Honey Jalapeno Chips vs Cape Cod Sweet & Spicy Jalapeno Kettle Chips.

Round 1: Texture.  Sylvia's chips were light and crispy.  The Cape Cod chips are "kettle cooked," which are thicker and crunchier than your standard chips.  I'm a fan of kettle chips, so this round goes to Cape Cod.

Round 2: Flavor.  Both of these chips had a decent afterburn from the jalapeno.  The main difference is found in the sweet aspect.  Sylvia's chips have a surprisingly strong flavor of honey, which, also surprisingly, paired extremely well with the spiciness of the jalapeno.  Cape Cod, however, really had no overt sweetness to it, just that faint, mild sweetness most kettle chips have.  This round goes to Sylvia's hands down.

Winner:  Sylvia's Restaurant Honey Jalapeno Chips by a landslide!  So good.
