Blair's Death Rain

I've sampled a vast number of potato chip brands, including some so delicious that I can no longer be easily impressed.

I also have a slight aversion to flavored chips. Talk about gilding lilies; why mask the spudly goodness?

But Blair's Death Rain, which are not only flavored, but extreme-flavored, are great. Their medium spicy ones are just about right for me; the heat crests into tongue-singeing intensity without quite creeping past the pain point. Their cheddar flavor is remarkably true, and their chipotle is beautifully smokey and delicate. Both are further proof that the latest generation of food additives are getting really really good.

They're available at Fairway Markets and (in bulk) at Amazon...or order via the company's online store (at link above).
