We Tried It: Late July’s Taco Truck-Inspired Tortilla Chips

Late July's taco-inspired chip flavors

Late July‘s taco-inspired chip flavors

I’m a confessed chip addict, I’ll be the first to admit, but we see a lot of funky flavors passing through the tasting tables here at Cooking Light, which makes me skeptical. I was instantly intrigued, however, when I opened a box containing these Late July beauties. They take flavor inspiration from smoky, spicy, yummy items one might find at a taco truck.

We particularly loved the Bacon Habanero flavor. Testers found them to be the perfect blend of smoky and sweet with a nice heat level. “Like BBQ-flavored chips, but all grown up,” remarked one taster.

A similar sentiment was echoed by a sampler of the Nacho Chipotle flavor “it’s like what I wished Doritos tasted like,” he said. (After I smacked him for Doritos blaspheme, I dusted off my hands and went back for more.)

Personally, I plan to crack open a cold one (or two) this weekend and crunch my way to chip bliss. You can use Late July‘s store locator to try them for yourself.

And, while you’re at it…
