This isn't even close to the Habanero-version which is much hotter... I thought it was supposed to be the other way around?

I received one of the first cases of these which finally shipped after Hurricane Sandy. These have a very strong BBQ flavor, which is great if you like that sort of thing but I’m not the biggest fan of BBQ chips. I was quite disappointed to discover that the heat level of these chips is not what I was expecting and was very inconsistent between bags. Some of them were so mild that I had to check the bag to make sure I wasn’t eating plain old BBQ chips (maybe they were mislabeled). The ones that were hot were not as hot as the Habanero chips (as others have reported too). Considering the price per chip difference I was quite disappointed.

I do realize that some of this may be due to Hurricane Sandy which I believe destroyed most of the first batch and that these may have been rushed through production. If current or future production runs of them will be hotter than the Habanero chips (as these should be) then I will order some more. As it is now I’m sticking with the cheaper Habanero chips.

Bought a case of these and was disappointed. Does not compare to the Habanero chips (much hotter/tastier) plus it's only available in a smaller bag size. Love Death Sauce & all of the products, but felt a bit jipped w/this purchase..cannot recommend.

Overall pretty disappointing. The heat was pretty good, but not what I would consider searing. As for the flavor it was really, really dull. Couldn't taste any salt on them. I know it was in there somewhere from looking at the nutrition info, but I couldn't taste it. Also, I like a bit of tart in my spicy food, but this had none of that either. They really just tasted like eating a averagely hot pepper. After I ate the first few chips I ended up liberally sprinkling salt and citric acid on them to give them some flavor. Got bored and didn't finish the bag. Would not buy again.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
There are a couple problems with these chips. The first is, like many have already stated before me, is they are simply not as hot as the habanero chips. This is indeed disappointing as one would expect them to be hotter. However, the biggest problem I had with these chips is I bought an entire case of them and they are most certainly stale. I bought a case of the habanero chips, and they are not stale, so it's painfully obvious how stale the chips are. In fact, the bags themselves seem somewhat deflated. The final issue with the chips (which is a minor one) is the cost. $30 for 14 bags of 5 oz. habanero chips is fine, but this is 14 bags of 3 oz. chips for $42.00. Combined with the less than spicy taste, and the staleness of the chip, this is certainly not a chip I will be purchasing again.

I have to agree with other lower rated reviews of these chips. They aren't even close to hitting the level of the Habanero chips. I was very disappointed with the heat. I was expecting more heat than Habanero. The flavor for the chips is good however. I would only give them a 3/4 level on the hot meter on the bag, not the WTF as listed. I would NOT buy these chip again unless they fix the heat to where is should be being Jolokia pepper chips. Blair, you gotta fix this!!!
