Naughty noshing: Takis

posted on March 25, 2009 at 10:30 am
When Moon and I started dating, I used to get a kick out of how excited he’d get in the junk food aisles of the many Mexican markets I frequent. After one particularly large sugar and carb heavy haul, he turned to me and said: “Mexicans really do make the best junk food in the world.” I turned to him and replied: “no shit, have you seen my ass?” I am such a classy dame; my parents must be proud.
As most of you remember, the first installment of my “Naughty Noshing” series detailed my love for Flamin’ Hot Cheetos. Well, I have found a new Mexican snack that trumps those beauties. Meet my newest addiction: Takis Fuego
Naughty noshing: Takis
Imagine a round tortilla chip that is tightly rolled and packed with loads of dehydrated lime and spicy chile peppers. Each bite is crunchy, salty, lip-puckering and blazing hot. This pretty much how it went down the first time I ate them (you build up a tolerance):
You can only find Takis near the cash register at Mexican markets–seems the company is doing a big marketing push. The chips come in a handful of other flavors–like Salsa Brava, the surprisingly good Guacamole and Fajita–but the Fuego is tops. Check them out and let me know what you think.

    The Takis are great! I got hooked on them by some of the Hispanic soccer players I coach. I’m glad that these aren’t available everywhere (yet) as I would spend half of my food budget on them!
