    If you like spicy with a light “crunch” and inclined to peanut flavored bent from the sesame seeds, than this is for you. Less greasy than potato chips, gluten free, these will add visual and flavorful flair to any salad or savory dish of your whim, they’d be good on popcorn, or as a topping to any sauce. Or you can eat them straight up, but be forewarned, the spicy effect has a lasting finish. I’d say they are moderately spicy. If you love spicy food, you’ll enjoy these. Recommendations, add your own freshly fried garlic/onions/sage and definitely add your own salt and/or msg—then you’ll take them up to addictive.

    I was a little surprised at first because ive never eaten a snack like this. I wasn’t sure if I would like it or not. I ended up enjoying this snack very much. I’ve also been having constipation and this “cleaned” me out”

    Well, they’re NOT gluten free, as they contain wheat flour, but they ARE amazingly delicious!

    If You love spicy this IS the snack for you! They’re not overwhelmingly spicy,… The more you eat, the more the spice builds and the more addicted you become! Would be paired well atop a salad, with fresh fruit, or solo. I personally enjoy these with my bare fingers straight out of the package they’re delicious! Best $3 I’ve spent!

    These area really good as a topping to for example, a stir fry. I made a rice/veggie/tofu stir fry and sprinkled some of these on top. Great texture, and the sesame really lightens the intensity of the spice and gives it an interesting and nice flavor.

    I can’t get enough of these chiles! I do enjoy them best by themselves. I do like them with popcorn and retain the crunchiness. Or the sesame little crackers. I have bought multiples when I can. It will be sad when they are gone.

    Love these! Moderate spice that builds over time. Good alone as a snack, but I have also used them in a wrap and sprinkled on a salad. They’re pretty addictive and I’ll definitely buy more.

    My boyfriend goes to UCI and brings them home because they are always stocked at the on-campus Trader Joe’s. He comes come and I’m like “do you have my chilies?”

  8. Matt

    Amazing, and there isn’t added sugar serving as a “cheap-out” flavor enhancer. but if you eat the whole bag you will probably regret it the next day if you catch my drift.

  9. Robert Clouse

    Are you kidding me? It’s like eating insect husks dunked in Tabasco. It’s literally the grossest thing I have ever eaten.

    Danger. Booty Burner.

    These are indeed tasty and addictive! However, once you eat past the top third of the bag, the remaining pieces are really too small to be considered a snack by itself, and they truly are just a topping for pizza, rice, salads, etc. Not sure I would buy them again for the current price (inflation!).

  12. Diane

    Really yummy! Mixed them into a bag of Mochi rice nuggets for extra crunch

  13. Marina

    Painfully delicious ;p

    This product was by far the very best thing about living on planet Earth and I am BEREFT that my Trader Joe’s no longer stocks it. What the heck happened?! Is it just my branch that got rid of this product, or across-the-board? Help me out here, Trader Joe’s. …we need this back!
