The word: Kettle-cooked potato chips fried in peanut oil and doused with "secret" spices from Louisiana.
Tasting notes: These have a bit of a kick, but aren't atomically hot, with a paprika-tinged finish. Good crunch, too.
Buy it again? Yes, and probably with a bag or three of the similar Cajun Crawtator flavor as well.
Extra credit: Take our cue and have a Louisiana-style throwdown with authentic po boys, seafood platters, and bags of Zapp's at the newly opened Queen's in the Portola District.
