Takis Guacamole and Takis Crunchy Fajita

Not too long ago I did an entry on Takis Fuego and mentioned that perhaps their guacamole flavor would taste better. I decided to finally put that up to the test and see if that was true. I also noticed that there were other flavors of Takis I had missed out on, so I decided to pick up Takis Crunchy Fajita as well.

A bag of Takis Guacamole. I like the silver bag, but the chip, or taco as they call it on the bag, is a bit odd colored

When I opened the bag the first smell I thought of Salsa Verde Doritos. It had a green pepper and lime scent to it. The flavor, to be quite honest, was disappointing. It seemed to lack flavor and after eating a few, they tasted just like corn chips. I didn't detect any sort of guacamole flavor, which was disappointing. I would call this Salsa Verde Doritos Lite. Maybe I came in expecting too much, but advertising guacamole automatically raises my hopes.

Takis Guacamole: 6/10

Continuing, as I mentioned before, I also purchased Takis Crunchy Fajita.

When I think of fajitas I think of an iron skillet full of meat and vegetables. The bag just doesn't really scream that to me. It's rather generic, but it's the contents of the bag, not the bag itself that makes the snack

When I opened this bag I thought of Doritos as well. It wasn't necessarily Salsa Verde, but I definitely thought of Doritos. I thought that, after my last misadventure, I would be disappointed again. However, this one was probably the best of the three flavors I tried. It wasn't too sour like Takis Fuego and had much more flavor than Takis Guacamole. After eating a few, there was a bit of a heat coming from the chip, but this wasn't meant to be hot anyway (I don't think). The flavor was a good mix of salty, spicy, and slightly tart. I still have one more flavor to go, but so far Crunchy Fajita is in the lead.

Takis Crunchy Fajita: 7/10
