On a recent trip to an amusement park with my family, we stopped in at a convenience store to load up on snacks for the long drive. While perusing the choices in the snack food aisle, I spotted Jalapeno Cheddar Tortilla Combos. I remembered clearly when Combos were all the rage in snack foods. A bite size pretzel shell with a variety of soft fillers, Combos were at one time the snack food to have in your lunch bag. My love for spicy food and a fond memory of how much I used to enjoy this particular brand of snacks led me to purchase this product and give it a try. Read on to see what I thought of Jalapeno Cheddar Tortilla Combos.
Jalapeno Cheddar Tortilla Combos are packaged in small, six point three ounce bags. I paid $2.79 for this small bag, which was a little costly for the size of the bag, but buying snacks at convenience stores comes with a price. I am quite sure these snacks can be purchased at grocery stores or discount department stores for less. The outside of the bag highlights the fact that these snacks are oven baked and made with stone ground corn. The picture on the front emphasizes a jalapeno pepper, promising a zesty and spicy snack.
Each one ounce serving of Jalapeno Cheddar Tortilla Combos contains one hundred and forty calories. There is three grams of Saturated Fat, with zero grams of Trans Fat. There is seventeen grams of Total Carbohydrate, one gram of Dietary Fiber, four grams of Sugar and two grams of Protein. There is also four percent of the daily recommended value of Calcium in each one third of a cup serving. If you are concerned about your daily Sodium intake, you should certainly partake of this product in strict moderation as each serving contains three hundred and ten milligrams of Sodium, which is equal to thirteen percent of the daily recommended amount.
After purchasing Jalapeno Cheddar Tortilla Combos, I couldn’t wait to give this product a try. I opened the bag and placed my first pretzel snack in my mouth. From the very first bite, I was immediately taken with the heat and spiciness of this snack. The jalapeno flavor was extremely strong and flavorful. The cheddar cheese filling was soft and creamy and the taste of the cheese beautifully complemented the jalapeno pepper. The crunch of the pretzel combined with the smooth creaminess of the cheese and the punch of the jalapeno pepper was a delicious combination that added up to a very enjoyable snack.
If you love hot and spicy foods and thoroughly enjoy a flavorful and zesty snack, you will certainly enjoy Jalapeno Cheddar Tortilla Combos. I was completely satisfied by this snack and definitely plan on buying it again.
