Today's Review: Walkers Max Strong Jalapeno And Cheese

Walkers have brought out a trio of flavours that are "perfect with beer", and while I'm not a big beer drinker, I can't turn down a pack of crisps that promise bold flavours. The Max Strong range from the one flame chilli and lime, to the two flame hot chicken wings, and these, the extra hot jalapeno and cheese. Obviously I went with the hottest, I can't resist something that promises to be extra hot, although I'm often disappointed.

Not with these though, wow, these are good. As soon as the first crisp touched my tongue it was hit with an intense wave of heat, a bold chilli flavour that made me instantly go "wow". It barely lets up, and I can still taste it now, ten minutes after eating my last one, to me that's the mark of a great chilli crisp. It may sound like the heat overwhelms the cheese, but that's also ever present in the flavour, a lovely mature cheddar taste that works wonderfully with the jalapeno, making this one awesome bag of crisps. I can't wait to try the others if they're all going to be as good as this.

My rating: 5/5


  1. I tried these last night and as fan of hot foods i can honestly say they are not that hot. I was half expecting them to be toned down but not that much lol prefer doritos hot ones to be honest

    1. Lol doritos aren't anywhere near as hot

    2. I love spicy food as well, and I'm partial to a packet of Chilli Heatwave Doritos (although I don't consider them spicy at all).
      However, these Walkers Jalapeño & Cheese blew me away! I'm no stranger to "hot" curries, but for a snack, these crisps are well worth it. Any packet of crisps that leaves my tongue numb for 10 minutes after I've finished the packet deserves the title of "Max Strong".
      10 out of 10 for these Walkers crisps.

  2. I love spicy foods and can often be found tucking into a Lamb Vindaloo and I am often disappointed by 'Hot' & 'Chilli' Crisps... But I have to agree these give off a decent little kick without compromising on flavour, they do taste just like Cheese & Jalapeno Poppers I get from the Local Kebab shop.
    They do complement beer very well also :-)

  3. Sick! 10 out of 10.

  4. Finally a hot and spicy crisp! Thank you Walkers

  5. Yeah they are amazing but did remove skin in my mouth
