Out of the Blue

We were in the supermarket over the weekend, and spotted these Doritos 1st Degree Burn Blazin' Jalapeno Flavored Tortilla Chips on the shelf, which tempted us, in spite of a general Doritos aversion. I picked up two bags, since there was a sale on them in pairs, but MrsBlue pointed out I missed the 2nd Degree Burn Fiery Buffalo chips, so I swapped one for one of those. When we tried some of the Jalapeno-flavored chips we were flabbergasted by just how hot they were, especially in light of how mild so many so-called hot chips turn out to be. In fact, I exaggerate by saying we tried "some" of them, as I stopped after one. At this point, we're dubious about actually finishing our bag of 1st degree burn chips, much less the 2nd degree burn chips; but at least we avoided the 3rd Degree Burn Scorchin' Habanero, the use of which might actually require medical attention. Maybe I can use them to melt snow on the sidewalk this winter.
