Fire Balls

No, this isn’t a case of hands not being washed prior to a trip to the bathroom but a review of a delicious snack that could give you a case of cheeto love that would put Britney Spears to shame.

Fire Balls are made by Blair’s Sauces and Snacks, which explains the name. I will never again speak about putting balls in my mouth, but I can’t help popping 3-4 of these suckers in at a time. These habanero & cheddar puffed corn balls are labeled as Medium Heat, but that just makes them that much easier to eat.

A 2oz. bag contains approx. 67 Balls – 310 Calories worth. Not quite enough to spell out Hot Sauce Blog.com – I reckon I’d need another bag just to get the ‘Blog.com’ portion – but ‘Hot Sauce’ was good enough for me.

The Fire Balls are a bit greasier then the other Blair’s Chips, but for cheese puffy things – who really cares? The flavor is great – with just enough habanero heat to ensure that the cheddar flavor isn’t over powering.

The 2oz. bags are perfect for lunch or snack time – just make sure you have plently of napkins around – the ever present cheeto dust will get all over your fingers.
