Pumpkin Tortilla Chips
I'm not a huge tortilla chip eater, so when I buy tortilla chips I usually just get the standard salted variety, but I saw these at the same time that I was picking up some Fall Harvest Salsa, so I decided to give them a try. The flavor has a pumpkin-y savory and salty taste, but with the added hint of cinnamon and nutmeg. I find this a little strange, but it actually goes pretty well with the Fall Harvest Salsa. The problem is after you run out of Fall Harvest Salsa, when the number of things these go well with becomes limited. The description from TJ's says that you could use these with any kind of salsa, but unless it's a heavily fruit-based salsa, I'm not sure the cinnamon and nutmeg would really work with it. I'm actually skeptical of how well a regular fruit-based salsa would work with these anyway. Based just on their flavor and how well they go with the Fall Harvest Salsa, I'd give them a 7, but based on how un-versatile they are, I'd have to give them a 6, so I averaged the score out to a 6.5 out of 10.
