Takis are small Mexican-inspired corn snacks, made by Frito-Lay, that have an interesting and spicy flavor. There are hot flavors, as well as other flavors such as Sour Cream & Onion. In this guide we’ll be reviewing 8 of the best Takis flavors that you can currently buy at your local grocery store.
What Is Takis?
Takis are a popular snack food that originated in Mexico. They are made by the Takis Company and come in a variety of flavors. Some are spicy, others are sweet, but they all have a unique flavor that’s difficult to describe.
Takis are sold in small bags with a few pieces per bag. The most common flavors are lime and chili pepper. There are also lime and chili pepper mixed with habanero peppers, which is one of the hottest peppers in the world.
The company has created limited edition takis flavors such as mango and pineapple, tamarind fruit, lemon-lime soda and even bacon!
Takis was invented by a Mexican businessman named Carlos Abedrop who was looking for something new to sell at his grocery store when he was young boy. He eventually decided on chips made out of fried dough mixed with powdered cheese, guava jelly and other ingredients that were sold at his corner store in Mexico City.
The name “takis” comes from the word “tacos,” which is Spanish for “small taco.” It’s also similar to how Doritos got their name because they’re shaped like little tortilla chips or tacos (depending on how you look at it).
