About Paqui

It all started with handcrafted tortillas. We spent years fine-tuning our recipes, adding original, mouth-watering flavors and using the best ingredients we could find. We hand roasted jalapeños. We juiced fresh cilantro. And we made what many of our customers said were the freshest, most delicious tortillas they’d ever tasted.

Once we had created the perfect tortilla, we set our sights on making the perfect tortilla chip. So, we consulted the experts who gave us our name. Hundreds of years ago, the Aztecs were cooking corn and stone grinding it to make fresh masa. Today, inspired by those classic techniques, we’re now focusing all of our attention on creating the lightest, crispiest tortilla chips around. Add to that our bold, unique flavors like Grilled Habanero, Very Verde Good and Nacho Cheese Especial, and what did we end up with? A whole lot of really happy people. And that’s one more reason why we call ourselves Paqui [pah-kee], the Aztec word meaning “to be happy.”

Food News: Paqui® Launches Carolina Reaper Madness – The World’s Hottest Chip

 

 

 

Paqui Challenges Fans to Join the Reaper Madness With The #OneChipChallenge

 

AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Paqui, part of Amplify Snack Brands and maker of deliciously bold, light and crispy chips with real ingredients, has just announced the availability of the world's hottest chip. Yes, you read that right. Paqui made a chip that is so devilishly and deliciously spicy, it comes as a single chip packaged inside a coffin-shaped box.

"The Paqui Carolina Reaper chip is truly hot as hell. Don't say we didn't warn you," said Jeff Day, Paqui Brand Manager. "Paqui is always looking for ways to deliver bold flavors with real ingredients that push the limits. That led us to creating the world's hottest chip."

 

The limited-release Paqui Carolina Reaper chip has become a nationwide craze, taking over people's mouths and social media feeds, since limited amounts were first released in late September. As the Paqui Carolina Reaper Madness continues to spread, it's now the rest of the country's chance to join in on the scary fun.

Like Paqui's other flavors of chips, including Nacho Cheese Especial and Haunted Ghost Pepper, the Reaper chip gets its legit flavor and heat because it is made with real ingredients. The Carolina Reaper chip is seasoned with real Carolina Reaper pepper, the Guinness Book of World Records holder for Hottest Chili Pepper. By harnessing that heat, the Paqui Carolina Reaper chip delivers such a gripping tidal wave of spiciness that most people can only handle one chip.

"When it comes to our chip flavors, we don't manufacture them in a lab. We go out and find the real deal ingredients. That's what lead us to the Carolina Reaper and its creator, Ed Currie of PuckerButt Pepper Company," said Day. "In order to create the world's hottest chip we needed to find the world's hottest pepper, so we went straight to the expert."

Paqui is encouraging it's bravest of fans to post their reactions to social media by tagging @paquitortillas and including #OneChipChallenge and #sweeps. Those who dare take the #OneChipChallenge will have the chance to get a free bag of Paqui chips, in a flavor of their choice.  All participants are also entered for the chance to win one of three grand prizes including a year supply of Paqui chips or a GoPro HERO4 Silver.

The Paqui Carolina Reaper chip is available for $4.99 at select stores nationwide. To find yours today, please check out the store locator at Paqui.com.

Paqui also offers six bold chip flavors year-round, each capturing real flavors from real ingredients. Paqui flavors include Nacho Cheese Especial, Cool Salsa Verde, Haunted Ghost Pepper, Roasted Jalapeño, Grilled Habanero and Sea Salt Delights.

While the Paqui Carolina Reaper Chip is available only for a limited time, those who can't get enough spice are in luck! Paqui's Haunted Ghost Pepper chips are made with real ghost peppers and are sure to terrify your taste buds.

All of Paqui's chips – including the Carolina Reaper chip – are non-GMO certified, gluten-free and contain no artificial ingredients or preservatives.
