On the Scoville scale, Blue Takis score 8,000 SHU, which is comparable to mildly spicy jalapeño peppers. In comparison to their spicier counterparts like Fuego Takis, Blue Takis offer a 40% milder heat, making them a suitable choice for those seeking a subtle kick.

The Sourness Factor—A Punch of Taste in Blue Takis

Let’s discuss the actual intense flavor of Blue Takis and their tartness. Blue Heat Takis offers a tangy twist that tickles your taste buds. When you bite into these rolled-up corn tortilla chips, you’ll notice a zesty, sour kick that adds a burst of flavor to each crunch. 

The sourness is like a friendly, citrusy slap on the tongue, not overpowering, but enough to make your mouth water. It’s a pleasant contrast to the heat, which is present but not overwhelming. 

So, if you’re looking for a snack that combines a tanginess with a hint of spice, Blue Heat Takis might be your new go-to munchies!

Instead, they offer a delightful combination of highly tangy but mildly spicy flavors, making them a unique and enjoyable snack option. Whether you like Blue Takis or not depends on your taste preferences.
