Wise produced a variety of chips called Crazy Calypso. And they were delish. And then they went off the market :(

But! Later Wise produced an extremely similar flavor called Mambo Mania. These were also delish, and may have actually just been the first chips with a new name. Those too, alas, went off the market.

Since then, I've spent a ridiculous amount of energy trying to find a chip with a similar flavor profile, to no avail. But if anybody ever produces one, I'm going to stock up.

Nomnomnom.

Crazy Calypso? Ooh, what was in those? I'm imagining thyme and hot pepper and mango and garlic... and now I'm hungry, darn it.

Okay, yum! Now you've got me wishing I could find those around here, if they existed anymore... darn, darn.

BUT, someone who tried it included the ingredients list on their blog...maybe from there you can fiddle with it?

Hmm, http://www.inthe80s.com/food/calypsochips0.shtml also says: "Zapps Voodoo chips are the same". (And those appear to be for sale, including at Walmart, at least online.)

Pringles briefly had a flavor called Salsa Verde, which was fabulous. Then it disappeared. Some time later they put out one called Spicy Guacamole, which was (as far as we could tell) the same flavor re-branded for people who don't understand Tex-Mex. I think it's still out there, but its availability is very random, and no store near us has ever stocked it. We have to look for it while we're traveling.
