How come there are no Sriracha flavored chips/snacks?

There are plenty of "hot" chips available and even "hot sauce/spice" varieties but why has no one used Sriracha as a flavoring? It seems that these would sell pretty well given the fondness people on this site have for The Rooster.

Imagine:
Andy Capp's Sriracha Fries
Sriracha-flavored pork rinds (I do this on my own but this would add and extra layer of flavor)
Rooster Sauce kettle cooked chips
Pringles with Sriracha
Sriracha peas

The possibilities are endless. If there are any Sriracha chips/snacks out there let me know.

    When I read your topic Sriracha peas immediately came to mind. You have a great idea there!

      when i saw your title, i was gonna say, if pringles does make it, i wouldn't buy it. i'm now getting through a less than stellar "extreme" pringles "blazin' wings" flavor.

      i'd go for crunchy sriracha cheetos, sriracha nacho cheese doritos.

        Funny! I agree about the Pringles but I thought it would come across better than Sriracha Lays preformed/clone/stackable chips-in-a-tube. The Lays version is superior to Pringles but they are not yet as adventurous in the flavors arena.

        I am never going to be able to stop thinking about this now! Sriracha Kettle Cooked? My gaaaawwwd. CDouglas, I don't know whether to praise or curse your idea!

          I'm guessing it would be too picante for the general populace. Plus, you know the awful stuff they put in those processed foods -- by the time they finished screwing with it, it would taste like sriracha plus plastic.

            Came across your post when I was searching for sriracha and wanted to let you know they do make sriracha peas. Brand is called Hapi Snacks and product is Spicy Sriracha Peas. They come in a 4.9 oz can and they are awesome! I buy mine at Uwajimaya here in Seattle, but you can probably find them in any asian or international market. We also pick up sriracha ramen noodles there that are really good too if you like ramen. Enjoy!

              Those sound great. I will definitely keep my eye out for them.

              Thank you.
