Honest Review of Trader Joe’s Takis
Trader Joe’s Takis are fantastic! The chili lime flavor really comes through without being overly spicy. Traditional Takis can have a lingering punch of spice that can be over powering to some. Both brands are very similar in the fact that they are a rolled tortilla with chili lime seasoning. Personally, I’m gong to stick to the TJ’s version which has less preservatives and no dyes.
Keep an eye out for this small pink and yellow bag filled with crunchy deliciousness!

Why TJ’s version is the best
These tantalizing rolled corn tortilla chips are gluten-free and have 0 grams of added sugar. I’m really excited to share that these chips obtain their vivid color from vegetable juice, paprika, and turmeric extract. The traditional Takis contain artificial food dye, something our family attempts to avoid when possible.
