Takis — the Mexico-based snack maker known for bringing spicy rolled tortilla chips to convenience stores everywhere — is branching out.

The beloved brand has introduced a new line of spicy peanuts now available at retail locations across Texas.

Takis Hot Nuts are available in three super-seasoned flavors: Fuego, Flare and Smokin' Lime, each of which provides a different level of heat and citrus zing.

The new snacks also make use of “double crunch technology,” which Takis sadly didn't elaborate upon in a release announcing its new line.
