All the Takis Flavors, Ranked

The best Takis flavors are like an intense punch straight to your mouth and I mean that in the best way possible.

If you are alive and live in America, you know (and probably love) Takis. These crunchy, spicy, citrusy rolled tortilla chips are wildly popular and available nearly everywhere in the U.S. They are one of Gen Z’s favorite snacks and were even the star of a popular TikTok food craze. What some people might not realize, however, is that there are so many Takis flavors.

We grabbed every Takis flavor you can currently buy at the grocery store and brought them to the Sporked office for an official Takis flavor taste test. After burning off the inside of our mouths, stomachs, and butts, here are all the Takis flavors ranked from fine to fuego. And yes: There is one Takis flavor that is the best Takis flavor.

Blue Heat!

Takis Blue Heat

I don’t understand Blue Heat Takis. They taste so similar to other Takis flavors but they turn your teeth blue. You can basically only eat these if you’re living in a bunker underground and don’t have to ever see anyone ever again. These stained my entire mouth and hands and, for that, I simply must deduct points.

Guacamole!

Takis Guacamole Takis

Guacamole Takis taste good, but there is something distinctly chemical-y about them. I know all Takis flavors are kind of chemical-y, but these are really chemical-y. Plus, the green color is not appealing to me. It reads more as “Run!” rather than fun, if you get what I’m saying.

Intense Nacho!

Takis Intense Nacho

New Intense Nacho Takis are nice for anyone who likes cheese and zest and crunch, but doesn’t enjoy spice. That being said, I’m not sure why you’re eating Takis if you don’t like spice. What’s the point?! But, if you are that person, give these a try. They are cheesy and have a great crunch.

Dragon Sweet Chili!

Takis Dragon Sweet Chili

If you like Sweet Chili Doritos (one of the best Doritos flavors), you’ll like this new Takis flavor. They have that balance of sweet, salty, spicy, and sour and a delicious soy sauce powder flavor. I also love that they taste so different from all the other Takis flavors, making them super unique to the brand. I think even Takis haters could get into these.

Crunchy Fajitas!

Takis Crunchy Fajitas

These Crunchy Fajita Takis are my favorite take on a Takis flavor. They are a little spicy and super savory, but the sour tang is more gentle than it is in most other Takis products. We all agreed they taste like taco meat in the best way possible. Cumin is kicking in the Takis Crunchy Fajitas seasoning. Not everyone loved this Takis flavor as much as me, but we all agreed that they are unique. And, hey, since I’m writing this list, I am in charge and I say that these belong near the top of the best Takis flavor list!

Nitro!

Takis Nitro

These are red. They’re so red that they look like you should absolutely not eat them, which only makes me want to eat them more. They are an un-forbidden forbidden food. And the only thing stronger than the color is the flavor. These are some of the most citrusy Takis we tried. The lime factor is off the charts in Takis Nitro. If you’re part of the citric acid fan club, grab a bag of these because they are the best Takis flavor for lime lovers.

Fuego!

Takis Fuego

Takis Fuego are the classic Takis flavor. They’re the blueprint. The perfect example of Takis. You simply cannot go wrong with Takis Fuego and that makes them the best Takis flavor. Spice and sourness are perfectly balanced. You can’t improve something that’s already perfect. They’re not for the faint of heart, but they are for the strong of taste buds. In my opinion, nothing can trump the OG. Takis Feugo forever!!!
