My husband and I used to purchase the Vlasic brand "Hot" jalapeno peppers but they are no longer carried in any of the stores in my area. These La Costena jalapeno peppers now take up 99% of the jalapeno section at both Walmart and Kroger, so we figured we'd try them out. These peppers do not have a good flavor in my opinion and they have next to no heat compared to the Vlasic brand. I really couldn't recommend them to anyone. I just didn't enjoy them at all and neither did my husband. This brand is crunchy, I can give them that much, but when it comes to heat and flavor, they just are sub-par compared to Vlasic. For anyone trying to find Vlasic, at this time they are still being carried on walmart.com, so you can purchase them through here.
