If you love the smoky heat of Red Hot Riplets potato chips — and seriously, is there anyone in St. Louis who doesn't? — this might come as the best news of 2017: You can now buy Riplets' signature seasoning by the jar.
The possibilities are endless. Sprinkle it on your potatoes! Douse it upon chicken! You can even mimic Byrd & Barrel and use it to rim your bloody mary ... although it might not taste quite as good without the restaurant's signature garnish, a fried chicken slider.Basically: You'll never again have to lick your fingers or the bottom of an empty bag of chips (guilty!) to get that one last trace of Riplets' ravishing red dust. You can simply shake your li'l seasoning jar and let the flavor fly.
