The Floodgates Have Opened For The Best Snacks In Digbeth

When it comes to bar snacks our lineup needs no introduction. The Floodgate only allows heavy-weight champions in the arena. Notoriously hard to find global sensations that can usually only be found in a few unique locations outside of the USA.

After a few pints of Brooklyn Beer or a couple of ice-cold Pit Pat Pornstar Martinis sometimes only something big on flavour, salt and crunch will cleanse the pallet for round 2.

In the red corner, we have HERR’s Carolina Reaper & Jalapeno, these American crisps (or chips depending on where you are from) are famously known for their classic combination of big flavour & even bigger heat. Perfect to get you salivating before your game of Baseball.

A little foreword from the President/CEO – Ed Herr himself;

When it comes to heat, it is off the chart! The Carolina Reaper is currently the hottest pepper around. Boasting over 1,500,000 Scoville Heat Units (SHU), this mighty pepper sets the standard for hot. Herr’s® has accepted this flavour challenge by combining the heat of the Carolina Reaper pepper with the savoury goodness of our classic cheese curls to bring you the hottest snack item we’ve ever made! I guarantee that your hot heads will not be disappointed. The rest of you, well… you’ve been warned!

In the Blue Corner, we have Rap Snacks the classic snacks from across the pond from our stars & stripe neighbours. CEO James Lindsay has had two passions from day one, there was never any doubt that Lindsay’s career would incorporate both food and music.” As a kid, I considered myself a snack food connoisseur,” Lindsay says. Like some sort of snack-mad scientist, he would often take various types of chips and mix them together in one bag in search of the next great flavour, to keep one step ahead of what was currently on the market.

One of the best sellers is of course Cheddar Bar-b-que, perfectly paired with a pint of Bleachers Beer or a Sliding into Third Cocktail.

Last but not least is one of the hottest snacks in town, it is, of course, Takis These unique rolled tortilla chips are like nothing you have had before. 10/10 on the crunch scale and high on the Scoville scale, these crisps are not for the faint-hearted.

Do you have what it takes to handle the intensity of Takis® rolled tortilla chips? Are you able to stand a crunchy bite of our full-on flavour? Because these are no ordinary corn chips. Oh, no. Takis Chips are only for the strong. The brave. The daring. So open a bag today and Face the Intensity.

So next time you ask yourself, where can I buy Takis tortilla chips, where can I buy rap snacks or where can I buy Herrs crisps remember to look no further than The Floodgate.
