By now, you’ve probably spent so much time eating out of sheer boredom that you’ve burned through all of your usual go-tos. Maybe you’re at the point where not even the spiciest of snacks provide you with the same fiery thrill that they once did. Truly, it must seem like a hopeless state of affairs.

Thankfully, there’s good news on the horizon for those who need a bit of visual stimuli with their snacking. According to evidence from Instagram snack spotter extraordinaire @CandyHunting and a product listing on Target’s website, it looks like some color-changing Takis will soon be headed to store shelves.

Based on the packaging for these cylindrical tortilla treats, it looks like we’ll be blessed with some Scorpion BBQ-flavored Takis that turn from a dark red to a bright neon blue, as well as a Volcano Queso variety that transitions from orange to green. For some reason, the whole thing reminds me of a crunchy, spicy, tightly-wrapped fruit rollup.

It’s unclear exactly what sort of food science wizardry gets a Taki to change its stripes. It must involve licking the chip in some capacity, given that the bags tout a “new color changing effect” with the image of a tongue that has turned green or blue depending on the limited-edition Taki flavor.

As mentioned, you can expect to find these at retailers like Target someday soon. Their website only has a listing for the Scorpion BBQ flavor at the moment, but you’d have to think they’ll also sell volcano queso because I mean who doesn’t like embarking on a spicy, cheesy adventure like that.

So let this be a lesson out there to other spicy chips: No longer can you ignore the visual component and just make your snack a bright shade of red. We eat with our eyes first, and you’re going to need to step your game up.
