Taste test: These snacks looked similar to Popchips, with a slightly cupped shaped for most pieces, and the surfaces were light gray in color. There was just a bit of seasoning powder visible. We crunched in to find a good crispness and a solid, light crunch. We've eaten many potato-based snacks that were flavored with both jalapeño and cheddar, but the taste here was very different. The taste of the underlying bean chips was most noticeable on the first few bites, with little evidence of heat or cheese; it was mostly a mild bean taste. The heat came along in the aftertaste — not a clear jalapeño flavor, but mildly hot and reasonably tasty.
Aroma: Mild smell, maybe like beans. Not really any jalapeño or white cheddar.
