Taste: Without looking too carefully at the package, we thought these were going to be pork rinds, but after some additional reading (and eating), that turned out to be quite wrong. The first ingredient was green peas, and there was no pork to be found. When we opened the bag, we found square-cut but curled chips with a light brown color and some bubbles inside. They only very, very loosely resembled pork rinds. We crunched in to find a major explosion of flavor — sweet, oniony and hot peppery. The chips were fairly thick, with a deep-fried feel and a nice crunch. Really tasty, and a total surprise.

Aroma: Sweet, tangy and nice but hard to describe. Remotely like Funyuns, but not really.
