Karamucho Hot Chili with Seaweed Potato Chips

Shop for snacks: Buy potato chips at Amazon.com

Taste: These potato chips (which also come in a non-seaweed version) had a light orange color over most of their surfaces, with various sized bits of green seasoning scattered unevenly. We crunched in to find quite a bit of seaweed flavor — nothing subtle about it, this was packed with seaweed. If you like the taste of seaweed, you might be in heaven, but even as someone who doesn't particularly like it, I found this wasn't too bad. During the first few bites, I couldn't notice anything in the way of hot chili, but it did arrive in earnest in the aftertaste, and it kept growing hotter as I ate more chips. Not super-hot, but pretty hot.

Aroma: Mildly seaweed-like, but not in a bad way. Couldn't notice any hot peppers.
