Taste test: These are kind of like cheese curls (such as Crunchy Cheetos) except without the cheese. So instead of a potentially dangerous level of cheese, you taste the toasted corn of the curl itself. In concept, it doesn't sound that good, but in reality the taste is quite nice. The texture could be better — I wish these were crisper and a little bit crunchier — but overall pretty good.
Aroma: Nice smell, a bit unusual, similar to some Asian chips.
