Curvee Puffs Sea Salt & Umami Flavor

Taste test: These puffs had the same scoop-like shapes as the cheese flavor, with a pale yellow color. The word "Umami" was a new one to me, so I googled it to find that Wikipedia says it means savory, like a broth or a cooked meat.

I crunched in to find a nice dense, crisp feel and a taste that was consistent with that definition of Umami, very high on the savory scale, with some salt but not a whole lot of it to taste. The taste could well be compared to a soup broth, and although it did contain fish, it didn't taste fishy. Eating a lot of these puffs could make you very thirsty.
