Taste test: These corn-based snacks had tater tot-like shapes similar to Herr’s other snack balls (including s'mores and cotton candy), with mostly an off-white color plus some light beige (in a reverse of the proportions pictured on the bag).
We crunched in to find a nice light, crisp feel with a sweet flavor that wasn't all that different from the cotton candy flavor. Fairly tasty. When we shared them around, some folks couldn't stop eating them, while others had no desire for more after trying just one.
Smell test: Nice sweet smell, kind of cinnamon-like but not entirely, maybe some maple in there too.
From the package: “Gluten free crunchy corn snacks” ... “Experience all of the deliciousness of a carnival classic in each bite. Containing powdered sugar and just the right amount of crunch, Herr's® Funnel Cake snack balls is a take anywhere, enjoy any time snack. In fact, they are so delicious you can almost hear the whir of carnival rides in every bite.”
