Taste test: These corn-based snacks were shaped kind of like crinkle-cut fries, but with shapes that were more irregular and less cleanly defined than the ones pictured on the bag. They had lots of orange seasoning on their surfaces.
We crunched in to find a somewhat dense feel, remotely like cheese puffs but different, with a cheese flavor that was tasty but not a real standout.
Smell test: Maybe more tomatoey than cheesy.
