Taste test: These snacks had a fairly bright yellow-orange color and thick fry-like shapes, with roughly rectangular profiles and a surface texture that looked a lot like Andy Capp's Fries. The pieces were bigger than Andy Capp's, though. Like Andy Capp's, they were made primarily from corn, but in this case there was some wheat included too.
We crunched in to find a weird feel. The very initial crunch was light, crisp and nice, but just after that there was a weird chewiness. The taste was pretty good, with a mild sweet ketchup flavor. But that odd feel kept coming back with every additional piece, which did detract from the experience. The bag was impressive, offering information in an impressive nine different languages — none of them English, though, but the import label included an English translation.
