They were hollow. I'm generally baffled by how anyone can make snacks that are hollow, but a close look at these made it pretty obvious that they had made the two sides and then somehow attached them together. I bit in and tasted some nice spices but only a mild heat. There was a pretty good crunch upon biting in, but the crunchiness did seem to vary from one piece to the next. I proceeded to eat about 10 of these Wingers, and the level of spice and heat grew as I ate more, but it still wasn't as hot as promised. Buffalo Nickel makes five different flavors of Wingers, one for each rating on their 1-to-5 Heat Index. These are rated 4, but I would expect a 4/5 heat to be quite a bit hotter.

Smell test: Definitely a sweet smell, sort of fruit. Maybe pineapple. No heat.

From the package: “The original potato wing snack™” ... “Sweet and spicy. And spicy. These are the wings your mother warned you about. Sure, they're a 4 on the Heat Index. But like all Buffalo Nickel™ Wingers, the taste is a full-on explosion.” ... “Buffalo Nickel™ snacks trample the myth that natural snacks can't have steroid-like power ... that they must play second fiddle to their fat-laden, over-salted, artificially flavored cousins in the snack food aisle. Our Wingers aren't satisfied with being tasty. They're not happy until they rock your world.”
