Taste test: These snacks were made from peas and corn, and they had a spiral shape similar to rotini pasta, similar to corn-based snacks such as Tom's Mega Twisters (but smaller) or Fritos Flavor Twists (but more loosely wound). The pieces were generally light orange, with lighlights from a darker orange seasoning.
I crunched in to find that the texture was crunchier than any of those other ones, and surprisingly, I didn't really taste much in the way of pea, except maybe a hint every once in a while. There was a bit of cheese and a bit more spicy heat, especially in the aftertaste. Not super-flavorful, but still tasty and pretty good.

Smell test: Almost like a chili and lime smell, but not quite.
From the package: “Chícharos Crujientes Queso Caliente” ... “Pea crisps with a twist” ... “Cadina Pea Crunchies are made from All Natural Peas! Crunchy and simply irresistible! A delicious snack for all to enjoy.”
