Taste test: These cheese curl-shaped snacks had a mustardy yellow color with some brownish parts.
I crunched in to find a crisp crunch and some unusual spices to start, though fairly mild. It was tasty enough that I ate a bunch more, and when I stopped, the somewhat hot aftertaste was quite different from any other curl-type snacks I've tried. It reminded me most closely of the Lay's Numb & Spicy chips, with their very distinct Sichuan Pepper sensation, but the overall spice level was much lower in this case. If you enjoy trying new spices, try these!
