Taste test: This version of Combos had the same shape as usual, a hollow tube filled with cheese, but this time the tube was made from corn, with some salt visible on the exterior.
The texture was definitely different than the pretzel and cracker versions of Combos, as the crumbly tortilla texture was quite nice. The jalapeno cheddar filling tasted good and mixed reasonably well with the taste of the tube, but the flavor was weaker than I wanted and got too drowned out somewhat by the tortilla tube — there really should have been a stronger presence of cheese and heat in the overall flavor.
Smell test: Good jalapeno cheddar smell. Lots of jalapeno.
