Taste test: These snacks had the same basic shape and concept as previous Combos formulations, with a tube-shape outside filled with a soft inner filling.
In this case, the tube was made from corn, with a tortilla chip-like texture (rather than the cracker or pretzel base of other Combos), and the inside was filled with some sort of salsa-flavored concoction. There was an uneven application of salt on the outside of each piece. The texture and taste were good, as the tube was thick but had a nice soft crunch to it, and the filling seemed like salsa-flavored cheese but had some decent kick to it. Pretty good.
Smell test: Wow, a very seriously sharp, strong hot sauce smell. Cleared out my sinuses instantly.
From the package: “Test your taste buds south of the border with Combos® Snacks Zesty Salsa Tortilla. The fresh, Zesty taste of salsa in a Crunchy shell made with stone ground Corn brings together the Tex Mex flavors you love, all in one heaty snack.”
