Corn Nuts Crunch Mix Buffalo Ranch
Taste test: This mix combined Corn Nuts with three other corn-based snacks — small puffs, tiny triangular tortilla chips and crunchy sticks — while promising a flavor that sounded like it was borrowed from Doritos. The four elements each delivered a distinct kind of crunch, with a very solid one from the Corn Nuts, a crisp and dense one from the sticks, a soft crunch from the tortilla chips and a super soft feel from the small puffs.
So the mix of shapes and textures was nice, but the flavor impressed me less. There was something hot there, remotely but not exactly like Buffalo sauce, without much noticeable ranch taste, all in all not a great flavor.
The puffs and Corn Nuts had distinct looks and somewhat different sizes, but if you didn't look carefully, the two kinds could be confused, which becomes very obvious when you bite into the softest kind when expecting the hardest kind.

Smell test: Kind of weird, maybe some of the Buffalo sauce, not in a good way, and not ranch.
