Taste test: This lime and mint version of Cornitos definitely broke the mold in terms of flavors I'd ever imagined being on a tortilla chip. I opened the bag to find that the chips looked pretty much the same as the other flavors of Cornitos, with triangular shapes, a Doritos-like appearance, a medium yellow color and not much seasoning powder visible.
I crunched in to find a fairly mild mix of Indian spices. Very tasty. I suppose that lime and mint were among them, but if not for the labeling on the bag, neither of those flavors would have really jumped to mind, as they were hardly dominant among the other spices. It was hard to notice any lime, and there was maybe some hint of mintiness but not enough to make me think "mint" much at all. But this was a true original, with a very nice taste!
Smell test: Smells like an Indian food market, but yes, with a hint of lime and a bit of mintiness.
