Taste test: These snacks looked to closely follow the model of Takis Fuego, as they were rolled-up tortilla with lots of red seasoning on the surfaces, promising a chili and lime flavor. The red wasn't quite as bright as the red on Takis, but it was still a dark, intense red.
We crunched in to find that they really loaded the tortillas up with flavor, with lots of lime, lots of chili, and increasing levels of heat as we ate more. The flavor was strong and good, and the heat got fairly intense and lingered for a long time in the aftertaste. Bring a beverage or cool dip to counter the heat!
