Taste test: This tube contained three foil packages, each containing a whole bunch of thin, roundish profile, beige-colored sticks. Based on the flames depicted on the package and the fact that we can't read Korean, we were expecting some sort of hot flavor.
We crunched in to find that the heat was not to be, as the flames apparently just meant "baked potato" — the sticks were tasty, but very mildly flavored. The snack that they were most similar to was Pringles Stix, but these were far from a clone of those. The sticks looked kind of like the Pringes Stix, but their texture was quite different, with a very solid crunch, compared with the soft crunch of the Pringles, and while the Pringles were wheat-based (their full name is Pringles Baked Wheat Stix), these were made from processed potato. They had a somewhat salty, slightly sweet potato taste. Fun to eat and tasty. Our snackers were big fans.
