Taste test: These coated peas looked kind of like wasabi peas, except substituting light orange for the green coating.
I grabbed a few pieces and crunched in to find a good solid crunch, not too hard, with lots and lots of spices and a mild heat at first. The heat grew stronger after some delay, and it became pretty hot, but not super-hot. The flavor was pretty much authentic Sriracha, and though I could taste the peas a bit, the spices dominated. Really tasty, particularly if you like the taste of Sriracha sauce.
