Taste test: These large, quarter-circle tortilla chips had a light yellowish beige color, with somewhat wiggly shapes and lots of bubble-bumps on the surfaces.
I crunched in to find a strong crunch and a lot of salty corn flavor, but the feel wasn't quite as crisp as I would like. Since the bag encouraged microwaving — something we've never before seen on a bag of tortilla chips — I did just that, first for the recommended 30 seconds, and then for an additional 45 seconds. In the first case, it did produce warm chips, but they didn't seem any crisper. After the second warmup, the chips were quite noticeably warmer, but they still didn't get any crisper.
Decent chips, but even with microwaving, they still didn't have that fresh restaurant crunch.

Smell test: Good corn tortilla chips smell.
From the package: “Cut from whole corn tortillas” ... “Microwaveable bag!” ... “In the 1940's, Nola and her family immigrated to New Orleans. While she enjoyed the foods that this great city had to offer, she longed for the simple meals from back home. She started making handmade tortillas to recreate family favorites such as tacos and burritos. Word soon spread around the neighborhood of Nola's tasty Latin creations; neighbors and friends began asking Nola to cook for them, and she happily obliged. But, no matter how many or whom she cooked for, she never strayed from her original recipes.” ... “Ingredients: Ground corn, coconut oil, sea salt, lime.”
