Taste test: Much like the Seaweed Sushi flavor of Stax, these were from Taiwan and broke nearly every rule of Stax: No blue plastic can, but instead a cardboard box enclosing a foil bag. This one promised merely cheese as a flavor, nothing so ambitious as Seaweed Sushi.
Just like the other flavor, when I opened the box and then the bag, I found that many of the crisps had been smashed apart, particularly the ones at the top and bottom of the stack, so it seemed that this packaging was far less effective than the traditional blue can.
The pieces had uniform shapes and lots of bright orange seasoning, with some darker orange spots here and there. I crunched in to find a very brittle crunch and lots of intense, tangy cheese flavor. The mix of potato and cheese was very tasty. All of the broken pieces made it a bit cumbersome to extract them from the package and eat, but the taste was very good once I did.
