Taste test: This store-brand Popchips knockoff made by Herr's had a kind of a brownish-reddish beige color, with wiggly surfaces and cup-like shapes, just like the ones pictured on the bag.
We crunched in to find a good crispness and nice tangy, garlicy taste. After the flavoring wore off, we could taste mostly the beans in the aftertaste, and that wasn't bad either, though it was far less intense than the initial flavor. Pretty good.
Smell test: Very strong mix of peppers and garlic, but mostly the peppers.
From the package: “Light, Crunchy Bean Snacks” ... “Our Popped Chips have the crispy, satisfying crunch of a potato chip and a taste that's delightful and simply irresistible. For best results, open, eat and enjoy.”
