Taste test: This miniaturized version of Takis came in a small bag that contained quite a few pieces, each bearing the same intense red color as the full-sized Takis Fuego. Each piece was rolled very tightly, and the lengths varied a bit but averaged about an inch and a half.
I crunched in to find a nice solid crunch and a middling level of heat to go with a very zesty chili and lime flavor. The heat got more intense as I ate more, culminating in finishing the whole bag with some clearer sinuses. Not super-super hot, but hot enough to seek out a beverage. Very flavorful, very good.

Smell test: Mild hot pepper and corn smell.
