Taste test: These chips surprised us in quite a few ways, the first of which was the sheer size of the bag.
It was a 20-oz. behemoth, as large as any snack bag we've ever seen. The next surprise was the taste of the chips. As the first-ever pumpkin seed tortilla chips we've even heard of, we didn't know what to expect, but the best guess was that it would be some mix of tortilla chips and salted pumpkin seeds. That turned out to be way off the mark. Pumpkin pulp actually came before pumpkin seeds in the ingredients, and we could certainly taste it. The large, quarter-circle chips had irregular surfaces with a fairly dark color, sort of pumpkin pie-color, and the taste was a mix of sweet and salty. The mild pumpkin taste was more dominant than the corn, despite the fact that corn was before pumpkin in the ingredients. Our tasters were really quite thrilled, as people gave lots of enthusiastic thumbs-ups. Although our panel of post-road-race tasters didn't finish the enormous bag, they came a lot closer than we thought they would.
Smell test: Smells like pumpkin pie. Great!
