Taste test: After having a great experience trying O'Tori's Coconut-flavored nuggets and seeing that the snacks in this can looked mostly the same (but darker), you might expect another similar experience. However, in this case, that turned out to be an incorrect expectation.
The texture was probably the same, as the nuggets were nicey crisp, but it was hard to notice the texture when the taste was so intense and (in most tasters' opinions) awful. It was a combination of corn, cuttlefish, hot pepper and sugar, and the flavors didn't all peak at quite the same time. It started out sweet and crunchy and kind of weird but not necessarily bad, as the sugar and corn were mostly dominant in the first bite, but then it turned bad when the cuttlefish really hit.
