Taste test: These snacks took the same basic form as Popchips, but thanks to the inclusion of peas and beans, they were the most colorful snacks of this type that we've seen. The thin, round crisps looked really good, as the base was rice-based and off-white, but there were lots of green and yellow peas embedded inside, plus some darker spots from the beans.
I crunched in to find a crispy, somewhat solid crunch, more like rice crackers than Popchips, with a noticeable level of salt that brought out the taste of the rice and peas quite nicely. Peas aren't a big part of my diet, as I enjoy pea soup but don't much like eating just plain peas or even peas in a mix of veggies, but this proved to be a perfectly enjoyable way to eat my peas.
Smell test: Smells mostly like peas, maybe a hint of beans.
From the package: “In this light and airy crisp, discover a mosaic of rice, green and yellow peas, and black beans perfectly seasoned for a mouthwatering snacking adventure.”
