Taste test: These snacks were hollow with a thin outer shell, and they came in several different seafood-themed shapes, including various kins of fish (maybe sharks and whales), crabs, turtles, starfish and squid.
We crunched in to find a light crunch and a nice tangy flavor that wasn't fishy for the most part, but did have occasional hints of fishiness (most likely from the cuttlefish extract that was one of the minor ingredients). Many of our snackers were skeptical of these but ended up liking the taste when they did were willing to try. One person dumped a whole bunch of these onto his cup of tomato soup and enjoyed the combination quite a bit.
