Taste test: This snack seemed like a bit of an enigma at first, as they were billed as "Italian Potato Chips" but actually came from Korea, and just one quick look at the bag made it clear that they were actually shaped like fries, not potato chips. Perhaps they were supposed to look like pasta, hence the Italian connection. Regardless of any of that, once we finished being entertained by the very happy many on the front of the bag, we opened it to find square-profile, hollow fries with just a bit of orange-colored seasoning.
We crunched in to find a nice crispness and tasty flavor that was kind of like a hot and sweet chili sauce, and it was really quite delicious. The mix of hot, sweet and salty made it hard to avoid going back to the bag for more.
