Orion Sun Hot Spicy

Buy SunChips on Amazon

Taste test: This Korean version of Sun Chips looked a lot like the American ones, with squarish shapes, wide, extra-wavy ripples and various shades of orange/beige.

We crunched in to find that the texture was even more brittle than we've come to expect from Sun Chips, with more of a bubbly, airy crunch. The texture wasn't quite as good, but it was still pretty good. As for the taste, we were expecting lots of hot peppers and spices, because the bag said "Hot Spicy" in pretty big letters right on the front. The chips were flavorful, with a good taste from the various grains, particularly the corn and wheat, and the mild spices added some interest as well. However, as for being hot and spicy, there really wasn't much heat to speak of. There was the slightest of hot aftertastes, barely noticeable, but otherwise these were just mildly tangy — and neither hot nor spicy.
