Taste test: This snack came in a thin cardboard box that enclosed a foil wrapper, and it held a stack of uniformly shaped, rippled, golden yellow potato crisps. The crisps weren't shaped like other uniformly shaped shacks, as they had a flat overall shape (though rippled) and were sort of roundish, but with an indentation at one end, kind of like the top of an apple (though they were made from potato).
We crunched in to find a nice light crunch, with a lots of potato flavor and a nice hint of cheese and maybe other mild spices. Very tasty.
The translated ingredients on the import label seemed a bit suspect, as they were identical to the ones on the Original flavor of Yegam, though it's hard to know which one was probably wrong. We were surprised that the "Original" flavor contained Shrimp Extract, but we were also surprised that the Cheese flavor contained Shrimp Extract — and not cheese.
