Taste test: These hollow snacks had a light orange color with several colors of seasoning on the outside surfaces, and they were indeed shaped like bowties.
We crunched in to find a nice light crunch and quite a lot of good flavor that that could easily pass for meat, despite the apparent lack of any actual meat in the Ingredients. We shared the bag with lots of snackers, and everybody liked the taste, but people had different theories about what it tasted like. Some cited meatball parmesan (obviously), while others thought it was more of a pizza-like taste, with some specifically saying they tasted like pizza-flavored Combos. Whatever it tasted like, it tasted good!
