Taste test: This Chinese version of Pringles (not to be confused with Smokin' Hot Ranch, Fiery Hot or Hot & Spicy Wonton) had just a light coating of orange seasoning, mostly on one side of the crisps.
The heat was surprisingly mild at first, considering the can's illustration of chili peppers jumping through a ring of fire — and how many spices (including some capsicum extract) were listed in the ingredients. The heat did grow stronger after eating several crisps in a row, but the flavoring also left sort of a greasy feeling in my mouth by that point. Our tasters weren't terribly impressed.

Smell test: Kind of weird. Not really hot or spicy, but sort of tangy.
