Pu-Thai Black Pepper Flavor
Taste test: These snacks were shaped like crabs but promised to have a black pepper flavoring on the wheat and tapioca base, so the seafood was evidently just a shape, not a flavor here (and there was no fish in the ingredients, though it was was listed among the allergens). The crisps had shapes fairly similar to the ones pictured on the bag, but the claws were shorter than pictured. The color was a pale beige, not quite the mustardy yellow pictured. There did seem to be some light powder on the surfaces, plus some very sparse small dark bits, which were presumably the black pepper.
I crunched in to find a great light, crisp feel and a really nice taste, a great combination of potato and mild spices, including some black pepper. The pepper arrived way more strongly in the aftertaste, with a definitely black pepper kick, plus some hot peppers to go along with it. Very good!

Smell test: Not peppery at all. Fairly standard Asian potato crisps smell.
