Taste test: These smallish rice cakes had wiggly surfaces with a somewhat bright orange seasoning that made them look a lot like a cheddar-flavored snack.
But once we crunched in, it was immediately evident that it was not cheddar, as there was quite a kick of chili pepper heat, very tasty, tempered just a bit by sweetness. The pieces were fairly thick and a had a soft crunch and good crispness. There was a mildly hot aftertaste that lingered for a while. Very nice!
