Taste test: These tortilla chips had an unusual rectangular shape, as the pieces were about an inch wide, and the unbroken ones were over 3 inches long.
They had overall a light beige color, with a whole variety of differently colored seeds embedded inside. The shape made them relatively good for dipping, as the length helped to keep fingers away from the salsa or dip, but there wasn't anything in the way of a scoop shape to help hold onto the object of the dipping. Without dip, the taste of the chips was quite plain, with very little corn flavor and just a bit of taste from the seeds that wasn't particularly interesting. Couldn't taste any pepper at all.
Smell test: Mostly like corn tortilla chips, but definitely a little something from the various seeds inside as well.
From the package: “Special recipe” ... “RW Garcia Savory Dipping Chips are subtly spiced with Himalayan pink salt & Tellicherry cracked pepper. They're delicious right out of the bag, but we also made them long and thin enough to dip into jars of gourmet salsa, bean dip or tapenade. And sturdy enough to hold up to thick guacamole. Because the only way to improve on a great snack is with a great dip.”
