Taste test: This snack came in a package that closely resembled a Pringles can and contained fries, but there were nothing like Pringles, nor like any other fries we've tried. The fries were nothing like the thinly sliced potatoes that we usually call potato sticks, and they didn't have the typical fry shape either, as they were fairly wide and flat. Also, they had somewhat wiggly shapes, versus the more typical straight or gently wavy ones. They actually Pringles contained not just potato, but also wheat and tapioca, with wheat listed first — unusual for a "potato" snack. The major change to the package was an extra clear plastic hood on top, containing a small tub of chili dipping sauce.
We crunched into some fries to find a nice crunch and a lot of taste beyond just the potato, as there seemed to be a slightly sweet, somewhat savory coating. The ingredients surprisingly included "Chicken seasoning powder" and we did notice a bit of that in the taste. The chili sauce was on the very mild side, as there was certainly no heat, and just a very mild sweetness. It was OK and didn't detract from the fries, but the fries had a nice flavor on their own, so it might have been nice to have a bolder sauce for those wishing to spice things up. Still, we enjoyed the fries a lot.
