Taste test: This co-branded Herr's/store brand knockoff of Popchips had the same sort of wiggly, flat, slightly cupped shaped that are typical of Popchips, with a light brown color and lots of seasoning powder on the surfaces. The starring grain on the label was Red Beans, but the ingredients revealed that there was actually more Rice Flour than Red Bean Flour.
We crunched in to find a very good crispness and somewhat solid crunch, with a nice tangy mix of spices to start, then a nice kick of tasty, spicy heat in the aftertaste. All of that flavor powder left some serious residue on the fingertips, but the chips were quite flavorful.
Smell test: Mildly spicy cheese smell.
From the package: “Light, Crunchy Bean Snacks” ... “Our Popped Chips have the crispy, satisfying crunch of a potato chip and a taste that's delightful and simply irresistible. For best results, open, eat and enjoy.”
