Sun Chips Chili Lime
Taste test: All kinds of Sun Chips have the same great crisp, light texture, and the various flavor generally don't taste all that different. However, I anticipated a noticeably different flavor for this one. I opened the bag to find a fairly typical Sun Chips look, with square shapes bearing wide ripples. The color was a hint darker overall than most Sun Chips, with mostly a mix of orange and yellow but also some sparse dark seasoning bits.
I crunched in to find a typical Sun Chips light crunch and a taste that seemed a bit Doritos Nacho Cheese-like initially, with some mild chili and lime kicking in after a short delay and adding a different tanginess and some heat. It was relatively mild as chili & lime chips go, but still captured the flavor well while making a fairly major departure from other Sun Chips flavors.

Smell test: Fairly typical chili and lime smell.
From the package: “At Sun Chips we believe being different is good. That's why we created tasty, one-of-a-kind chips that take snacking from ho-hum to oh yeah!” ... “The flavors of red chili peppers and lime come together on a delicious whole grain chip for the perfect balance of citrus and spice.” ... “SUNCHIPS and the Chip Configuration are registered trademarks owned by Frito-Lay North America, Inc.”
