Taste test: This variation of Sun Chips (with a slightly different name) had the same general shape and size as Sun Chips, with a similar 3 ripples per chip, at least when I gave them a quick look. But a closer look revealed more of a dense foam type of structure molded into the familiar Sun Chips shape, so it was different than the thinner, more brittle standard Sun Chips.
I crunched in and immediately noticed the seaweed taste above all else, and though I'm not a big fan of seaweed, and particularly don't like the taste of seaweed strips, this taste was not as bad as I imagine it could have been. The texture was indeed different too, as it was kind of a dense-but-airy foam with a different crunch than Sun Chips — not quite as good as Sun Chips, with their nice light crunch, but not bad either. When I shared the bag with several other snackers, they all liked these chips quite a bit.
