Taste test: These tubular snacks looked like little pieces of ziti, on the short side, but with a red seasoning much like the color you'd see in pasta sauce.
I grabbed the first piece and could feel that there was a lot of seasoning powder on the surface, then crunched in to find a very solid crunch with still a reasonably light feel and a good crispness, with quite a bit of flavor. The primary ingredients were beans and rice, but mostly we could taste the vegetable and other spices. Very tasty, with lots of tomato in addition to the roasted red pepper. We shared these with lots of snackers as they enjoyed some beer, and people were very impressed by the texture and taste.
Smell test: Really does smell like roasted tomato with red peppers.
