Tortrix Con Chicharrón
Taste test: This snack mix brought together a combination that we haven't seen before: pork rinds and corn chips, promising a barbecue flavor. The pork rinds had curvy, scoop-like shapes, and the corn chips were kind of like Fritos, but with more variation in shapes and generally less curvature.
I crunched in to find that the corn chips seemed to be seasoned very lightly, with enough seasoning that they didn't taste like plain Fritos, but not enough to have much of a barbecue taste. The pork rinds surprised me with their texture, which was light as air, immediately melting in the mouth. The little seasoning that there was seemed to be reserved for the corn chips. When I tried them together, the contrast of textures was a bit off-putting, as it was just strange to have one strong crunch and another that I could barely even feel. Still, eating them separately when grabbing one chip at a time was enjoyable.
