Taste test: These chips took the tubular, rolled-up tortilla shapes popularized by Takis, though much like the Volteados and Chile-ros flavors from Tortrix, the shapes were less tightly rolled and more irregularly shaped than Takis. Colorwise, their mix of yellow and orange was similar to Doritos. With a promise of a Creole flavoring, it sounded intriguing.
I crunched in to find lots of great strong corn crunch, with a flavor that was surprisingly mild, as it was pretty much the standard nacho cheese flavor, with none of the expected Creole salsa. Great crunch and a good taste, but the special flavor seemed to be absent.

Smell test: Mostly like toasted corn, but some spices with a bit of hot pepper.
