Taste test: These snacks from South Africa looked similar to Fritos, but with rectangular shapes that were about twice as wide, plus a light smattering of fine, dark seasoning on the surfaces.
We crunched in to find a crunch that was a bit more brittle than Fritos, along with a flavor that hardly reminded me of Fritos at all, as the promised barbecue flavor was indeed "beeg" enough to dominate the salty corn taste. It wasn't a particularly hot or spicy barbecue, but it was sweet and tangy and went well with the corn chips. A good snack.
