Taste test: These chips were cut into squares and were more curled up than the ones pictured on the bag, and unlike the light pink ones in the picture, the actual chips were kind a yellowish beige, not pink at all.
We crunched in to find a good crispness to the foam-like material, with a somewhat shrimp-like taste on the first bite, then less of a shrimp taste after that, followed by a return of the shrimp in the aftertaste. The main ingredients were tapioca and wheat, but there was actual shrimp too. Our shrimp-chip-sketpical snackers were mixed on these, as most found them tolerable or good, while a minority thought they were amazing. In an unusual verdict for shrimp chips, nobody who was willing to try them complained strongly. We loved the smiling shrimp mascot on the front of the bag, as well as the clever art surrounding the UPC bar code on the back.
