Taste test: These small, fish-shaped cookies didn't look like they should contain strawberry, as there was nothing pink about them. Each piece had one side flat, the other curved and featuring an eye and mouth, and a smattering of white powder on the surface.
We crunched in to find a good, mildly crunchy cookie texture, with a good sweet (but not too sweet) strawberry shortcake taste. The lack of any pink for a snack like this was a bit unusual, but the strawberry was definitely there. The color is fine if you're going to eat them out of the bag, but if you poured them into a bowl to serve them to company, nobody would probably know that they were supposed to be strawberry, so unsuspecting snackers would be in for a surprise.
