Taste test: When I spotted the words "Taro Brittle" on the shelf of one of my favorite snack shops, I had very little idea what that really meant, but visions of peanut brittle did come to mind. I peeled open the package to find a tray filled with what looked like mid-size rectangular crackers, each about 1-5/8 by 2-1/2 inches, with a bumpy, beige surface and many small bubbles embedded inside.
I crunched in to find a good cracker-like feel, not resembling peanut brittle in any way. After eating that first cracker and thinking that it tasted like it was made from wheat, I checked the ingredients and found that the first ingredient was indeed Wheat Flour. (Score one for the Chief Snacks Officer!) The fourth ingredient was where the Taro Powder came in, so it really was a mostly-wheat cracker flavored with taro. There was somewhat of a veggie flavor (presumably taro) in the aftertaste, along with a hint of black pepper. A very nice taste.
One of the snackers to whom we offered these thought that the box said "Taco Brittle" when she first saw it. I don't know what that would be, but it sounds like something fairly awesome.
