Taste test: This snack mix contained a whole lot of different shapes of pieces, but just about all of them fell into a similar color range of beige-to-light-orange.
The pieces all looked crispy, but when I crunched in, I found that most were more doughy than crispy, except for the really thin ones, which were crisp. There wasn't much in the way of seasoning visible, but it took just one bite to feel the heat, which was intense, along with lots of other tasty spices. Snackers were mixed on the taste. Some enjoyed the taste and the heat, while others didn't like the lack of crispness. One thought the mix tasted like eggs.

Smell test: Nice, more like peanuts than anything else, but there's also definitely some anything else in there.
