Taste test: This version of Korn Krunchers had an intense orange/red color on the exposed portions of the pretzel interiors, or least on the parts that had the seasoning, as it was a sharp contrast to the very light beige for the small areas that lacked seasoning. There was a more brownish orange for the pretzel exteriors.
We crunched in to find a high level of crunch but a fairly bland chili lime seasoning, at least at first. The flavor did get more intense in the aftertaste and when eating more pieces, but it still wasn't a particularly flavorful chill lime. Not as good as the other Korn Krunchers flavors, Barbeque and Nacho Grande.
