Taste test: These were a lot like Terra chips, with the same sorts of exotic vegetables and a similar flavor.
Tastee says they vary the vegetables seasonally, and this bag seemed to contain just taro, red taro and sweet potato. It tasted good, but taro chips are always a bit gamey, plus there weren't many sweet potato chips in this bag, and they were not all that crisp. Terra chips generally include a wider variety of vegetables in the bag, with several different textures, providing some balance for the taro chips.
