Taste test: These are made from pumpkin seeds with some chili spices added.
They're fairly moist and have a sweet taste at first, before the chili powder kicks in as an aftertaste. If you like pumpkin seeds or sunflower seeds, these might be for you. I don't think that these would work in lots of snacking situations, but they're worth a try. The problem is that they're so small that you have to grab several at a time, and yet they're also so small that it's hard to get a good grip on one, so they end up slipping through your fingers and onto the floor.
