I have to say I'm both amazed by this product and completely surprised. The whole idea of these little crunchy snacks is that unlike normal potato chips they are neither baked nor fried. Apparently popping chips is much better, although I'm not really sure why. They describe the process involving a great deal of temperature and pressure and to me this sounds pretty cool, in fact I'd love to see some video of these being made.

The snack themselves where surprising because I thought I was basically going to be eating a potato flavoured cheesy, or at the very least something with that kind of texture. In fact these are a lot close to the texture of regular potato chips. They're a lot crunchier than I had expected. They taste a little funny but not horrible.

I do find it odd that they're all the same size and basic shape, and that pretty much eliminates the chances of getting a really big or curled up chip (if that's your thing). They're different and not horrible, so if you feel adventurous go for it.
