Team Mishry’s Findings 

The texture of these chips hits the bullseye. It is light, airy, non-oily and super crunchy. In terms of the taste, the heat intensifies as you have 3-4 chips and hits you right in the throat. The promised spiciness is delivered, undoubtedly. 

While these align with the flavor tags, they aren’t exceptionally flavorful to keep us constantly munching on them.
