Yes, “scorn.” These snacks caught my attention since they were familiar looking like crunchy Cheetos (a snack of which we’ve been on a bit of a kick at home). It was also a snack that interested Matt, which was is always good since I tend to purchase some of the more odd items from Mitsukoshi in Epcot.
There weren’t any clues as to what to expect in terms of spiciness, nor notes of any element of smokiness.
I opened the bag and they didn’t have much “BBQ” scent that we’re used to smelling here in the States. They looked just like Cheetos out of the bag with a light dusting of seasoning.
The texture was identical to Cheetos with a nice crunch, but they had that very distinct sweet corn flavor that Japanese corn snacks tend to have. There was some saltiness, but overall really didn’t have an American BBQ flavor I was hoping to find.
Despite the sweetness, it’s a snack that is enjoyable and great for snacking on with a beer. We’ll definitely finish the bag, but I don’t think I’d pick up another.
Have you tried “Scorn” snacks, or do they sound like something you might try?
