Now that you know what it is, on to the review! (;

I never tried this before, but I kept an opened mind and hyped myself into believing this would be the most amazing snack ever. Big mistake.

I managed to break the bag open after struggling with it for 10 minutes. Once again, I am left disappointed by the air and chip ratio. Sigh. A strong whiff of a fresh garden of vegetables hit me. I didn't smell any note of Cinnamon. Hm. I thought perhaps I wasn't close enough to the bag, and so, I shoved my face into it, in hopes of smelling the delicious cinnamon. Second Mistake.

My face automatically cringed. Uuh, now THAT is NOT a pleasant smell. I still have NO idea what gave it such a strong sour note.

The chip itself is super hard, and brownish in coloring. I guess the cinnamon? The chip is crunchy and crackles nicely under the pressure of your teeth. A weird strong apple flavor is present, however I don't taste the cinnamon. Perhaps that strange taste that hits me afterwards is it? Who knows. Did NOT like this product at all. neither did my brother. My mom loved these so it didn't go to waste.

Overall: Personally, this was the worst item in Decembers Goodies box.
