I can't even tell these are barbecue as the flavor isn't super pronounced but I love that about these. The regular flavor is too bland sometimes and the spicy flavor isn't always what you want but these are perfect and always hit the spot. I am not a fan of barbecue flavored things but these have a unique, not too sweet taste. They are light as air.. almost and don't get stuck in your teeth. There is also a nice decent amount in your bag when you open them, and you can see right into the bag if you feel unsure. Overall good snack, lower in cals than some and just perfect for one person. Pro tip: eat with a slim jim or your favorite meat stick product for a perfect pair!
