Maui Style - Maui Onion USA, Hawaii Very strong onion flavor, slightly thicker slices for a stronger crunch. Very delicious.

Takis - Fuego USA Rolled corn chips with lime and chile pepper. Decent taste and actually hot.
Terra - Real Vegetable Chips - Mediterranean USA Deep fried slices of various tubers like taro, sweet potato, batata, parsnip, and yuca. Adequate flavor and crunch, but more starchy than potatoes.

Product Country Notes
Combos - Buffalo Blue Cheese USA It certainly has the flavor of a buffalo wing with bleu cheese dressing, but it's still pretty bland with a salty starchy taste.

Cheetos - Cheddar Jalapeno Crunch USA Adds a hint of jalapeno to Cheetos. Not as hot as Flaming Hot Cheetos, and not as good of a flavor either.
Cheetos - Flaming Hot USA Same crunch as regular Cheetos, but the cheese is replaced with a sweet red chili powder. It causes a nice burn that slowly increases the more you eat. My favorite Cheetos flavor.
