This bundle is a good way to test thse two flavours! The garlic flavor was much too salty for me but I love the mala flavor which really had the spicy and ma (numb) kick to it. I'm impressed by how Edens uses whole mushrooms (was expecting it to be sliced into tiny pieces). Because it's vacuum fried, that's probably why the inner texture of the shiitake is also a little dry, so it would be best paired with some drinks or even rice (maybe i'm too Asian). Overall, it's a guilt-free snack and I would definitely buy the bigger pack of 75g mala chips in the future.
