What Can Taste?

I'm a bit puzzled by this wrapper on my Weight Watchers Snack Bar:

Sweet Crisp flavored

Is it sweet-flavored, or is it crisp-flavored? Last I knew, neither sweet nor crisp were flavors. And I don't think that "sweet crisp" is an entity in an of itself.

Sweet is a taste sensation, along with sour, salty, and bitter. It either IS sweet or it ISN'T.

And crisp isn't even a taste; it's a texture. Otherwise, you could have lattice-flavored, smooth-flavored, chunky-flavored...
