Taste test: These potato chips had a light yellow color with some browning in places, plus lots of skin around the edges. The chips were somewhat wiggly, with many irregular shapes and a lot of small chips. They tasted very good, with lots of potato taste and a good helping of salt (despite the "lightly salted" claim on the bag). Our tasters enjoyed them a lot alongside some beers.

Aroma: Typical smell of kettle-cooked chips, potatoey and oily.

From the package: "Who says they don't make them like they used to? When confronted with a whiny diner who wan't happy with the cut of his fries, Chef George Crum responded like a true American. He went back to the kitchen and came out with the world's first batch of potato chips. That was 1853. And no one has complained since. Today the ingenious simplicity of Crum's creation lives on in every bag of 1853 Kettle Cooked Chips. We start with farm-selected potatoes, slice them thick, and cooked them slow in small batches. The result is a chip that delivers hearty potato flavor and a satisfying crunch that George would undoubtedly be proud to call his own." ... "sliced extra thick" ... "lightly salted"
