Taste test: These potato chips, introduced along with a Turkey & Gravy flavor, had generally a golden yellow color, with the same wiggly shapes, bubbles and folded-over chips typical of kettle-cooked chips. There was no visible seasoning on the surfaces.
We crunched in to find a sweet taste that was a whole lot like pumpkin pie on the first bite. It wasn't the strongest flavor, so the pumpkin pie taste didn't last long, but after that, there was still a very good potato taste. Our snackers were mixed in their reactions, as some just found the idea of sugar on a potato chip to be weird, but most agreed that the taste was a lot like pumpkin pie. A stronger pumpkin pie flavor would have helped. These were OK, but the turkey ones were far better.
Aroma: Not that strong, but it really did smell like pumpkin pie.
