Taste test: These potato chips brought the new waffle cut that we first tried in Cape Cod's sea salt flavor to the world of black pepper chips, and our tasters were quite thrilled with the results.
The chips had a golden orange color, plus a good helping of seasoning on the multi-wiggly surfaces. The special cut (like a mid-width rippled chip, but rippled at different angles on top and bottom) made the chips quite crunchy. The seasoning was special as well, as it wasn't just your typical salt & pepper; this one included some hot peppers to go along with the black pepper, resulting in a spicy, rich flavor, plus a hot aftertaste. Our tasters loved these and crunched through the whole bag in short order.
Aroma: Smelled like a baked potato with plenty of black pepper.

From the package: "Our double-sliced waffle cut chips are made for people who love to crunch. Almost like eating two chips at once, the unique waffle cut lets you taste even more real, hearty potato flavor. It also makes these the perfect potato chips to pair with three kinds of pepper seasoning. A careful blend of black, red, and white pepper results in a flavor that's spicy, savory and slightly sweet. It also results in an empty bag."
