Taste test: This flavor of Lay's (not to be confused with the non-spicy Ketchup flavor available in Canada) had some orange-red seasoning unevenly applied across the chips (though less of this seasoning than the picture on the bag showed), plus some green spots. Our tasters crunched in to find a sweet and tangy ketchup flavor to start with. It was a good ketchup taste, but not really all that different from other ketchup chips. Soon thereafter, the "spicy" part of this flavor hit, and though I couldn't specifically taste jalapeño, there were definitely some sort of hot peppers that contributed to a burn in the aftertaste. It would have been even nicer if those extra spices had hit before the aftertaste too, but these were pretty good chips anyway.

Aroma: Smells like regular ketchup, nothing particularly spicy about it.

From the package: "It all starts with farm-fresh potatoes, then our chefs add a delicious blend of jalapeno and black pepper, rich blended tomato, and all natural seasoning for the bold and zippy taste of spicy ketchup."
