Taste test: These potato chips came in small, wiggly shapes and had lots of seasoning on their surfaces for a dull orange color overall. Many of the chips were folded over, the surfaces had lots of bubbles embedded inside, and there was lots of skin along the edges.

I crunched in to find a nice crispness and light crunch, with a surprisingly ordinary and mild barbecue taste. There was nothing bad about it, but after seeing "Kick Butt" in the name of the flavor, I was expecting a much bolder barbecue taste, some heat or both. There was a mild heat in the aftetaste, so maybe that's what "Kick Butt" was referring to, but the heat's strength didn't warrant that name. Still, good chips.

Aroma: Mostly a typical BBQ chips smell, but with a bit of a kick.

Fresh Ontario potatoes are rough-cut, craft-cooked and seasoned to perfection — the result on the goodness scale — our chip's flavour and crunch both measure in the 'extreme'. "
