Taste test: These potato chips were indeed dark as their name indicated, though there was a lot of color variation from one chip to the next, and even within each chip. Our hungry snackers crunched in to find some the best potato chips they've eaten, as they were light, incredibly crisp with a delicate crunch, and so loaded with great potato taste that the flavor just thrilled. Dark russet potato chips tend to stand out from the crowd of potato chips, but these stood out even from the crowd of dark russet chips. Great!
Aroma: Wow, really, really nice potato smell.
