Taste test: These are fairly hot chips. The heat is moderate when you're eating the first chip, but it kicks up a notch during the aftertaste and keeps growing as you eat subsequent chips. It's not painfully hot for the true lover of hot chips, but hot enough that most people would seek out a cold beverage. The aftertaste linger for quite a while. Besides the heat, there's nothing really special about the flavor of these chips.
Aroma: A hot smell, pretty good. Makes your mouth water.

From the package: "According to culinary legend, the potato chip originated in 1853 at a fashionable New York restaurant when railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt sent his fried potatoes back to the kitchen, complaining they were too thick. Annoyed, chef George Crum scornfully sliced some potatoes into a kettle of oil and fried them to a crisp. The result was a hit and the potato chip was born. Today our family operates the Boulder Potato Company in Boulder, Colorado. Using a simple family recipe, we kettle-cook select potatoes in small batches using high monosaturated sunflower and/or safflower oil, both of which are extremely low in saturated fat. We use totally natural ingredients, hand-rake every batch, and test chips at every stage of preparation to ensure quality and taste."
