Taste test: This was another bag I bought in NYC for $3.59, only to find it half full (5 oz. bags should be smaller). Having tasted a lot of salt & pepper chips (Utz still reigns supreme in my book), I was a little disappointed in this. Each chip had a different amount of pepper on the chip, it was very inconsistent. Those that did have a lot of pepper on the chip left a spicy aftertaste in the mouth, but Utz is still the salt & pepper champ to me.
Aroma: A pretty good peppery smell.

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."
