Taste test: These potato chips had a strong yellow color, with wiggly shapes and lots of bubbles embedded inside. We crunched in to find a flavor that combined habanero peppers with some other stuff, resulting in kind of a citrusy taste that was tangy and fairly hot. It started out with more mild heat and strong flavor, then they switched roles with a strong burn in the aftertaste.
There were actually no hot peppers of any kind specified in the ingredients, but still a nice hot kick here!
Smell test: Strong habanero smell, made my mouth water.
