Taste test: These potato chips had surfaces that ranged from yellow to light orange, with very wiggly shapes, bubbles embedded inside and a fairly thick cut.
We like hot stuff, but we're always wary of anything habanero for fear of being over-the-top hot, so we were careful to have a beverage ready before crunching in to these. We tried our first chip (a large, folded-over one) to find that the it was quite loaded with flavor, and although we quickly made use of the beverage (cranberry-grape juice) it wasn't really the flavor we expected. The taste was a very cistrusy heat, with quite a kick, but not just the raw heat of the habanero. Good, but quite different in flavor from your typical habanero chip.
Smell test: A bit of the hot pepper kick, but not too much.
From the package: “Habanero artificially flavored” ... “New Look” ... “Kettle Cooked Potato Chips”
