Taste test: These potato chips had wiggly, irregular shapes, some large bubbles and a light orange overall color, as the golden yellow chips had some browning and dark orange seasoning.
I crunched in to find that the chips were quite tasty from a nice smoky barbecue seasoning, but the texture did not impress me. There as some crunchiness without the requisite crispness, so the chips just didn't feel right. A crisper feel might have helped to bring out the otherwise excellent barbecue seasoning to make these top-notch chips, but without the good crispness, these chips were pretty average.
Smell test: Very nice smoky hickory smell.
From the package: “Since 1994, we have operated Boulder Chips in Boulder, Colorado. Using a simple family recipe, we kettle-cook select potatoes in small batches using sunflower and/or safflower oil. We use totally natural ingredients, hand-rake every batch, and test chips at every stage of preparation to ensure quality and taste.”
