Taste test: These potato chips had a very long list of Ingredients for an "original" potato chip flavor. When I opened the bag, I found pale yellow potato chips with gentle curves and no noticeable seasoning, so they looked like regular potato chips.
I crunched in to find that they definitely didn't taste like regular potato chips, particularly on the very first bite. There was clearly something else than just salt and potato that initially hit my tongue, with a bit of sugary sweetness and some other tastes, including maybe a hint of something fishy. The potato was more noticeable after that, but the damage was done — these tasted a bit weird. I wonder why they couldn't stick to the standard formula for a standard potato chip.
Smell test: Nice rich potato smell.
From the package: “Ingredients: potato, refined vegetable oil, potato flavor seasoning (maltodextrin, salt, potato flakes, MSG, food flavor (contains milk products), spices, silicon dioxide, aspartame (contains phenylalanine)).” ... “Product of China”
