Taste test: These potato chips had gently curving shapes with various shades of golden yellow, with very minimal seasoning powder visible, so they looked a lot like Copico's original flavor.
We crunched in to find a soft crunch and a fairly mild flavor to start, more tangy than fishy, with increasing heat arriving for the aftertaste. The flavor reminded us of Old Bay at times, though the mildness of spices and heat distinguished this flavor from that. Pretty good.
Smell test: Some spices similar to Old Bay, with maybe a bit more actual fishiness than Old Bay-flavored chips.
