Taste test: This version of the Fox Family Potato Chips had the same great texture as the salt and pepper flavor but a much different and more intense flavoring.
It was not a traditional barbecue chips flavoring at all, but rather just a hot sauce (specifically, cayenne pepper) flavor. The heat was fairly strong in the aftertaste. The underlying chips had a russet chips type of feel to them, very crisp with a nice crunch and nice potato taste. I don't think the hot sauce did much to enhance the flavor of the underlying chips, which really stood out on its own in those (nearly pepper-free) salt and pepper ones. Still, our tasters liked these too and ate their way through the bag very quickly.
Smell test: Good potato smell.
From the package: “Potatoes have been a long-standing tradition in the Fox Family since the 1800's and are still the #1 product of Northern Maine Farmers. Rhett Fox, creator of Fox Family Potato Chips, began producing the mouthwatering potato chips in the late 90's. He started out very small — unable to supply the demand, but Fox had a dream. With encouragement from his father, he was determined to build a successful chip company and supply the demand for Fox Family Potato Chips.” ... “Prepared By Hand To Ensure The Best Best Quality.” ... ” 'Potato' Chips That Taste The Way Mother Nature Intended.”
