Taste test: These fairly large tortilla chips had a wedge shape with a somewhat pale yellow color and sort of a pockmarked surface.
Upon biting in, the texture just didn't seem right, as the chips were kind of flat and un-crisp, as there wasn't any sort of satisfying crunch. The texture was definitely several steps down from your typical tortilla chip. The taste seemed OK at first, as I could taste some corn and some tasty seasonings, though definitely not anything resembling chipotle peppers. There was a slightly hot aftertaste (from the chipotle, I assume), but it was mixed in with kind of an unpleasant aftertaste (from the baked chips). Most of our tasters gave the thumbs down, but a minority of people loved these and ate as many as they could.
Smell test: Smells sort of like tortilla chips, but different. Didn't notice any hot peppers.
From the package: “Made with certified organic corn” ... “So how can these chips be good for me? Guiltless Gourmet Tortilla Chips are baked, not fried. We add just enough oil to make them crisp and help the natural flavors stick. The result is a Crispier Crunch with only 3 grams of fat per serving. Stone Grinding uses the whole corn kernel, so each helping is packed with complex carbohydrates and 2 grams of fiber. By the way, you get 18 big chips per serving, which is plenty to satisfy your crunchy craving with guiltless indulgence.”
