Taste test: These potato chips looked somewhat like your typical kettle-cooked chips, with a wiggly shape, a medium yellow color and some more orangey bands of color toward the edges of some of the chips.

But when I crunched in, I found the taste and texture to be much different than many other kettle-style chips, as the crunch was a soft one and the feel was very moist and oily. Several of our tasters compared the taste to KFC chicken. Another taster said it had the oily feel of potato sticks. It was definitely a major change in taste and texture from both conventional potato chips and most of the kettle-cooked varieties we've snacked on.

Smell test: Sort of potatoey, but also a bit like powdered donuts.

From the package: “We at Hartley's pride ourselves on the quality of our 'Kettle Cooked' potato chips. Since 1935 when that first batch of chips was fried by Mr. & Mrs. J. Irvin Hartley, the quality remains the same. So pick up a bag today of 'The Original Kettle Cooked Potato Chips.' ” ... “Ingredients: Potatoes, Vegetable Shortening (Cottonseed and/or Soybean) and Salt.”
