Taste test: These potato chips had wide ripples and a light yellow color on the surfaces, with some small blackish bits scattered throughout.
We crunched in to find a nice crunch and a flavor that didn't so much seem like seasoned steak or even just steak seasoning as it did just plain black pepper. The pepper wasn't as fresh or sharp as lots of other black pepper chips, and there were probably some other spices mix in too, but the black pepper was sufficiently dominant that it was hard to tell what the other ones were. (Oddly, Black Pepper wasn't even listed as one of the ingredients.) Pretty good.
Smell test: Mild black pepper smell.
From the package: "So when we set out to capture the authentic Montreal Steak® flavor, we turned to the masters at Grill Mates®. The bold combination of peppers and garlic on fire-grilled steak is perfectly delivered on our classic ripple chip." ... "Ingredients: Potatoes, Vegetable Oil (contains one or more of the following: Corn, Cottonseed, Soybean, Sunflower), Seasoning (Corn Maltodextrin, Spices, Salt, Yeast Extract, Garlic Powder, Natural Flavor), Salt."
