Taste test: These potato chips looked much like the original (non-hot) Old Bay potato chips from Herr's, with an orange color overall and lots of dark seasoning all over the surfaces. We've tried quite a few variations on Old Bay seasoned potato chips, but this was the first one to combine that flavor with hot sauce.
We crunched in to find lots of intense Old Bay taste, not noticeably hot at first, but some moderate heat arrived in the aftertaste and lingered for quite a while. Tasty!
Smell test: Strong Old Bay smell.
From the package: “When we heard the makers of Old Bay® were adding some heat to their classic savory spice max, we knew that we needed to put it on potato chips. Old Bay® lovers everywhere can't rejoice, now that we have combined the one-of-a-kind Old Bay® HOT seasoning with our crisp and tasty potato chips.”
