Taste test: These thick-cut, wide-rippled chips were yellow with lots of dark bits of skin around their edges.
They had quite a bit of crunch but were just slightly less crisp than I would have preferred. There was a good amount of potato flavor, with a fairly generous helping of salt, so the taste was pretty good. But not as good as the rippled, non-kettle-cooked chips from Herr's, which are quite good. Comparing these to the rippled chips from Kettle Chips, I'd have to give the edge to Kettle, as those have a much richer and tastier potato flavor.
Smell test: Good strong salty fried potato smell.
From the package: “Start with the very best potatoes and you'll end up with the very best potato chips. That's the recipe for success behind all Herr's® potato chip products. And these new Ripple Kettle Chips are no exception. They're sliced extra thick and cooked extra slow for extra flavor and crunch. Rippled to hold more of that flavor in. And packed up fresh for your snacking pleasure.”
