Taste test: These potato chips had wide ripples and somewhat wiggly shapes, including some folder-over chips. There was a wide range of colors, with some areas having lots of dark orange seasoning, while others were nearly unseasoned and pale yellow.
I crunched in to find a fairly light, crisp crunch, with flavor levels varying widely in proportion to the level of seasoning. Even the ones with a lot of seasoning had a fairly mild flavor, with kind of a sweet and smoky taste, with nothing (at least initially) in the way of heat. A bit of heat did come along for the aftertaste. Nothing extraordinary here as barbecue chips go, but pretty good.
Smell test: Nice sweet and smoky barbecue smell.
From the package: “A Match Made in Bar-B-Q Heaven” ... “When we set out to capture that legendary smoky, savory taste of Texas Bar-B-Q, we went right to the source. When it comes to authentic Texas Bar-B-Q sauce, Stubb's® has proven it is the real deal.”
