Taste test: These potato chips looked like the typical kettle-cooked chips, with most of the chips fairly small and wiggly in shape, with a dark yellow color on most chips, browned in some areas. There was a light coating of orange seasoning visible on most of the chips, unevenly applied.
When I crunched in, there was a very slight tomato taste that reminded me of drinking a V8, but again, very slight, as in maybe 5% of the taste of a V8. There was no heat. None. After a bite or two, the V8 flavor was gone, but the chips still tasted good, just nothing remotely like a Bloody Mary, let alone a spicy one. I noticed a tiny bit of a hot aftertaste, but really it was about as weak as it could have been while still being noticeable. So overall, a tasty chip, but as a Spicy Blood Mary chip, pretty lame.
Smell test: Mostly like potato chips, no bloody Mary spices that I could notice.
