Taste test: These potato chips promised to taste like the most popular brand of sriracha sauce, from Huy Fong, so we were eager to try them! It took over a year to find these after discovering the equivalently branded sriracha popcorn.
The chips had wiggly shapes and many bubbles embedded inside, with a strong orange color, far more orange than the chips pictured on the front of the bag. We crunched in to find a very tasty mix of hot spices, with a strong hint of actual sriracha sauce. It wasn't anything like dipping a chip in sriracha sauce (which we would also encourage) but we could taste some sriracha to go along with the potato flavor of the crisp and crunchy chips, and together it tasted great! They were hot, but not extremely so, and they quickly earned many fans as we shared them around during a large birthday gathering at a bar. Mmmmm!
Smell test: Good spicy potato smell, but not particularly like Sriracha.
