Taste test: These potato chips were dark in color, with a brownish orange color and darker skin visible around the edges.
The generally smallish chips had the characteristic wiggle and irregular shapes of kettle-cooked chips, with most of the chips folded over. I bit in to find a very nice potato taste and a mild jalapeno heat. It didn't seem at first that the heat was enough that I would need a beverage. My initial reaction to the slight burn of the aftertaste was that it tasted great and felt good. But a minute or so after I finished eating a handful of chips, the heat did catch up with me, and I went for a beverage to cool things down. It wasn't in the league of the hottest jalapeno chips, but it was a good step above the jalapeno pretenders that claim heat but really have little or none. Jonathan packed a lot of chips into this small bag, including a whole bunch of small, folded-over ones near the bottom, and impressively, very few chips were broken.
Smell test: Nice potato smell, like a baked potato, but with just the slightest hint of jalapeno pepper.
From the package: “Scrumptious, and by jove, frightfully delicious. These crisps are hot under the collar about taste, spirited about flavour and possess a singular charm that, once encountered, isn't easily forgotten.” .... “Vegetarian Society approved” ... “Say no to GMO” ... “Vote gluten free” ... “Natural ingredients only!”
