Taste test: These potato chips had a major orange glow to them, though when I examined the chips closely, it was hard to see any actual orange seasoning powder.
Upon biting in, I was impressed by the depth of the favor, which was spicy, sweet and intense, with quite a hot aftertaste. Definitely a different taste any any other hot chips or chili pepper chips we've tried. The texture was also quite nice, as the chips were quite crisp but had a very brittle crunch. It was hard to stop eating them, but it was also hard not to want a beverage right after. Would also work as a nice complement to a sandwich. Great!
Smell test: Sort of like a barbecue chips smell, but tangier, but in a weird way.
