Kettle Bakes Hickory Honey Barbeque Potato Chips

Taste test: It was almost impossible to open this bag, but once I got it open, I found small, baked potato chips with a flat shape, unlike the curves of chips cooked in oil.

The barbecue powder was unevenly distributed — some chips had a lot of it, others very little. The ones with a lot of powder were tasty — a bit of a spicy kick in the aftertaste, and not too sweet in terms of the barbecue taste. The baked nature of the chip made them crunchy, which was nice. There was also a very russet-like aftertaste these chips, as if you had just eaten the skin of a potato, not bad if you like that kind of taste (I don't). Overall, a decent snack if you're into baked chips, but not the best barbecue chip we've ever had.

Smell test: Smells like a bag of potatoes — no smell of honey, hickory or barbecue.

From the package: “The Rice Cakes are Jealous. Ah, the magic of barbeque! That alchemy of sweetness and spice, savory and smoke. A pinch of paprika is the spark, spicy chili peppers the boom, then a touch of natural honey brings all the elements into balance. We think conjuring up this distinctive barbeque flavor for our crunchy Kettle brand Bakes made from fresh-sliced Russets (notice the skins!) may have been our best trick yet.”
