Taste test: These potato chips were shaped less irregularly than the standard (non-baked) Kettle Chips, with not much wiggle in the chips and no folded-over chips.
But they still looked more interesting than conventional potato chips, with different shades of yellow and brown in some of the chips, some bubbles embedded inside and skin around the edges of each chip. When I bit in, there was a good crispness, but it was accompanied by a bland crunch and an equally bland taste. The crunch sort of reminded me of a Japanese rice cracker. The experience wasn't repulsively bad, but there was just nothing about it that felt or tasted like I was eating a potato chip. There was some potato taste, but no potato chip appeal. It was like they took a potato chip and sucked the life out of it.
Smell test: Definitely different from the regular Kettle Chips. Sort of a potatoey smell, not bad, but nothing like the great baked potato smell of Kettle Chips. Ironic, since these are "baked" potato chips.
From the package: “These Lightly Salted baked chips have big flavor, bold crunch and absolutely nothing artificial. They taste so great because they're made from real sliced potatoes, the best oils and only the most natural, real food ingredients.”
