Taste test: The chips in this bag didn't look much like the ones pictured on the front of it, as the "Squareoos" shown were rectangular and looked like tortilla chips, with generally flat surfaces, while the ones in the bag looked like potato crisps (which they were) with narrow ripples and wiggly surfaces. The Squareoos appeared to have been be cut from squares, or at least rectangles, before becoming wiggly during cooking.
We crunched in to find a crisp crunch and light feel, similar to other potato crisps. There was some flavoring, but not a lot of it, with maybe a hint of tomato, or salsa in the mildest form of the word. Not bad, a nice light, tasty snack, but a mismatch for what was described on the bag for both flavor and shape.
