Taste test: These potato chips were cut thick and had fairly flat shapes, with skin nearly all the way around the edges of most of the chips.
We crunched in to find a very nice potato taste with some subtle spices, but as for the promise on the bag of an intense heat, we really couldn't taste anything remotely like that. The chips were tasty, and people liked eating them, but as hot chips go, these were about as un-hot as hot chips can get.
Smell test: Some aromatic spices, but not really any heat.
From the package: “Mackie's Scotch Bonnet Chili Pepper flavor offers both an intense heat and sweet fruitiness. Famously hot, Scotch Bonnet Peppers add a fiery kick to the fresh potato taste of Mackie's crisps. 'Scotch Bonnet' refers to the resemblance to a Scottish 'Tam O'Shanter' cap!”
