Taste test: These potato chips from South Africa had gently curving shapes with narrow ripples, with colors ranging from dark yellow to light brown.
We crunched in to find a nice crunch and a tangy, sweet flavor that had some mild zing without being particularly hot or spicy. Mrs H.S. Ball's is evidently a popular brand of chutney in South Africa, available in several flavors, with these chips being based on the original, peach-based one, rather than one of the spicier varieties. We couldn't notice any peach, but they were still very tasty.
Smell test: Strong, very tangy smell, nice.
From the package: “Roarrrs with flavour” ... “Simba chips are made from only the very best potatoes grown right here in Southern Africa, and while every young potato aspires to become a Simba Chippie, only the very best make the grade. Simba, the king of snacks, is very choosy, and he guarantees that every pack will be of the highest quality, and will always Roarrr with flavour!” ... “Produced in South Africa”
