Taste test: This thin cardboard box didn't contain many clues that weren't in Korean about its contents, as "Original" was the only word that we could read. When we opened it, the inner foil bag did say "Baked Potato Chips" (plus "Original" yet again).
We opened the bag to find a stack of uniformly oval-shaped potato crisps, with ripples, but the overall shape was nearly flat (unlike the curved shapes of Pringles). Colors ranged from light yellow to golden yellow. We really didn't know what to expect for the taste, as we saw the description of original baked potato chips, yet the ingredients listed quite a few things other than potato — including the final ingredient of Shrimp Extract. When we crunched in, there was no shrimp that anyone could notice, nor any other unusual flavors. Mostly we could taste fairly standard potato crisps, a lot like Baked Lay's, with a nice soft, crisp crunch. Very good. We shared these with lots of snackers, and everyone enjoyed eating these.
