Taste test: These kettle-cooked potato chips were wiggly and pale yellow in color, with some potato skin visible around parts of the edges of some of the chips.
The chips had a good crunch and a pretty good crispness, but they didn't have a whole lot of potato flavor, and not a whole lot of salt either. They didn't taste bad, but the flavor was just kind of weak. We've tried a number of brands of chips with a similar texture to these that had considerably more potato flavor.
Smell test: Regular kettle-cooked chips smell, but kind of weak.
From the package: “honestly delicious • natural • cooked in 100% sunflower oil” ... “At Panera Bread, we hold everything we make to the same standards as the artisan bread we bake fresh in the morning. We believe that food should not only taste great, but be created from the highest quality ingredients available.”
