Taste test: This rippled version of Popchips didn't looked entirely different from the original, as the shapes were generally still round and the surfaces wiggly, but one or both sides of each chip had a series of parallel ridges. Some pieces did stray a bit from being round.
I crunched in to find that the ridges did make most of the pieces a bit cruncher than standard Popchips, while still maintaining their impressive crispness. And best of all, the barbecue flavor was really excellent, with a tangy, sharp, slightly hot flavor that went quite well with the potato flavor. Couldn't stop eating these, great!

Smell test: Very mild sweet barbecue smell. OK.
From the package: “With this much crunch, who needs fried? Authentic BBQ flavor that won't stick to your ribs. Sweet and smoky with a touch of spice — these chips aren't right off the grill, but they taste like they are! Popped until they're incredibly crunchy, Ridges give you the irresistible taste of true BBQ, with no grease left on your fingers, and no moist towelette required.”
