Taste test: These round crisps had kind of a brownish orange color, with some bits of sugar visible on the somewhat wiggly surfaces. They were a bit thinner than the potato-based versions Popchips.
I crunched in find a high level of crispness and a good crunch, but not much in the way of sweet potato taste. So I checked the ingredients to see if they actually included sweet potato (I was guessing maybe they meant "potato + sugar = sweet potato") and it turned out that they did, but only as the second ingredient, Sweet Potato Flakes, while the first ingredient was actually Rice Flour. I liked the taste, and as I ate more, I could taste some sweet potato. However, I would not even begin to compare the taste to actual sweet potato chips, as there are many great kinds of those, and these were nothing like them. So these were good and might be worth a try to see if you like them. But if you're craving some sweet potato, don't bother with these; get some real sweet potato chips.

Smell test: Kind of mildly like fried dough.
From the package: “all the flavor. half the fat. think popped!™ lately all this low-fat health talk has been taking the fun right out of snacking, not to mention the flavor. so we found a new way to put it back into an all natural chip like you've never tasted before. never fried. never baked. we don't fry it (unhealthy). we don't bake it (undelicious). we start with sweet potatoes and other all-natural ingredients, apply heat and pressure (no oil, mind you), and pop! it's a chip. then we use the finest seasonings for a snack so tasty and crispy, you won't even notice that it's (we hesitate to say) healthier.”
