Taste test: These potato chips from Canada promised to deliver a special regional taste combining cheese curds and gravy, a delicacy that's not available in all that many places.

We opened the bag to find that the chips were cut fairly thick and had medium-width ripples. The surfaces had a nice yellow color with various levels of browning. There were with some bits of seasoning between the ripples, but not a lot.

We crunched in to find a fairly soft crunch and middling crispness. There was certainly a gravy taste, but not much in the way of cheese curds. It was a fairly mild flavor, but a good one. We shared these around with quite a few snackers, and most people liked them a lot. Even some serial poutine-eaters were fans, though in most cases they noted that the taste was mostly like potatoes and gravy.

Smell test: Very tangy. Kind a mix of cheese and gravy, could pass for Poutine.

From the package: “Simulated flavour/Saveur simulée” ... “Poutine, eh? Cheese 'n' Gravy! Canada's unofficial food group collides with Canada's favourite ridged chip brand to create a taste so mind-blowing your taste buds will be in shock. The taste of crispy hot fries, smothered in gravy and topped with melted cheese inspired Ruffles Poutine flavour potato chips — a delicacy which can only be described as magic in the mouth.”
