Taste test: These potato chips had extra-wide, extra-deep ripples, with a nice bright orange/yellow color and lots of large bits of green stuck to the surfaces. The chips looked really good. Chips sizes varied, but many of them were quite large.
We crunched in to find a good crispness and good strong (but not hard) crunch and a flavor that was surprisingly mild for something billed as "ultimate" and "loaded." The taste was mostly like a cheddar and sour cream chip, with more cheddar than sour cream, plus just a hint of bacon. Crunchy, tasty and quite popular among our snackers — nicely "ultimate" in terms of chip shape, but just not as "loaded" with flavor as we expected.

Smell test: More cheese than bacon, but good.
