Taste test: These potato chips promised the unusual ingredient of salt from the Kalahari Desert. We couldn't see any specific evidence of that in the appearance of the chips — and we wouldn't even know where to begin to look for it. The chips had a strong yellow color with a semi-transparent look in some areas, plus lots of skin around the edges and somewhat wiggly shapes. The pieces were generally smallish.
We crunched in to find a strong crunch and good rich potato taste, fairly salty at times, but there was not anything flavorwise that set these apart from potato chips that didn't mention the Kalahari Desert on their bags. Still, they were tasty.

Smell test: Mild potato smell.
From the package: “We could tell you more about our desert salt ... like how it is unrefined and unprocessed, and naturally harvested from a salt pan in the pristine Kalahari Desert ... but we get the feeling you're the kind of crisp eater who would rather keep it minimal. We respect that.” ... “Savoursmiths' potatoes are grown in the UK to LEAF Marque standards.”
