Taste test: These potato chips had somewhat wiggly shapes and a dull yellow color, with some bubbles embedded inside the chips but very little visible seasoning on the surfaces.
We crunched in to find an excellent texture with a crisp, strong crunch, plus a tasty mix of savory spices that didn't quite say "bratwurst" to me. If it hadn't said "brat," I might not have even guessed, "Some kind of meat?" I liked the taste reasonably much, but after eating 7-Eleven's Hot Italian Sausage potato chips and finding the flavor a deliciously perfect match, this one didn't come close.
Smell test: Kind of like a bratwurst, but pretty mild. Had to take a heavy whiff to really notice the meat smell.
From the package: “Just in time for summer, 7-Select brings the flavors of a backyard barbecue to our famously crunchy kettle cooked potato chips for a snacking experience reminiscent of warm summer days and family fun. Nothing beats the smoky flavor of brats over an open flame. We've taken the mouthwatering taste of grilled brats and seal it into our chips for a savory summertime snack.”
