Taste test: These potato chips had a golden yellow color and wiggly shapes, with nothing resembling seasoning powder that we could see.
We crunched in to find a strong crunch and a lot of potato flavor, but there wasn't much in the way of smokiness, nor really much cheese for that matter. There did seem to be some mild seasoning, but calling it Smoked Gouda was vastly overstating the case. Good chips, just not the expected flavor.
Smell test: Strong fried potato smell.

Hearty, farm-grown potatoes, deliciously cooked in small batches, then seasoned to cheesy perfection for the best crunch and flavor!” ... “Warning: Consuming this product can expose you to chemicals including acrylamide, which are known to the state of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.
