Taste test: Having recently decided to use the Smartfood name to sell snacks other than Popcorn, Frito-Lay is now using it to brand products that generally resemble Popchips.
This kind was made with garbanzo flour, which I haven't seen in any of the Popchips varieties, but they sure reminded me of Popchips in shape and texture, plus they had the descriptive name "Popped Chips" on the bag. The chips were round and light beige in color, with lots of wiggles and some green specks. They were slightly thinner than Popchips, and also crunchier and denser. The feta and herb flavor was tasty, though it was on the subtle side, not as intense as I might have expected. Pretty good.

Smell test: Nice herbs, and definitely can smell the feta as well.
From the package: “Smart combinations of real herbs & spices” ... “The Smartfood® brand has been creating delicious, fresh-tasting, light-textured White Cheddar Cheese popcorn for over 25 years. But it's smart to spice things up every once in a while. With Smartfood® Selects, our chefs have masterfully crafter mouth-watering flavors, naturally made with smart combinations of real herbs and spices.” ... “Herbs are a natural accompaniment to cheese. This delicious recipe combines feta cheese with rosemary, basil, and black pepper for a flavor that perfectly complements our hummus popped chip.”
