Taste test: These potato chips from Spain had an unusual appearance, with generally a strong yellow color, but also many areas with kind a ghostly transparent look. There was dark skin on some parts of the edges, plus some very sparse large bits of dark seasoning.
I crunched in to find a nice light crunch and lots of truffle flavor. There wasn't any of the sweetness that came in the aroma in the taste, but it was a really good flavor. We shared these around at a Christmas party, and the snackers who tried some were quite trilled. One of these people declared these to be the best potato chips she's ever eaten.
Smell test: Sweet, a bit fruity and mildly potatoey.
From the package: “Trufa Negra” ... “Since 1969” ... “Made in Spain” ... “We select only the best ingredients that give our potatoes an innovative flavour and an exquisite aroma; high caliber potatoes grown in the best gardens with select authentic black truffles and just the right touch of salt.” .... “Be captivated by the intense aroma with sweet and fruity notes that will convert this into a real treat for the senses.”
