Taste test: These potato chips were quite colorful, with a mix of dark blueish purple and yellow, or light reddish purple and yellow, depending on the chip. They had wiggly shapes with some bubbles embedded inside.

I tried both kinds and found that the blue ones a very strange crunch, somewhat more solid than your typical potato chip, but just not crisp in a potato kind of way. The red ones were much different, with a light, crisp crunch that reminded me somewhat of Russet chips. The taste in both cases was pretty good, with a rich potato flavor and a bit of salt. They're not among the great potato chips, but when we shared then around at a beer hall, some people sure crunched through many handfuls of them!

Smell test: Great, like Russet potatoes. Mmmmmm!

From the package: “Product of Peru” ... “Made from potatoes grown high in the Andes mountains of Peru — the potato's native homeland — Trader Joe's Peruvian potato chips are crispy and crunchy. We've selected a mix of red and purple hued potato Peruvian varieties, to showcase the native potatoes of Peru in a snack that is unique and beautiful as the Andes themselves.”
