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!
