Taste test: These wide-rippled potato chips had a variety of shades of color on their surfaces, ranging from yellow to somewhat bright orange, as there was variation in the color of the underlying chips as well as the level of seasonings.
We crunched in to find a very good crispness and a somewhat brittle crunch, for a nice texture. The ribs seasoning was on the mild side but still pretty tasty. It was mostly a barbecue type of flavor, with no particular heat, but there was a bit of smokiness. It wasn't a perfect match for baby back ribs, as we couldn't notice any meat taste. Among the other brands of Baby Bay Ribs flavored potato chips, we found that Herr's and President's Choice were more authentically ribby, and less so from Brother Kane, Barrel o' Fun and Lay's.
Smell test: Fairly ordinary barbecue chips smell.
