Taste test: These potato chips were the second variety we tried that Utz co-branded with Heluva Good dips, a follow-up to the French onion flavor. The chips had wide ripples and a nice yellow color, with lots of dark skin on the edges and not much seasoning visible on the surfaces. Many jalapeño-flavor chips have ample green bits on their surfaces, but not this one.
I crunched in to find initially a taste that was just cheddar and potato, but some zestiness did kick in after that, with definitely some heat and maybe a bit of it actually a jalapeño taste. It didn't particularly taste like it was dipped in a Heluva Good dip (the back of the bag recommended getting some dip and dipping the chips into it for even more taste!), but it did taste good.

Smell test: Smelled like cheddar (or maybe cheddar & sour cream) potato chips, couldn't notice any jalapeno.
