Taste test: These potato chips had wiggly shapes and lots of dark red seasoning over most of their surfaces, a contrast to the light yellow showing through in parts with less seasoning.
We crunched in to find a light crunch and paprika-like flavor initially, growing into some mild heat after that, with a nice flavor from the mix of paprika, hot peppers and potato. The heat was comparatively mild, but it grew hotter in the aftertaste about a minute later, so the aftertaste was closer to Sizzlin' Hot than the initial heat.
Smell test: Some spices, but not really hot.
From the package: “Vitner's Sizzlin' Hot&reh; Potato Chips secret blend of spices packs a lot of heat — a true Chicago original!” ... “Since 1926, Vitner's has done things the Chicago Way: Big and bold!”
