Taste test: These potato chips looked fairly ordinary, as they were small and had some seasoning with much color to it, plus bits of skin around the edges.
I crunched in to find that they lived up to the "Sizzlin' Hot" label, as they had lots of tangy, salty cheese that had a good kick of heat from the first crunch to the aftertaste. The ingredients said that the three cheeses were Cheddar, Romano and Parmesan, but I couldn't really pick out individual cheeses or notice the cheese nearly as much as the saltiness and heat. Very good chips, really packed with bold flavor.
Smell test: Mostly smells like potato, but with a nice hint of cheese. No heat.
