Taste test: These chips were part of the Walkers Flavour Cup series of limited-edition potato chip flavors, offering a varieties of international tastes in celebration of World Cup Soccer. This was the most anticipated of the flavors that we bought, thanks to the promise of kangaroo flavor. I opened the bag to find that it contained smallish, orange-tinted, sort of greasy-looking chips with no flavor powder visible.
When I crunched in, I didn't taste anything like a typical barbecue flavor, as the taste was mostly like a beef bullion cube or beef broth (or possibly a kangaroo broth, if that happens to taste the same). The flavor was fairly mild, and it definitely wasn't what I was expecting, but it wasn't bad.
Smell test: Tangy smell similar to other Walkers seasonings. No idea what kangaroo meat smells like, but I doubt it's this.
