Taste test: These chips looked pretty much like ordinary potato chips, with the standard shade of yellow that we've come to expect from Walkers and some occasional dark spots around the edges, with no flavor powder visible.
When I crunched in, I noticed that the texture was different than usual, not as crisp and slightly stiffer, almost like it had an ultra-thin invisible batter coating. The taste was good, as it was a slightly vinegary and remotely fish-like taste. The more chips that I ate, the more I was convinced that these did taste like fish. I'm not sure I would have guessed the flavor if I hadn't read the bag before tasting (I might have guessed some sort of vinegar), but maybe that's because I always douse my fish & chips in tartar sauce.
Smell test: Wow, it really does smell like fish & chips, and thankfully not in a "bad fish smell" way. You really can smell the fish and the vinegary breading.
