Taste test: These thinly cut potato chips were yellow to light orange in color, with some scattered green specks on the surfaces.
The sizes of the chips varied, but surprisingly there were no broken chips in the bag, even though I dropped it twice while riding the London Underground. Upon biting in, I found that the chips had an extremely good crispness and a mid-level curry flavor. The flavoring was tasty, and it did indeed taste like curry, but it wasn't nearly as strong as some other curry chips I've eaten. There was a mild heat and a lingering hot aftertaste. I'm not sure that these tasted any more like lamb curry than any other kind of curry, but there were pretty good.
Smell test: Very nice. It really did smell like a curry dish at an Indian restaurant. Strong.
From the package: “This is a pack from a Walkers crisp multipack and must not be sold separately.” (We bought it at a shop in London's Chinatown in direct violation of the preceding sentence.) .... “Ingredients: Potatoes, sunflower oil (33%), lamb curry flavour [sugar, flavouring, cumin, cardamon, clove, celery seed, celery oil, mustard seed, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, colour (paprika extract), wheat flour, cysteine (form poultry)], potassium chloride, salt.”
