Taste test: These are a seasoned version of Terra's excellent Blues.
They taste like a baked potato with sour cream and dill seasoning. They're quite good, with a the same crunchiness and thickness as the regular Blues. The chip's unusual color did seem to turn off some newcomers to these chips, but once they tried them, they were pleasantly surprised.
Smell test: Smells oily.
