Taste test: These are good hot chips with a nice flavor.

They won't win the contest for the hottest chips in the world, but they're still fairly hot and have a lot of flavor. They're hot enough that you might need to go get a drink of water after eating them (but it won't be a super-urgent situation to get water, as it is with some even hotter chips). The flavor powder on the chips is a bright red, similar to some ketchup chips. A good snack with some zing.

Smell test: A good hot barbecue sort of smell — it kind of makes your mouth water.

From the package: “The Life and Times of Uncle Ray — Chapter 10: A hard day's work for a good day's pay. After finishing eighth grade at sixteen, I went to work at Great Lakes Gray Iron Foundry, where my uncle Ira Jenkins was plant foreman. At 6 feet tall and 125 lbs., the work was the hardest I had ever done before or since. My job was to fix facing (fine sand and graphite). This was used to insure a clean finish on the casting. After a year, I became an assistant molder. One day we were pouring a 4-ton mold (8,000 lbs.) of molded iron when the flask split open. A stream of molten iron poured out onto the floor. We ran to keep from getting burned. .... A month after I left the foundry I was still coughing up and spitting up black soot. My father worked 30 years in the foundry and died from Black Lung Disease.
