Taste test: These are awful.
It's a little hard to judge the flavor, because the smell is so terrible, and while you're tasting these, you can't help but smell them as well. But initially as you're crunching into them, the actual flavor of what you're eating doesn't seem that bad, if you're able to subtract out the smell factor (which is no easy task). But as you chew, the taste gets very bad as well. And the aftertaste is very, very bad. Really bad. Unless you like to eat rancid paint, you probably won't see much virtue in these chips.

Smell test: Ouch. Smells like latex paint in a freshly painted room. The aroma really hits you like a punch in the face, and it's bad. (I had to throw out the bag, because the awful smell coming from this bag was polluting people's impressions of the other chips of the day.)
