Taste test: These have a very good but not overpowering salsa flavor, and they were quite a hit around the chip bowl.
They really do taste like salsa. The taste is a lot like the salsa that they serve at good Mexican restaurants (it reminds me of the salsa at the Border Cafe in Harvard Square). The amount of flavoring varied a lot from one chip to the next, and the flavor was by no means hot, but it was distinctive enough and had just enough zing to it that the bag emptied quickly. Another big plus was that the bag contained many large, unbroken chips. A winner.

Smell test: Nice barbecue smell.
From the package: “Lay's® Tastes of America™ Potato Chips are the ideal way to experience the unique flavors from across America without ever leaving home. Twice a year, we will introduce two new flavors from different regions of the country. Each flavor will be around for a limited time only, so enjoy them while they last. San Antonio is known for many things — the historic battle at the Alamo, the pristine beauty of the River Ralk and the panoramic views seen from the Tower of the Americas. But another thing that has made San Antonio famous is its salsa — the kind that blends the mouthwatering taste of fresh tomatoes, peppers and onions. This unique taste experience is exactly what our San Antonio Salsa Artificially Flavored Potato Chips capture for you.”
