Taste test: Guest reviewer Melissa Cross, who enjoys an occasional snack of Wow! chips, reports: "They taste like a mix of regular Lays and potato sticks.
If you didn't know they were fat free, you would not be able to tell. They were a little greasy. Overall they were average."
Smell test: Kind of a strange smell. Not really potatoey, but not bad either.
From the package: “Great Tasting Potato Chips ... Yes!
