Taste test: These chips were a major hit around the chip bowl, ranked by some among the best chips ever.
The main reason seemed to be a thoroughly excellent flavor — lots of great chili taste and even an impressive kick of heat. Beneath all that great flavor, the underlying chip was quite nice as well, with a light, crispy crunch on a fairly thick chip. The bag emptied quickly as people enjoyed chip after chip. The heavy amount of seasoning did leave behind quite a bit of residue on people's fingers, so be prepared to lick yours for some extra flavor later on, or else bring along a good, absorbant napkin to keep yourself clean.
Smell test: Nice, but very mild, baked potato smell.
From the package: “Smoky chili seeks sweet companion. Now organic is for the flavor seekers. These potato chips are summer simplicity in health and taste. Bite into these mouth-watering treats and they might just curl your sombrero! Let your mouth be the meeting place for our smoky chipotle chili and its sweet barbeque sauce companion.”
