Boulder Potato Company Hickory Barbecue Intense Potato Chips
Taste test: First off, I was very disappointed to open a bag and find it half full, the rest filled with air.
I know they "sell by weight," but I paid $3.59 for a 5 oz. bag (that's what you get for buying in NYC), so wanted more than half a bag of chips. Ugh. Oh yeah, the taste. These chips straddle the line between a smokey barbecue and a sweet barbecue taste, there's enough powder to leave an impression on your fingers, and the crunch is very good. I could eat the entire 5 oz. bag in one sitting, but I do like to share with co-workers. A good chip.

Smell test: Pretty strong spicy barbecue aroma.
From the package: “According to culinary legend, the potato chip originated in 1853 at a fashionable New York restaurant when railroad magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt sent his fried potatoes back to the kitchen, complaining they were too thick. Annoyed, chef George Crum scornfully sliced some potatoes into a kettle of oil and fried them to a crisp. The result was a hit and the potato chip was born. Since 1994, our family has operated the Boulder Potato Company in Boulder, Colorado. Using a simple family recipe, we kettle-cook select potatoes in small batches using high monosaturated sunflower and/or safflower oil, both of which are extremely low in saturated fat. We use totally natural ingredients, hand-rake every batch, and test chips at every stage of preparation to ensure quality and taste.”
