Taste test: These are very similar in most ways to Pringles.
They come in a Pringles-size can, are uniformly shaped with a shape very similar to Pringles, and are made from dried potatoes. The first major difference I noticed was what happened when I opened the can. I know that Pringles cans pop when you open the inner seal, but in this case, after struggling to get the seal open, the can made a really serious pop. The chips themselves are shaped just about the same as Pringles, but these don't have as much taste. Not bad, but somewhat blander than Pringles. Kind of addictive in the same way as Pringles, though. One odd thing I noticed as I kept returning to the can for more was that each of the crisps has a kink on one side — sort of a notch in the same place on every crisp. Not sure what it's for, but I'm guessing it's to help keep them piled up correctly and unbroken. If that was the intention, it worked, as this can had fewer broken crisps than your average can of Pringles.
Smell test: Good potato crisps smell.
