Taste test: These are typical Cape Cod chips (meaning they are the standard which all other kettle chips shall be judged -- in other words, they're good chips) with the added bonus of having a salt and pepper type of taste.
We still feel that other salt & pepper chips are better (Utz), these are a very, very close second because they put this on a kettle-style chip. We would have liked to see a bit more salt on this chip, as the pepper tends to dominate the chip. But overall, a wonderful snack from the fine folks at Cape Cod.
Smell test: It has an aroma, but we can't place it. Slight spice aroma.
From the package: “The Secret of Nantucket Spice -- In the late 18th century, clipper ships from Nantucket were plying the world's oceans to trade exotic goods and spices in faraway ports. Today our ships are used for pleasure, but the spices that we found are still a part of our life, and now part of a great new potato chip. In honor of our unique heritage we've taken a special blend of cracked pepper and delicate white pepper, combined with natural sea salt and other subtle seasonings to make our Nantucket Spice potato chips. The result is a pepper-based blend of spices that are the ideal compliment to our delicious hand-cooked chips. As always, at Cape Cod Potato Chips we stay true to our New England roots -- making delicious hand-cooked potato chips from only the finest ingredients. With our new Nantucket Spice we promise you've bought a bag of chips with the real personality and flavor of New England. Please drop us a line or come visit us and say hello. Enjoy!”
