Taste test: These crisps are stacked in a can like another famous snack that begins with a capital P and rhymes with "Shingles." There's a lot of barbecue powder on these Stax snacks, well, at least on one side of the crisp (the side facing up -- the other side just picks up residue from the crisp that it was sitting on top of).
The barbecue powder is not a sweet taste, it's more of a hickory taste (not really mesquite, but I could be wrong). There's a good crunch, and the potato part of the chip does not overpower the snack -- you can definitely tell that it's a barbecue chip. A slight aftertaste burn lingers in your mouth, but not enough where you have to run for a glass of water.

Smell test: A slight whiff of barbecue.
From the package: From the can, actually. Nothing that explains why they're stacking chips (umm, crisps). Only thing is their “Questions or Comments? 1-800-352-4477 Weekdays 9 to 4:30 Central Time”
