Taste test: These aren't bad.
They're more potatoey than barbecuey, but they taste OK. They're sort of a processed-potato product rather than a chip, molded into sort of a checkerboard pattern.
Smell test: Don't smell the bag. It's kind of musty-smelling.
From the package: ” “BAR-B-Q POTATO CHECKERS” , is a crunchy snack made with real potatoes and sprinkled with tangy barbecue seasoning. The unique checkered shape creates a light spispy snack. It is ideal for any occasion.” ... “Calbee Sapporo Potatoes are healthy snacks brimming with the fruits of nature.”
