Taste test: These are good hot vinegar chips.
Unlike many vinegar chips that are pale yellow, these have a strong orange glow to them. Both the vinegar zing and the heat are moderately strong, but by no means overwheming, and the comination is a good taste. The vinegar zing goes away once you swallow the chip, but the heat lingers for a while. A nice chip, a Chicago specialty.
Smell test: At first, a bit vinegary, then it's a mild barbecue aroma.
