California Chips have re-designed their packaging from a striking bright yellow bag with a sunny and bright company logo, to a picture of some dried peppers with a few Chips at the bottom of the image. We like the color coded top and bottom, but that is all, and even though with this case the top bar clashes with the Chillies. As we do not have anything more positive to say, we will stop there.
These Potato Chips had a good crisp crunch. It wasn't a solid hard crunch, but it was snappy and a handful munched at the same time was a Mouth Chip Disco.
A real mix of shapes and sizes, many with darker edges that looked like most welcome potato skin, which you should have with 'All Natural Chips'. There were some large bubbles on the surface along with a liberal and uneven coating of a dark red powdery residue. There was some grease, but not so much that the Finger Plunge Test revealed mucky fingers full of seasoining and oil.
As with the ambiguity of the Earthquake Chips, California Chips have cannily named these 'Creamy' Chipotle. That means if they are not hot enough we can all blame the cream! However, these were hot, and spicy. A much better blend of spices than with many similar flavors and it was tempered somewhat by a creamy flavoring.
