Upon opening the 168g canister the seal was intacted so when I pulled it back it has the usual chip smell, like when you just get a fresh bag from the local grocers. So I go into it and the chip does not taste to bad. Just like from before, although recently it has seem to me the price is a little steep, the others comps around are still a little higher than this product. Is the price worth it? That I would say is a close call, and in my experience it might be. However you can not judge just by one persons opinion, so if you have not tried them, consider like a baked style potato chip, with not as much salt. If this is something that you think you might like, then I would start out with the smallest size available in the area, this way not only can you form your own opinion; however, if you determine that it is not something that you like and you must throw it out, due to taste you would also minimize how much money you lost. For example if one proudct cost 0.50 cents and the product cost 2.50 for this size I would say to go for the fifty cent pack first and try them and initally save the two dollars. However if you get through that pack and like them than on your next standard shopping trip go foe the 2.50 and get more product and that way if you space it out, it might last you for two shopping trips where you would not need to get another until the third and save four dollars.
