More Japanese Chips

Since the last time I wrote about Japanese chips I've tried to take pictures of some of the ones I found more interesting. It seems like every month there are new flavors. The only bad part is if you find a flavor you crave they'll be unavailable in just a few weeks. I'll miss all this variety when I go back to the states.


American Burger
Hamburger flavored potato chips. What could be more awesome than junk food inspired junk food?
Carmel Butter
Dessert potato chips. Hey, not that far from a cookie but much lighter.
Caesar Salad
It's just like the salad if it was all croutons.
Qīngiāo róusī
Calbee got into Chinese dish flavored chips for a while. I think this is green peppers, pork, and various spices.
Cheese Cake
These are like cheese puffs except cheese cake flavored. Great! The "Caramel Corn" part is a sub-brand from Tohato of puffs, all of them sweet. Think Captain Crunch.
Cheese Curry
There are generally often potatoes in Japanese curry so just make those the main part and here you are.
Corn Potage
Cream of Corn soup flavored puffs. Mmmm Mmmm Good.
Cream Croquette
Think of a cream croquette as breaded deep fried cream of something soup. Now turn it into a chip flavor.
Gara Masala
Garam masala flavored tiny fried nan chips. They're pretty spicy but in an "I can't stop eating them" kind of way
Gara Masala Curry
Same as the previous one but these are corn chips instead of tiny nans. I like the ones above better.
Gorgonzola
Don't feel like making gorgonzola macaroni? Eat this instead.K
Possam Kimchee
I like kimchee so I like these chips. Tangy and spicy.
Carbonara Tongari Corn
These are like bugles but with ham and cream sauce pasta flavored.
Louisiana Cut
What is "Louisiana Cut"? I couldn't find anything on the web and I've never heard of it. The flavor is "Fond de veau" which is apparently a French beef based brown sauce.
Mapodoufu
Mapodoufu is tofu in a spicy pork sauce. It's AWESOME and yet I've never seen it in the states. What's up with that?
Mayo Mania
These are mentaiko and mayonnaise flavored. mentaiko is a spicy fish egg so tiny it's like a spice and goes perfect with mayo. First Kitchen even features it.
Mushrooms & Bacon
With butter and garlic. How can you say no to that?
Okonomiyaki Chips
Okonomiyaki is often called Japanese Pizza. I prefer the real thing.
Pizza-La
I wonder if the "la" is from the Chinese version of "yo!". Pizza flavored corn chips. "For people who can't get enough garlic" according to the bag.
Ebi Mayo
More Pizza-La brand corn chips be these ones are mayonnaise and shrimp flavored. Shimp and mayo on pizza? Don't knock it until you've tried it!
Gekikara Indo Curry
Super spicy Indian Curry flavored chips. I think the Gara-Masala chips above are spicier.
Tandori Chicken
I guess Indian spices are popular. I certainly gobble them up.
Tonkatsu
Deep fried battered pork plus ground sesame seed sauce. Now I'm hungry for tonkatsu.

So much temptation! The only salvation is the portions are much smaller than American portions. Thank you for small miracles.

    Louisiana Cut

    I think the “Louisiana Cut” thing is referring to how the chips have ridges like American “Ruffles” brand?  Just a thought.

    so i want to look that commercial again cause i really love it

    it makes me laugh so hard…

    Cool

    Glad to see that I wasn’t the only one intrigued by the vast variety of chips available in Japan. I moved here about 2 weeks ago and have found Miso soup flavoured chips, curry, beef, and some other good stuff that I don’t know what it is (can’t read the kanji) but it is mighty good. Add the chips to a candy bar I found last night called “Crunky” and you have all you need to “get crunk”!

    Horseradish?

    When I lived in Japan about 14 years ago, my favourite chip was some sort of horseradish flavoured variety. The bag was light green I think and it had a cartoon sketch of a cow and a radish. Horseradish steak maybe?

    Anyway if you know what I’m talking about and it still exists I’d love to see a picture.

  • http://blog.greggman.com greggman

    I’m pretty sure you mean Wasabi flavored potato chips. Wasabi is a kind of horse radish and it’s green. I’m sure I know the chips you are talking about as well.

    I wanna share Indian curry recipes

    I am a Japanese girl, and apart from Japanese dishes I also love Indian curry. I knew how to make Japanese curry, but I did not know about how to make Indian curry. Recently I purchased one great book of Indian curry recipes. And it was so good and simple to follow, now I can make Indian curries and other recipes just the same as any Indian restaurant in Tokyo like Samrat, Ashoka or Maharaja.  You can check the book at

    Indo Curry

    Enjoy eating !!

    I think

    My opinion is that the “Louisiana Cut” thing is referring to how the chips have ridges like American “Ruffles” brand? Just a joke.

    Hey I’d like to try those Indian style chips…

    … where can I get them?

    I’m an Indo-jin working here in Tokyo, on & off. I miss spicy home flavours… sorry to say but “Curry” is as Indian as Chop Suey… but that’s the face of Indian food that the world sees :-( FYI, we *NEVER* eat “Curry” at home. And by “we” I mean Indians, not just me.

    In fact the word itself is a corruption of a “soup”(for want of a better translation?) made from chickpea flour with fried spiced curd added – called ‘Kadhi’ – tough to pronounce for the average Anglophone, I guess?!

    What I’ve rarely seen done outside India, is frying the spices in crackling oil, before adding them to whatever is being spiced – by not doing that, to the Indian tongue, the ‘uncooked’ spices are discernible, destroying the authentic Indian taste.

    and the guy on the Garam Masala nan chip packet is…

    Rajnikant!

    Mega super film star from South India famous for outrageous (even for us north Indians ;-) ) ridiculous, over-the-top movies which are so ‘Ed Wood’ campy to be entertainingly funny.

    Oh! He has legions of fans down south, though.

    The chick is unrecognisable – maybe some ‘Southie’ reading this post can help? Usually they’re just ‘eye-candy’ starlets…
