You can get all kinds of flavors in potato chips in Japan but the two most common are salt and nori (i.e., the seaweed used to wrap sushi in). For some reason, the Japanese agreed that the flavor of nori perfectly complements that of potatoes - and the conversation was over! Until now, when one of the country's top snack makers, potato specialist Calbee, offered a whole new take, replacing nori with another popular seaweed, kombu (or konbu) kelp, in its Calbee Imoko & Kobutaro Kombu Potato Chips, which are here available in six handy 15 g (0.5 oz) bags.
Using only non-genetically modified potatoes and kombu from Hokkaido, the company has made the Calbee Imoko & Kobutaro Kombu Potato Chips as pure as they can be. But what really sets these chips apart is the taste and the texture: thick enough to make your teeth work just a little bit more, their flavor condenses the naturally rich ingredients plucked from the Pacific Ocean, washing up on the shores of Japan's largest and northernmost island. A must-try for all potato chips lovers!
