New chip flavor

| 2 Comments

yuzu-chips.jpgHere's a product you're not likely to find in American grocery stores. These potato chips are yuzu-shichimi flavoured.

I'm a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to fried potato snacks--salt is sufficient seasoning--but these are pretty good for doctored chips. The yuzu is subtle; the shichimi is barely there. If you want a blast of overpoweringly spicy citrus flavour, these are not the snack for you. But if you are looking for something gently different, then I recommend them.

Yamayoshi also makes the popular WasaBeef (wasabi beef) chips and a host of others. They have a website with dancing bobble-headed cows in their TV commercials and online shopping, but they don't ship outside Japan.

Thanks for posting to wirefarm regarding my Tokyo questions. Your blog is awesome! I love the combination of info and nice photographs. The tips section will surely come in handy.

Are you teaching English there or working in another capacity? I'm just curious - I lived in Prague for two years and thought maybe I'd give Tokyo a shot someday...

I had to go to the commercial site and play the clips... now I can't get the tune out of my head. Thanks!
