This is a bit off topic but I LOVE Herr’s Ketchup flavored potato chips. They are hard to find so I buy a few bags when I see them at the market.
This is actually how this got started!!! I agree!!
There’s trouble in Paradise:
Time to stock up at Mitsuwa/ Nigiya!!
Perhaps if Japan didn’t practice prohibitive trade policy, the country could be importing potatoes from Washington state, Idaho and Florida. Shortages and price-gouging solved.
Not strictky potato but too good not to share such great names.
A favourite from India.
One from Malaysia
What do those snacks consist of, if not potatoes?
Cornmeal rather than potato based.
I just am eating some Ketchup Doritos.
I like Kurkure too, they are kind of like Indian Cheetos (both made by Frito-Lay).
Seems the practice had been well underway, but the company’s contingency planning fell short:
Informative article. Thank you for posting it.
Puzzling that a business with billions in sales and even manufactures in the U.S. had this raw materials challenge.
We tried these Biscuit and Gravy flavored chips from Lays recently - they didn’t particularly taste like biscuits and gravy but they were still good. Maybe like a sour cream and onion flavor with a hint of porkiness?
I had those whilst vacationing in Maine. I didn’t think much of them. Tasted like powdered gravy and not much else.
I find that most of the Lay’s uniquely flavored ones just taste extremely salty and not like much else.
Think Japan takes that honor (of best flavors)
I really needed a cold beer and some savoury snack to chill out after walking 10km. Chips tastes more sweet than “savoury spicy”. Brand is probably Hungarian, not German.
