Potato chip flavors all over the world

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!!

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?


(Chris) #48

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.

Yummy. Seen in 7-11 in Singapore. Bit pricey at usd$5.

That’s cool. First time seeing it.

I cure my own egg yolks and grate them over many things. Duck eggs are richer, though. Yum!
