Anyone here try these Japanese “potato snacks” before? Or am I just grossly late to the game?
But whatever, I just know that these are amazing. How so? Imagine a McDonald’s french fry, but in potato chip form.
Read more about them below (as well as ordering info).
Had those in Japan and received a care package with those included. Those taters are delicious and kinda precious (small packs).
Are those being sold here? Because if they are, I don’t think you’re late for the game at all. All that matters is that they’re here!
I dunno if they’re sold in the States, at least in a physical location. I know Amazon and various Internet sites sell them.
I just received these as a gift and sort of wish I never had. Like being introduced to meth for the first time when all you’ve ever had before was weed.
And like drugs, (as I mentioned earlier), they come in little packs (at least ours did). Keeps you reaching for the next bag.
Dunno about you, but I buy my drugs in decks. Usually have to bring the G-Wagon when going shopping.
Your baller-fu is much stronger than mine.
Moped with a plastic bag hanging from handlebars.
My aunt from Japan would buy me these. She got them in Hawaii, I believe.
Calbee North America has a variant of the Jaga Pockle, sold at Whole Foods (at least in Northern California) but likely nowhere as good
Though I wish they offered Japanese flavors.
A couple months ago, Hong Kong and Taiwan media were reporting a massive potato shortage in Japan, and local convenience stores like Lawson, 7-Eleven sold out of inventory.
