NEW JACK 'N JILL CALBEE CHIPS: SPICY PIZZA POTATO, RIPPLES NORI, AND RIPPLES SOUR CREAM & ONION


I may be a full-grown adult but I still devour chichirya like I'm a kid/teenager.

In fact, one of my favorite things to do when I'm at the supermarket is check out new chips and other snacks, and buy them, of course, so I can try them at home. You know, maybe discover new favorites for movie/TV series-watching.


I am proud to announce that Sadako and I have three new favorites.

The first one is Jack 'n Jill Calbee Ripples Potato Chips in sour cream and onion. I am a big fan of sour cream and onion and its very sophisticated flavor so this is a no-brainer.

The second is the nori variety of Ripples. I love Japanese food and flavors, so this is a no-brainer for me, too. I love weird, unusual, unexpected flavors and this is definitely an example of that.


The third is Spicy Pizza Potato. They have a regular pizza variant, which is pretty good. This hot sauce-flavored version is just as good or even better if you like your chips spicy. It is salty and tangy and a little sweet and spicy, of course, and it works.

Among the three, Sadako likes Ripples Potato Chips Sour Cream & Onion. Of course, she is not a big fan of Spicy Pizza Potato because it's spicy, and she's never really tasted anything nori so she's kind of hesitant to try Ripples Potato Chips Nori. I'll force her one of these days, of course.


As for me, I'm digging all three so it's just a matter of flavor preference when it's snack time.
