Calbee Seaweed and Salt Potato Chips

They look like sour cream and onion potato chips, but they're not.

Seaweed and salt potato chips from Calbee, the same company that brought you shrimp-flavored chips. If you like eating strips of toasted seaweed, then you'll like these. Yes, there were bigger chips in the bag, but *burp* I ate them all before I remembered to take photos. :P The "new BBQ" flavor actually tasted like Chicken in a Bisket, remember those? Not bad but at $1.89 for a 2.8-oz bag, once for the novelty factor was enough.

Care to see other wacky "fun food"? It's now all categorized! San Gabriel Superstore 1635 San Gabriel Blvd. San Gabriel, CA 91776 626-280-9998 ***** 1 year ago today, oh how the mighty have fallen. One of my favorite dim sum restaurants is now lackluster at best - NBC Seafood Restaurant in Monterey Park.


  1. I really like Calbee Chips- they are really good and scrumptious! Lots of unusual flavors too- like what you ate. Once I ate a very intresting flavor- ominoyaki! (sp?). It was good and was a big bag for about 2 dollars (this was in HK).

    Great post and writing- again your photos look great; HD quality.

  2. calbee is the ultimate chips brand here...but i kinda don't like it...too sweet for me...i like ruffles' cheddar and sour cream, or smith crisps' full monty which they sadly decided not to produce anymore T_T sob sob sob

  3. I love their Snowpea Crisps too!!

  4. I love Calbee chips as well. The first bag I had was Consomme flavored. The reason why I tried them was because of this anime called Death Note. Stupid reason, but they were damn good.

  5. Calbee shrimp chips were such a staple during my childhood, but I'm not terribly fond of them now. I'd be interested in trying the seaweed and salt chips, however. I must find a shop that carries them.

  6. oh i've had this flavour before. not sure they were by calbee. but they were really good!

  7. WSL98787,
    Okonomiyaki you mean? If I saw that flavor, I definitely would have bought it. Will keep it in mind if I ever see it.

    There was a sort of sweet aftertaste. Not too bad though. I like sour cream and cheddar too. And bbq.

    I had forgotten about those snowpea crisps! Yum!

    Never saw consomme flavor. Will have to keep that in mind too.

    Cutting the Cheese,
    Same here. I don't think I've eaten a shrimp chip since childhood actually.

    It'd be cool if other companies are making seaweed chips too.

  8. Wandering Chopsticks:
    I think it was that flavor- it's been a year. The packaging is black though and I don't think it's in the US unfortunately (maybe specialty store?). The chip was a little sweet and tangy/soy sauce tasting though.

  9. Gotta love Asian snacks and their wacky but tasty flavors! If you have international readers we should do a snack swap! Hehe. American snacks seem so boring to me but my German cousins loves them!

  10. WSL98787,
    Ah, I meant I think you meant this okonomiyaki

    Funny you said that b/c I'm doing one right now! I love foreign foods. Maybe I should organize one for my blog readers? I've actually been think of this for a while but trying to figure out the logistics.

  11. I usually have calbee shrimp cracker sticks. Have not tried their chips though. Maybe I can try since I am a snack person :P

  12. Tigerfishy,
    I think most people are familiar with their shrimp sticks. I ate that a lot as a kid! Haven't eaten it in years now though!
