Instant ramen, soups, premade “just add meat” meals, frozen gyoza, microwavable cheese in hamburgers; what do they all have in common? Yes, they are all delicious, but they also contain a healthy amount of MSG!
Potato snacks hardly go wrong. Be it french fries with fish & chips, potato chips or crisps, potato snacks are always delicious, especially when deep-fried. The love for potato extends to Japan as well, and evidence of Japan’s success in making delicious potato snacks can be seen from how well Calbee does locally and internationally. As a major Japanese snack maker, Calbee Inc. has operations all over the world, but nothing gives it more attention than its stores in Japan.
If you visit Japan, never ever forget to try the snacks here. Besides being the food mecca that it is, the food that you would want to try in Japan should never just be limited to ramen, sushi, or traditional desserts. The snacks in Japan are definitely worth trying.
