Like your chips super salty sweet and super sour? Then you are going to love the Super Ume potato chips. When I first saw these I was certain I was looking at conbini criminal – but someone in the office (Mayuko) protested that they were actually pretty good. My verdict. Not so much.
Perhaps it boils down to the fact that I’m simply not an ume fan, whether it is lying in plain sight on top of a bento or secretly hiding in wait inside an onigiri. But here the ume coloring is a brilliant fake red that screams “cancer”. Second, the sour flavor shrieks “would you like some MSG with all this artificial flavoring?” Hasn’t the potato chip suffered enough?
