      Quite expensive for the size compared to Aussie chip on special here.

      This is Japanese brand but they made in HK and quite popular there.

      I found that most of the chips in Asia has MSG, Asian get used to the (fake) heavy enhanced MSG taste. Not just chips, many sauces only rely on MSG for taste like chilli sauce. Indonesian, Malaysian, Vietnamese chips and sauces mostly has MSG.

      Many of Aussie chip flavours don't use MSG.

        yeah that's what i mean when i say we got a strong chip game. we dont need MSG and our chips are awesome.

        the worst chip story is pringles - they started out good and now got shrunk and made on the cheap…

        •  

          totally agree with you. I tried this once and don't bother because we have much better product at a much cheaper price.

          Maybe only for those Asians still get used to their heavy taste from childhood… I found many of Vietnamese same, they got used to the lousy sauce from VN ridden with MSG.

            @samehada: Yeah, because our chips don't contain any MSG at all… right? /saracasm

            Check the packets for Flavour Enhancer E621. It's in a lot of our chips. Doritos, Chicken flavour, Barbecue flavour.

            And then if it's not labelled as an additive it is often added through different names for example soy or yeast extract.

        Imagine living in 2020 and still being gullible enough to believe an invented old wives tale from the 1970's about MSG being bad for you.

        Good grief.

          You should have re-read my post. There is nothing wrong with MSG, the only thing is instead of making a true good taste product, all you need now is just add MSG.

          For example chilli sauce, instead of using a good quality chilli with other ingredient now all you need is use less chilli, add MSG to "enhance" the taste.
          - Potato chips, instead of adjusting the ingredient, now you just need to add MSG.
          - Noodle soup, instead of using bone to make stock, just need to add MSG.

          I have never said MSG is bad, of course if consume responsibly which is same as salt.

      •  

        Are you seriously this ignorant of how widespread MSG is used? Bruh…

        You sound like an MSG alarmist.

      Yes, I think Australia punches above its weight in the potato chip division - add to that our excellent baked snacks (Shapes) and I think we're up there with the best. The Brits bang on about how great their crisps are and they have some okayish options, but overall I was distinctly underwhelmed.

  •  

    Damn hot and spicy is the one not half price :( That's the best one.

    These are surprisingly good. Actually, even borderline shockingly good.

    I haven't tasted chips these yummy in years.

  •  

    Which Woolies have the Hot n Spicy spotted at $2?

  •  

    I assume not all stores would stock this?

    $1.50 for 50g is not a good deal at all.

    •  

      Good point. Will give it a miss

    •  

      Good for the people that want a small chip/crisp hit ( like me)

      its like comparing cheap wines with expensive wines for $/mL and saying dont ever try past the cleanskins

      this is a different kind of chip with different flavours. different horses for different courses

  •  

    May contain Phenylalanine (in capital and bold). Yuuuum!

  •  

    It looks like Chinese version not Japanese

  •  

    Didn't know they stock these…. Are they good?

  •  

    Does anybody have any idea why they stopped selling the original BBQ flavour in Australia? I haven't seen them anywhere (yes, I've checked Asian supermarkets too).

    I couldn't find these at my local Woolies :(
