Wasabi Chips - Taste testing flavored Shrimp Chips by Calbee

Wasabi flavored baked shrimp chips are a great snack to enjoy, instead of regular American greasy potato chips. These shrimp chips are baked, not fried, and have a delicious warm wasabi dusting on each chip. These wheat puffs snacks are produced by Calbee, a Japanese company committed to harnessing nature's gifts and contributing to their customer's healthy lifestyles. Established in 1949, Calbee continues to innovate food products while focusing on sustainable development goals to create the future of food for a healthy society.


Their honorable corporate philosophy is reflected in the quality of their food products. These shrimp chips are no exception. They have been a customer favorite for over 50 years. The delicious flavor of these chips is what makes them so popular. They are made from wild-caught sea shrimp, which are mixed with natural ingredients, dried, cut, and baked to perfection. This long-time best-selling product in Japan is quickly becoming a preferred snack among American buyers. They are a healthy alternative to potato chips and are great for kids too.


Calbee Shrimp Chips are preferred over other brands of shrimp chips since they come in a variety of flavors. These are wasabi flavored, but you can enjoy other authentic flavors, including hot garlic, yuzu and black pepper, and classic original. Some other brands of shrimp chips smell a bit too fishy, but the ones from Calbee don't have an excessively shrimpy smell. These chips are very crunchy and light. The crunchy texture is complemented by a salty flavor with just a hint of sweetness.

The expiration date is listed on the back of the bag and lasts a long time, about four months. But as soon as you begin eating these, you won't want to stop. Now, I will open up this bag and show you the texture of the shrimp chips. The wasabi flavor is spicy and warm. It goes nicely on these chips. I highly recommend these shrimp chips. Be sure to share them with your family and friends, but don't forget to save some to enjoy at home to satisfy your cravings.
