Japanese potato snacks


One of my girlfriend’s co-worker recently visited Japan and brought a bunch of these potato snackĀ  back with her. Jaga Pokkuru, Hokkaido Premium Potato. From first glance they look like those veggie straws you can purchase at Costco and I thought it would taste something similar to them. To my surprise they weren’t anything like I expected, it actually feels and taste like you are eating a french fry but in a chip form. Each individual stick is very dense just like a potato. It kinda of has that hickory sticks flavor to it. Props to Japan for creating this.
