Calbee - "Is this Ootoro flavor?" - flavored Potato Chips

Calbee just released interestingly flavored - and interestingly named - potato chip(s) in a limited quantity.

They named the flavor "これって?大トロ味 (Korette? Ootoro-aji)", which means "Is this Fatty Tuna flavor?" in Japanese.

It's commonly said that it tastes like fatty tuna when you eat avocado, soy sauce, and wasabi together at the same time. These limited edition potato chips reproduce the taste of a mixture of avocado, soy sauce and wasabi, and that is why the flavor has the name.

I think that avocado's rich and soft texture takes a big role in order to make the mixture taste like fatty tuna. Potato chips will definitely lose the texture. Probably, Calbee should have named the chips Wasabi flavor? Please let us know if you try it by chance!

The price is ¥120 for 60g and ¥150 for 85g package. That's like one U.S. dollar.
