A pack of the Butter Soy Sauce chips costs 152 yen ($1.40), according to IT Media. According to SoraNews24, the combination of the chips being microwaved along with their buttery flavor is quite possible game-changing.
The snack is flavored with butter from Hokkaido, Japan’s northernmost prefecture known not only for its top-class seafood but also high-quality dairy products.
Those not into the combination of butter and soy sauce can wait for the second flavor in the series, Renji de Pizza Potato, which promises 25% more cheese than Calbee’s current line of pizza-flavored chips.
The snack will launch on March 12 for 173 yen ($1.60), just a little bit more costly than Butter Soy Sauce.
Calbee’s new snacks are exclusive to FamilyMart outlets, according to PR Times. Customers can prepare and eat them right there as nearly all Japanese convenience stores have microwave ovens for use.
