Snack Time: Oishi Gourmet Picks Potato Chips in Salted Egg Flavor

What?! Just when I thought we're over the salted egg phase, a big basket filled with bright yellow bags of potato chips suddenly arrived on my door step. I was seriously so surprised to received this as I didn't know a delivery was to be made and I've never seen this specific chip variant ever before.

It's the new Oishi Gourmet Picks Potato Chips in...*dan dan dan dannnn*...Salted Egg Flavor!

If you remember back when I was still residing in the Lion City, I got into this major salted egg craze starting from that memorable dinner at Irvin's Live Seafood House. Yes, that popular salted egg chips that got the entire region hoarding actually had a full service restaurant before and that's where those chips were born. Two years after that visit, the entire Lion City went Salted Egg crazy! From the traditional liu sha bao (salted egg custard bun) to all sorts of creative salted egg infused dishes from Chicken Cordon Bleu stuffed with Salted Egg, Salted Egg Pasta, Salted Egg Pizza, Salted Egg Croissant and of course, my all time favorite -- Salted Egg Pork Ribs.

That salted egg craze has spread like wildfire and it has reached our shores. I have to say though that I was quite impressed by Oishi's take on the famous Salted Egg Potato Chips. First, let's talk about the packaging. Contained in a bright yellow bag, you'll sure catch this among all the potato chips displayed in the supermarket shelf. Secondly, the taste. The salted egg flavor was definitely very present and I love how the chips stayed so crisp. Making this is easy and challenging at the same time. I have attempted to do so twice and it was quite a challenge to keep the chips crisp over a long period of time. Given that the way this chips were made involved a more advanced process, I love how the flavor was evenly spread out that not a single chip was left unflavored or not coated by the salted egg flavoring. I also love that the salted egg has a sweeter taste and it wasn't too rich or overwhelming at all.

Lastly, the price. For a little over Php. 30, you get a bag of Oishi Gourmet Picks Salted Egg Chips. That's literally a tiny fraction vs. how much the famous branded salted egg potato chips costs. In other words, you get more bang for your buck with the Oishi Gourmet Picks Salted Egg Chips. I got a basket of about a dozen chips and I happily spent the recent Holy Week snacking on these regularly.

Grab your own bag of Oishi Gourmet Picks Salted Egg Chips at any major supermarket near you. Enjoy!
