Japanese consumers eat pickles by the gallon, but not THESE kind of pickles. Rating three splats on the Sour-O-Meter, Screamin’ Dill Pickle Pringles are the most mysterious flavor I’ve seen yet. I mean, last time I checked, sourness wasn’t the most prized attribute of potato chips. I can tell they’re not a locally developed product because the legalese is all in Spanish, so it remains a total mystery to me why this store in Shimokitazawa feels their customers might crave this oddity!

“Screamin’ Dill Pickle”? Oh, I’m screaming, alright….
Actually, although this may be an old post, we have these here in the states (east coast).
Now THAT makes sense! I think dill pickle flavor is far more appreciated there than in Tokyo! Guess the only “Only In Japan” element of this post is that only in Japan would I wonder why they’re selling these here…
