Pickle-flavored Pringles

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!

If you’d like to visit the Village Vanguard store in Shimo-kitazawa the next time you’re in Tokyo, more pictures and directions are on my website, The Tokyo Guide I Wish I’d Had.
