Bourbon 'Petit' series - mini Peas & Consommé potato chips

Posted by Linda on 17. 2014 0 comments

I hope you all had a joyous Xmas and New Year celebrations I do sincerely apologize for not updating for soooo long, believe it or not, while most people were enjoying the relaxing holiday season, I still had to go to work during this busy summer break! During the course of the holiday period, I've been working 6 days a week because I had to fill-in for several colleagues who went on vacations on top of working my own shifts! so I didn't have much free time during the past several weeks. But now that some of my colleagues have returned from their holidays, I'm finally back to working only 4 days a week, thus I finally have the free time to update my blogs again

Anyway, moving onto my food reviews for today, I think it's rather obvious judging from my more recent reviews that I've developed an 'obsession' for Bourbon's 'Petit' series snacks (as I had emphasized once before), they are just too irresistibly good! so it shouldn't come as a total surprise that today I will be reviewing 2 more snacks from the company's most popular snack brand!
So I went to Maruyu again last week and bought these Peas and Consommé flavoured mini potato chips from the 'Petit' series. I often say that Japan is a country that has practically everything, and it could not be more true, Japan has literally everything from the super cool stuff to the adoringly kawaii things, the interesting things, and then there's the downright bizarre and wacky. This is why I love Japan and find it to be such a fascinating country, they have the cool, kawaii, interesting, innovative, bizarre and wacky all combined into 1 nation! and the Japanese do love to come up with some weird and wacky flavour ideas for their snacks and junk food such as their soy sauce and wasabi flavoured Kit Kats, and corn potage or some other savory flavoured ice pops/popsicles. And that's certainly the case again here, I mean, who besides the Japanese would think of peas or consommé flavoured potato chips? None, only the Japanese would!

Anyway, I'll review the consommé flavoured potato chips first:
the texture of the potato chips themselves was perfect; crispy and crunchy but not too hard, and they were seasoned very well and rather accurately. Consommé powder was used to generously season the chips, which helped to infuse a pleasantly substantial and rich flavour of consommé to the chips. I was able to taste the slight meaty flavour and a very faint hint of vegetables from the seasoning; all the flavours that are typically found in consommés. Surprisingly, the consommé flavour blended rather well with the potato chips.
Overall, as with most of the snacks in Bourbon's 'Petit' series, these mini consommé flavoured potato chips were lip-smackingly delectable; great texture and very flavorsome and perfect to snack on anytime anywhere, would I buy this again? Absolutely! Only the Japanese could think of using some bizarre and wacky flavours for their snacks and somehow still execute them right!

My rating (overall):

Now let's move on to the Peas chips:

unlike the consomme flavoured chips which were flavored with powdered seasonings, REAL peas were incorporated into the potato chips prior to frying, hence the extensive green colour of the chips, and the infusion of the real peas gave the chips a more authentic peas flavour, the use of real peas also changed the texture of the chips in the sense that they became slightly more crumbly than usual.
Overall, this is another greatly executed snack from Bourbon, beautifully textured chips with authentic peas flavour, I think they're even better than the consommé flavored chips and the mini regular potato chips have these mini peas chips become one of my favorites in the 'Petit' series? Yes definitely!

My rating (overall):

With so many reviews lately about Bourbon's 'Petit' series snacks, I'm sure some of you may have already started to feel a bit annoyed by my obsession for the popular snack brand, so I promise that next time I'll review about something else

Anyway, it's almost 12am here and I still need to go to work tomorrow, so I'm going to bed now, until next time, sayonara!

Although the 'Kit Kat' confection originates in England & is produced worldwide by Nestlé (and Hershey in the US only), most of the KK bars I review about are Japanese flavours from Nestlé Japan.
