'Jagariko' potato sticks - Salad

Posted by Linda on 04. 2011 0 comments 0 trackback
'Jagariko' is the name of this popular potato stick snack brand from Calbee (the most recognized Japanese chips manufacturer)...this was my first encounter with the brand, although I did hear quite a lot about the brand beforehand. Anyway, so I ordered the salad flavor @ NapaJapan for my first Jagariko experience:

I was rather surprised at how over-cooked those potato sticks were, resulting in the sticks being hard and dry...which was a bit of a disappointment for me, as I like my potato sticks to be just like french fries, retaining some of its moist, soft flesh. But these potato sticks were fried so intensely right through. Also, the sticks were much shorter, and the container was much smaller than I had expected.
But all is not lost, because of the intensity of the frying of the potato sticks, they were amazingly crunchy & crispy, and the seasonings were really nice.

My rating (overall):

I would've given it 5 stars, but I took some points off for the potato sticks being too over-cooked for my taste, and with the amount of the sticks being much too less than I had expected.

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.
