We’re all for a pack of potato chips, especially if they’re experimenting with cool and unusual flavors because you’d never know when you come across a winner. And it seems like no one is holding back when it comes to coming up with unique flavors. We pulled together 10 bizarre and unusual potato chips from around the world that you can now get in Singapore, although we can’t guarantee that’ll they are all good!
1. Chitato’s Indomie Mie Goreng Chips
Two of Indonesia’s giant food brands come together for a sensational bag of instant noodle-flavoured potato chips! Chitato’s Mie Goreng Chips is basically what we expected it to taste like: like a bag of Chitatos that someone emptied a pack of Mie Goreng seasoning into. Fans of Indomie will be able to pick out the notes of sesame oil, chili, soy sauce, and pepper as they crunch through the bag. One bag is definitely not enough and our only gripe is that they should be selling these in bigger packs.
