I Tried Making Potato Potage Soup with Jagariko Sticks

Calbee is a leading Japanese snack food manufacturer with an overwhelming market share in Japan. Speaking of Calbee, loved by many Japanese, both adults and children, Calbee Jagariko and Calbee Potato Chips are 2 potato snacks that represent Japan.

Actually, today I bought the Calbee Jagariko Potato Stick Salad Flavor at a supermarket near my house, for I wanted to try making a soup dish with the potato fries.

The potato stick Jagariko is produced by deep-frying steamed potatoes with tiny bits of carrot and parsley. It tastes great with a pleasant crispy texture, and because of those features, some Japanese like creating their own food recipes using the Japariko fries and post them on the internet.

Viewing one of them, I got curious about it, which is why I decided to make it, potato potage soup using Jagariko fries.

The potato potage soup unexpectedly tastes pretty good. It isn’t weak in taste and has a nice thick consistency from potatoes. It may also be interesting and fun to make the soup with another flavor of Jagariko, I think.
