I Tried Making Potato Potage Soup with Jagariko Potato Sticks

Calbee is a leading Japanese snack food manufacturer with an overwhelming share in Japan’s market.

Speaking of Calbee, Calbee Jagariko and Calbee Potato Chips are 2 potato snacks that represent Japan and are loved by many Japanese, both adults and children.

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

The potato stick is made by deep-frying steamed potatoes and tastes great with a pleasant crispy texture, which also has tiny bits of carrot and parsley in it.

From these features, in Japan, some people like creating their own food recipes using Calbee Japariko and posting those on the internet.

Viewing one of them, I got curious about it. This is why I have decided to make it, potato potage soup with Jagariko.

5. Microwave the cup until hot. Ready to eat, Enjoy!


The potato potage soup unexpectedly tastes pretty good. It isn’t weak in taste and has a nice mushy consistency of potatoes.

It may also be interesting and fun to make the soup with another flavor of Jagariko.
