Suppa Mucho Ume Plum Flavor Potato Chips from Koikeya

When Japanese people think of potato snacks, the first thing that comes to many people’s minds will be Calbee Potato Chips.

In fact, the series has the top share in the market. But at present, it is not available in sour flavors.

Regarding sour-acidic potato chips, Koikeya’s Suppa Mucho line is well known and has been a long-time favorite in Japan.
