Osatsu Doki: Satsumaimo Sweet Potato Chips from UHA
When it comes to Japanese potato chips using the Satsuma-Imo (さつまいも) sweet potato, what comes to many people’s minds is Calbee’s Osatsu Snack (おさつスナック) or UHA Mikakuto’s Osatsu Doki (おさつどきっ).
Osatsu Doki Chips from UHA Mikakuto
While the former is a seasonal product only sold in the Autumn and Wintertime, the latter, Osatsu Doki chips, are available throughout the year, and I’m more familiar with this.
UHA Osatsu Doki has been around since 1983, and now, the snack comes in 2 flavors: プレーン/plain and 塩バター/salt butter. In its name, Osatsu (おさつ) stands for Satsumaimo, and Doki (どきっ) is the Japanese onomatopoeia for a heartbeat.
These Osatsu Doki chips are light and crisp, making the most of the taste of Satsumaimo sweet potato; The snack only has a faint salty-butter flavor, which nicely accentuates the original taste of Satsumaimo.
These crisps are fried using good quality oil and are healthy with plenty of dietary fiber. Plus, they are full of natural deliciousness!
