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).

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.
