Potato Chip Chocolate [Kamayaki Salt & Tennichi Shio & Sea Salt]Potato Chip Chocolate is a crispy potato chip coated with chocolate on one side. The harmony of the sweet and salty tastes that makes it addictive once you try it has been well-loved for 20 years. To commemorate its 20th anniversary, the company is offering a limited time and limited quantity of Potato Chip Chocolate with three different types of salt from various regions of Japan, each produced in a different way.
In order to better appreciate the flavor and individuality of the salt, the potato chip is coated with chocolate without salt. Three different types of salt are sprinkled on top of the chocolate. Each bag contains 80g (2.82oz) of each of the three types of salt, and is smaller than regular potato chip chocolate (190g (6.7oz)).
Kamataki saltKamadakien is salt made by concentrating seawater pumped from the waters around Aguni Island, Okinawa, and cooking it slowly in a flat pot over a wood fire. The mild saltiness, subtle sweetness, flavor and richness of the salt, which is well-balanced with minerals from the seawater, enhances the sweetness and cocoa flavor of the chocolate.
Tenpien SaltTenpien salt is made by concentrating seawater from Izu Oshima, carried by the Kuroshio Current, in the sun and crystallizing it slowly and painstakingly in small amounts in a glasshouse crystal box. The large grains of salt have a distinct salty and delicious flavor that adds richness and sharpness to the taste of chocolate.
Sea SaltMoshio is salt made by extracting the seaweed component of "brine" made by concentrating seawater pumped up from the cape of Kamikamagarijima in the Seto Inland Sea, and boiling it down in a flat pot. The salt crystals, which are slightly brown in color, have a rich, mellow sea flavor and are in perfect harmony with chocolate.
