They've got all these kinds of hybrid things out now - chips made of beans, "popped" corn chips, etc. They're all pretty terrible, as far I can tell.

Good shout on the Zapp's, Count, love me those. Utz, not so much. They're out of PA, so they don't hold the charm of limited availability/exoticism.

When you say "rumor," it makes it sound like the CEO didn't say they were developing the idea, whereas my understanding is that she did in fact say that. The extremity of the backlash may have been unwarranted (or not, that's debatable), but that's something else.

Calbee is the number one Japanese maker of chips and on the market shelves right next to Calbee's "lightly salted" chips, the normal potato chip, are the seaweed and salt flavored ones. I usually choose the normal chips but these are fine. When i first came to Japan a good Japanese chip was rare. The best ones may have been Pringles but now the Japanese make a fantastic variety of potato chips.

Calbee is common in Hong Kong too. I think they even have a factory here. They’re fine but not up to the standard of UK brands but will do at a pinch. I like their French fry type things (jagabee?)
