Hit up any convenience store in Japan and you’re sure to find these beauties – edamame chips (can you call them crisps?). I don’t know how else to describe them, but they are a house party favourite, and my go to for party or hanami munchies.
They taste great paired with your favourite drink, because, well, they taste amazing anyway – I’ve never met anyone who didn’t like them.
If you like your regular, fresh edamame, then these will steal your heart (and your taste buds).
This particular version is new on the convenience store scene, but holds its own for being the new kid on the block.
What it has going for it it that it is not fried, unlike its larger packaged counterpart, and comes in a nice size for one.
As I’m an all or nothing, the packet of biccies or none, kind of girl, these are an amazing solution to my conundrum.
And they’re just as yummy as the originals in their own right, although to say they taste exactly the same would be a lie.
I’m not saying that I’m giving up the originals to infinity and beyond, but these definitely hit the spot when I have a craving only my beloved ビーノ (Beano) can satisfy and I’m snacking solo.
If you can try them, do! And let me know what you think in the comments below.
