Rating: ©©©-3/4 chips (notable)
As we taste, and review, more and more of these chips from Japan, we are beginning to wonder – more and more – if we actually have been told the correct flavor translation?!
Plain and simple, we do not know Japanese, and we are taking the eBay seller’s word for the translation of these chips.
Case in point, take a close look at the Doritos bag to the left. The small oval picture seems to contain some grilled corn on the cob, with a pad of butter drizzled in what actually looks like caramel to us. But, according to our eBay seller Market Tokyo this flavor is actually Butter Soy Sauce?!
So, that’s what we had to go with….
Is butter and soy sauce a common or authentic combination in Japan? We’re not really sure about that, but it must be a delicious combination nonetheless when the New York Times dedicates an entire article to it.
As for these Doritos, well, they are pretty darn tasty. Certainly a unique chip flavor combination that we have never tried before.
The chips sort of taste like buttered popcorn to us. Very salty buttered popcorn.
Frankly, we expected a lot more prominent soy flavors, but really all we taste is salt and butter, combined with Doritos corn tortilla chips.
Well, there you have it. Anyone else out there tried them yet? Thoughts? As always we would love to hear what you think. Agree or disagree. Let us know.
Chips purchased from market_tokyo on ebay.
