White chocolate-covered cheese potato chips is the newest WTF product from ROYCE’. Their website describes it as “potato chip chocolate fromage buran” which is Japanese-franglais for a boxed abortion of cheesy chocolate deep-fried potato chip-like snack. The chips in the photo below tasted even worse than they look—They taste like the smell of over-ripe cheese that was deep-fried in sweaty tennis shoes that were chocolate-coated and then aged in a sack of last year’s potatoes.
Yes, yes, I know that chocolate-covered potato chips have been around for decades. However, these particular white chocolate cheesy chips are both painfully precious (at 800 yen or $8 USD for an 80g box) and especially nasty.
PS: Does anybody know why the company has misspelled their trademarked name with a spurious apostrophe at the end of ROYCE’?
