This bag of shrimp chips was sent to me from a fellow snacker on Instagram @snacks_with_miss_wolf.
Calbee Kappa Ebisen Shrimp Chips are from Japan. These are made with whole shrimps. Yes, including the shell, so plenty of calcium. No wonder these have a strong smell of boiled shrimp. The texture is a medium-hard crunch with an airy interior. In comparison to Cheetos crunchy, these are 20% harder and has 30% lesser interior.⠀
After a few bites, it turns into oatmeal like consistency, dramatically speaking. The MSG and salt level felt less than the iconic pink bag version. While the shrimp flavor remains the same.
