Calbee Japan gets beefy with Ikinari Steak flavored potato chips
Japanese restaurant chain Ikinari Steak accomplished two big milestones this past month. First, they opened their fourth store in New York, a big step forward in plans to expand internationally. Perhaps more importantly though, they teamed with snack maker Calbee to produce their own flavor of potato chips. The limited edition Ikinari Steak flavor chips arrived in convenience stores. These snacks combine the rich taste of beef with the franchise’s own special steak sauce. Besides that combo of tastes, the chips found in every bag (¥152 after tax) are a thicker cut, adding a satisfying crunch to each bite.
