GRAND Calbee's thick cut potato chips are three times as thick as ordinary chips, made to be giftable and gourmet. The exclusive, extra thick potato chips come with a nice price tag to match too, with its 15 gram packs selling for $4, plus even more steeply priced options.

As far as what you can expect the Calbee chips to taste like, there are three categories offered: Plain, Meal and Dessert, which include unusual varieties like tomato and cheese, strawberry and burnt milk.

In April, the Hankyu department store in Osaka, Japan, will launch the first GRAND Calbee retail outlet, where potato chip connoisseurs will flock to try these unusually flavored, priced and thick gourmet chips.
