Chips are often one of those snacks that undergoes creative topping makeovers that play around with a variety of unconventional ingredients, and these strawberry flavored crisps blend the sweet aroma of berries with the salty and deep fried texture of chips. The snack is surprisingly sweet in flavor, having a taste that is noted to be similar to strawberry shortcake.

While there are hundreds of different flavored crisps on the market, often times the invigorating tastes stick to savory ingredients. These chips hailing from Japan opt for a sweeter topping with Japanese tochiotome strawberry and shortcake powder garnish. The chips take on the sweeter aroma while maintaining a crunchy texture. The idea to use strawberry shortcake as a topping steams from the culinary tradition of serving the cake at Christmas time.
