Real Snacks' Salty Licorice Chips Bring the Candy Flavor to Potato Chips

Real Snacks, a Finnish snack company that produces options like potato chips and oat-based crackers, has recently released its Salty Licorice chips as part of the company's 'Chipventures' line. Chipventures offers unique and outlandish flavors for potato chips, as the Salty Licorice chips show.

Real Snack's new Chipventure flavor shows the company's commitment to creativity. Firstly, licorice is far from the first flavor profile that one would readily associate with potato chips — in fact, the anise-like flavor is unique and peculiar even within the spectrum of candy. Further, black licorice and salt don't typically go together, with licorice more often getting sweetness added rather than saltiness. However, since salt and potato chips have such a strong connection, adding salt to the Salty Licorice chips makes for an oddly savory combination.
