Japanese ramen chain Ippudo celebrates its 35th anniversary with a special Shiromaru Motoaji potato chip flavor. The ramen flavor chips celebrate the restaurant founded in Hakata Fukuoka. The signature ramen flavor is a pork stock tonkotsu, full of rich and creamy flavors. Ippudo works in collaboration with Yamayoshi Seiko to create the new chip flavor.
It is named Shiromaru Motoaji, after the original Shiromaru ramen, replicating the classic broth and aroma of the soup base. The packaging also references the signature bowl of ramen. Based on a clear white background, the iconic Ippudo logo can be seen in the middle of the bag over two chips that rest over one another. The Shiromaru Motoaji chips are set to launch in convenience stores in Japan beginning today.
