Hula's Sour Cream Maui Chips: These potato chips are marketed as being made using "American Potato Chip Methods" but are fully Japanese, first developed by a Japanese man who spent time in Hawaii during WWII. By "American Method," I think it's referring to a kettle style potato chip that's thicker and crunchier than most potato chips you can find in Japan, which tend to be almost translucent in thinness. To me, the sour cream flavor tasted even more tangy and creamy than the sour cream and onion chips I've had in the U... (read more) 4.0/5.0

Koikeya Strong Sour Cream and Onion Potato Chips: These chips taste like the Japanese version of Ruffles Sour Cream and Onion Chips except that the flavor is stronger on tangy sour cream taste, which I enjoy even more. I get the sense that Koikeya is sort of like the Frito Lay's of Japan, since their brands are everywhere and especially prominent in convenience stores. Overall, a familiar but comforting junk food flavor. 3.5/5.0

Sensible Portions Sour cream and onion garden veggie crisps: The closest thing you'll find to Pringles at the co-op, these sour cream and onion potato crisps a remarkably similar flavor profile and are frankly pretty addictive. Supposedly also contains broccoli, spinach, and peas but achieves an almost identical salty, creamy onion flavor and melt-in-your-mouth texture. Purchased at the Park Slope Food Coop. 3.5/5.0

Kolsvart Turbot Sour Berry Candies: Actual Swedish fish candies from Malmo, Sweden. Raspberry-flavored, these turbot-shaped chewy gummies have a sharp but well balanced sour coating. They come from a company called Kolsvart, which literally means pitch black, a fitting name for Swedish's death metal roots. Like the Swedish Fish candies, they don't contain gelatin and are, as a result, vegan. Texturally, though, these candies have a softer texture than Swedish Fish; they're similar to Sour Patch Kids, but with a more natur... (read more) 3.5/5.0

Baked in Brooklyn Sour Cream and Onion Pita Chips: I fittingly bought these pita chips from Foodtown in Brooklyn. I liked them overall - they tasted a bit like garlic bagel bites but with a slightly tangy flavor that gives sour cream and onion its character. The pita chips are what you expect: hearty and thickly cut. A healthier yet similarly tasty alternative to sour cream and onion potato chips. 3.5/5.0

Auntie Anne’s Sour cream and onion pretzell: Almost missed my flight to get this pretzel since they needed 10 minutes to “bake it fresh.” Surprised to find it’s actually the plain pretzels with a heavy coating of powdered seasoning. The sour cream and onion flavor was insane, with an ultra tangy sour cream flavor that had a sharp aftertaste like sweet onion. It was kind of like the coating on sour cream and onion Pringles except 2x more concentrated. The pretzel was very buttery but had a nice soft texture. Actually pretty good for an...
