Not the very top but pretty close So it's a pretty cold area, very beautiful But, the first Japanese snack that I ever fell in love with was... THESE! These are Wasabeef Wasabeef: Wasabi & Beef flavoured potato chips And I was just sooo in love with these I think I made my first cell phone mail address So I was just so in love with this chips and I've always liked them since then Yesterday I was at the supermarket and I found these! So these are the original, and these are the ones I found yesterday What these are is wasabi-nuki Wasabeef "without wasabi" These are Wasabeef without the wasabi Which leaves you with Beef & Beef... so these are beef flavour I really wanted to try them These are so "natsukashii" for me When I see a new version of them, I just have to try it At the top here it says: We listened to your requests and started selling these! I guess this is the Twitter account of the company that makes these apparently they got lots of requests for wasabi-nuki Wasabeef So I hope they're good! Let's try them! First I'm going to try the originals and try my best to explain the flavour to you guys They just look like regular potato chips Nothing really special about the appearance kinda orange itadakimasu! They're so good! They're very similar to a barbecue flavoured chip Kinda sweet Then just a slight hint of wasabi flavour They're not super spicy or anything But I always feel like when you get near the bottom of the bag your mouth is just starting to burn I love these so much And the chips themselves are really flaky and... Hard to explain... they're not super crunchy they're just like flaky... like a flaky pie crust kind of Please try these if you come to Japan, can't recommend them enough Alright, now for the wasabi-nuki Wasabeef Beef & Beef flavour I'm excited Oh they look the same! Oh these ones are a little less orange! Which is interesting... pretty similar though itadakimasu! They taste completely different! Whoaaa... I wasn't expecting them to taste this different They're a really subtle flavor and they really do taste like beef they definitely have a meaty flavour to them the Wasabeef ones, not so much. It's kinda like a smokey BBQ kinda flavour But these definitely taste like beef I don't really like these, the flavour is really subtle They're okay They're okay... they still have the same awesome texture of the originals, which I like But the flavour itself isn't very good on the back here it's got a funny story explaining how this whole wasabi-nuki Wasabeef started It started out as an April Fool's joke on the Yamayoshi Seika twitter in 2014 But some people thought it would be interesting if they actually existed, so... We promised to create wasabi-nuki Wasabeef if our tweet got 80,044 retweets In the end we didn't reach that number, but it got retweeted over 41,000 times, more than expected and we got replies like "I want to try them!" "Please actually make these!" So we decided to start selling them! Interesting! Well, that's how these came about and I think that's really cool that they attempted making them just because everyone thought it'd be interesting But I'm not very impressed with the flavour They're ok! They're not bad. It's just that these ones are so good that you can't really make anything better than them So definitely try these, these are amazing I hope they're around forever So those were "Wasabeef potato chips"! Thanks for watching guys, bye!
