The new flavors of Jack ‘n Jill Calbee snacks was delivered to me a few weeks ago. I love potato chips and so it’s always a delight to receive those goodies. Especially if it’s from Universal Robina Corp.
I noticed that these snacks are different from the ones I usually buy at the groceries. I realized that these are new chips in unique flavors. But as much as I want to down them immediately, I was too busy in the past weeks that I opted to put the Jack ‘n Jill Calbee treats in the kitchen cupboard.
It was only a couple of days that I realized I have them hidden. I actually forgot about them. I grabbed the packs as soon as I see them.
I was intrigued at the Jack ‘n Jill Calbee Ripples. These are wavy-cut potato chips in Classic Sour Cream and Onion flavor, and the truly Japanese Nori flavor. I opted to start with the latter just out of curiosity.I can eat Nori, but only in sushi. There was a time when a friend gave me a pack of Nori snacks but I found the flavor too strong to my liking. Not the Nori-flavored Ripples. The flavor is actually light and not overpowering, I was able to finish my share of the family pack.
A day after, my auntie was munching on the Spicy Pizza Potato. I was actually planning of keeping it for myself because it’s a small pack, haha! So I joined and started to dig in.
My auntie, a picky eater, liked the Jack ‘n Jill Calbee Spicy Pizza Potato. I totally agree. The spice and pizza flavor is perfect.
Just this week, I munched on the Classic Sour Cream and Onion flavor while working. This variant has a very light flavor, I’m unable to distinguish the sour cream nor onion. It’s a good thing that I love potatoes.
I remember the time Jack ‘n Jill and Calbee inked a partnership to bring Japan’s leading snack brand in the Philippines. Since then, it’s one of the chips that I buy whenever I want one. It’s good to see that the partnership has been very fruitful and that they continue to innovate.
I wonder what would the next flavors be. I’m sure we’ll be snacking more with Jack ‘n Jill Calbee. Keep up with new updates on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/JacknJillCalbee.PH), Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/JacknJillCalbee) and Instagram (@JacknJillCalbee).
