Sweet salt flavour (Calbee)

2 out of 5 stars

What’s sweet salt supposed to taste like? We’re not so sure, but if it's the same as what this tastes like, then we're sad to report that it's nothing to get excited about. Is it sweet? Yes. Is it salty? Also yes. Will we buy it again? Nope.

Yuzushio beef (Yamayoshi)

4 out of 5 stars

For yuzu lovers out there, this is the one for you. You can smell the sweet aroma of yuzu as soon as you open the packet, and while the flavour of beef is nowhere to be found, the subtle hints of 'shio' (Japanese for salt) more than make up for it. All flavours are well balanced with this one.

French beef in red wine (Calbee)

2 out of 5 stars

Beef and red wine – the perfect combination, right? Sure, but probably not when it comes to crisps. You can definitely taste the beef here but red wine? Sorry, not doing it for us. The so-called red wine tastes more like star anise, and if you're not a fan of this spice, then it's best to leave this one on the shelves.

Ginger and chicken pot (Koikeya)

4 out of 5 stars

Hands down one of our favourites. The flavour of ginger is pronounced but balances well with the chicken. Fair warning though, the ginger lingers in your mouth and has a slight kick to it, so if spicy foods are not your friend, go easy with this one.

Fermented bean curd pork knuckle (Jack 'n Jill)

1 out of 5 stars

If you're not a fan of intense flavours, then we urge you to stay away from this one. The taste of fermented bean curd is quite predominant, and the taste of pork knuckle is, well, non-existent. Have a glass of water ready if you're feeling brave enough to try.
