Hello! As I had really enjoyed the Frito Lay Takoyaki Tei corn puffs, I decided to be brave and try another unusual snack I was avoiding; the OZACK Fried Gyoza Chips.
OZACK Fried Gyoza Chips
Of course, this rather unusual snack came into my life via an OyatsuBox. I haven’t tried gyoza before, but I understand it is a Japanese dumpling filled with meat and vegetables and wrapped in a thin dough. These crisps aim to replicate the taste of gyoza, but what they would taste like if they were deep fried.
I had some fears about the scent of these chips but upon opening actually the scent was pleasant; it was a mixture of spicy and meaty.
The texture of these chips reminds me of Pop Chips. They feel slightly thicker and heavier compared to normal chips, which I think gives them a good crunch. The flavour is spicy, and at times rather salty. They definitely have a deep friend taste, which is quite unusual. I didn’t expect a literal deep fried taste. The spiciness of the flavour makes my lips, mouth and back of throat tingle. Yes I know what that sounds like… *logs off the Internet forever*
I would imagine savoury fans really enjoying these chips. I didn’t mind them, and they were a good companion whilst watching Orange is the New Black, but I wouldn’t buy them again. They haven’t quite captured my heart the way Takoyaki Tei did. I can’t imagine getting a craving for them so bad that I had to repurchase them. However, I am relieved that they didn’t have a bad scent like the Calbee Hot Chili Chips did… *shudders*
They are out of stock on OyatsuCafe at the moment, but it wouldn’t surprise me if OyatsuCafe began to stock them permanently due to requests from subscribers. I can imagine these being very popular. If they come back in stock, I’ll let you all know!
Are you a fan of gyoza? Is it something I need to try for real?
