When one first comes upon the phrase 'shrimp-flavored chips,' a cornucopia of images may come to mind: shrimp, flavor, chips...
Personally, when I first encountered a product claiming to taste like my third favorite shellfish, my imagination ran amok with fantasies of what awaited me, concealed in this garish plastic tomb.





There, modest in appearance but outspoken in odor (my first time opening the product, my sister remarked that it would make the whole house smell of a woman's unwashed genitals. Truly!), were the pearls promising pungent piquancy. Look at how they seem to naturally embrace, like two lovers aside a mountain stream.



Unfortunately, something was amiss; accompanying the unmistakable taste of shrimp was a crass, biting after taste, similar to when one is punched in the mouth then licks horseradish. No!
But it was! I had mistakenly purchased the wasabi flavored chips. Look at how the creatures weep as they are smothered, their natural flavors choked to extinction by the intruder.

If only it were not for the wasabi... 1/5

A hoi hoi hoi. A most favorable review! I deem it worthy of 3, nay but 4 monocles out of 5. HOLY JESUS! I DIDN'T THINK ANYONE WOULD ACTUALLY POST ANYTHING EXCEPT ME/VK. 8D

If I had a camera, I might post things. My bf might be getting one for his birthday, though so in AUGUST I might! Dun dun dunnnnnn.

And to OP/everyone: I love shrimp chips! Which is odd, since I hate shrimp. I have not seen that brand nor any other wasabi flavoured ones (they do indeed sound questionable) but I like the Hot & Spicy ones by some other random brand.

Ok did it or did it not taste exactly like fish food? Because that's the impression I got.

When I first tried the plain flavor it most definitely did. But this wasabi kind is so overpowering the fish food taste is lost.

A most poignant tale of snack food-savoring woe, and by all accounts an excellent contribution to this humble community. Should you venture again into the perilous- yet rewarding- land of seafood flavored crisps, I highly recommend sampling cuddlefish chips.
