We missed you, Kentucky Fried Chips.

I’ve had many good days at work since I started writing for SoraNews24, but one of the best was the day I got to eat a lot for work KFC flavoured potato chips. I’m not just saying that because I managed to turn this taste test task into something that I can drink bourbon during work hours. The collaboration between KFC Japan and the Japanese snack manufacturer Calbee The result was truly exceptionally delicious potato chips.

Unfortunately, KFC potato chips have been out of stores since 2015, so maybe it’s a small apology for having to wait so long, because now that they’re finally coming back, Calbee is releasing not one, but two different KFC chips..

The first is KFC Original Chicken Flavorwhich, according to Calbee, recreates the taste sensations of the fried chicken recipe that KFC founder Colonel Sanders created back in 1940, thus remaining true to the almost century-old tradition it embodies. Alternatively, for those who want more spice than history, there is the KFC Red Hot Chicken Flavorwith white and red pepper and habanero chili. Both flavors have been monitored and approved by KFC Japanto ensure that fans of fried poultry also get their money’s worth.

Calbee hasn’t announced a suggested retail price yet, but since the KFC potato chips are sold in Japanese convenience stores, we can assume they won’t cost more than a few hundred yen. Both flavors hit stores on July 8 and are expected to be available until mid-August. Limited-time flavors like this one usually come with a “or while supplies last” caveat, though, so you’ll probably want to grab your bags early.
