Japan has had plenty of special Pringles flavors over the years, but these chips are solely for another nation.
While I can’t say I’ve never gotten homesick since moving to Japan, such feelings rarely occur when I’m hungry. Japan is a foodie’s paradise, and I’m not just talking about full meals, since you’d be hard-pressed to find a better selection of snack food anywhere on the planet.
One of the things that makes Japan such a great place to have the munchies is the constant parade of unique snack flavors. Even non-Japanese companies get in on the fun here. Take American potato chip brand Pringles, for example, which has released dozens of mouth-watering Japan exclusive flavors, including T-bone steak and wasabi seaweed.
But in a rare twist of fate, I find myself looking back across the Pacific with a tear in my eye and a rumble in my stomach, as Pringles has released ramen-flavored potato chips in the U.S.

The special chips are a joint effort with Nissin, the maker of Cup Noodles and Top Ramen brands, making their official flavor designation “Nissin Top Ramen Chicken.”
