Conbini's Way to Sell Classic Chips

Convenient stores has one good reason that keeps me visiting: the convenient store exclusive potato chip flavours that you cannot get anywhere else. Since they are exclusive, it makes me feel better when I dish out the 150yen premium price for a bag.

One day, I was craving for some seaweed flavour chips in the middle of the night, and I was surprised to see the chips set at the premium price despite the flavour being an all-time classic. I can get this for 70 yen from the supermarket, so how they can charge me double the price for it?

Then I noticed: "convenient stores exclusive size, 85g".

These chips are always sold as 60g bags, so to make me feel better, I was getting an exclusive... even if the exclusivity had little to no meaning to it.

You got me, convenient stores, you got me once again!



Games, manga, and ramen. Those three things make up my Tri-force lol.
