Gyudon Pringles

I was at 7-11 today picking up a few bits and pieces, and saw these bad boys on the shelf...

Gyudon Pringles photoGyudon flavored pringles! I love a good beef bowl, and they were one of the first Japanese food items I felt comfortable ordering when we first moved here. I didn’t pick these up, but I was curious - has anyone else given them a try yet? Are they good, or is it better spending a few hundred yen on the real thing at Yoshinoya or Sukiya?

Do you have any favorite limited edition Japanese pringles varieties you’ve enjoyed?



After spending the last several years in the beating heart of Tokyo, I will be spending the next three in the countryside of Japan. I adore this country and all it has to offer - and I'm always learning more and more about life here as I go along!

    I want to try them! I don't really even like gyudon. I bet it would taste more like onions than anything.

    A friend bought these and we had a try. They didn't taste like gyudon at all, unfortunately. More like an overpowering onion and salt flavor. (Good call @edthethe) I'd say pass or try them if someone else offers to share, hah.
