Where to Find: Royce's Chocolate-Covered Potato Chips?

They're from Japan, and rumored to be the gold standard in chocolate covered potato chips.
Has anyone spotted them in any of the local Japanese stores? Wonder if they're at Mitsuwa.....
re: Jim Leff
If they are from Japan Mitsuwa would be the place to find it. Chocolate covered potato chips are very difficult to make commercially because they are so light in weight. I was going to manufacture them, but it was too difficult to do. Pretzels are easy, that's why you see them more often. Potato chips are good to do at home, especially with a Cottage fry chip or Canyon Cut chip which are thicker. Just dip half of it and chill. Good Luck with Mitsuwa.
I bought their regular chocolate(not the fresh kind which needs to be refrigerated) but to me, it really wasn't all that different from cheap supermarket chocolates sold at various Japanese grocery stores. They just didn't have the rich flavor of chocolate you'd expect from a gourmet shop. Maybe some people prefer lighter flavor of chocolate? I don't know. It also had articial flavor as ingredient.
I am going to try their chocolate covered potato chips and Name chocolate in the near future.
