Calbee seaweed & salt potato chips?

Any local sightings of these Japanese chips? They're available mail-order but that jacks up the cost.

  1. I used to get them at the sweet shop on 9th and I think Harrison in Oakland Chinatown. God I love those, haven't had em for years. Wonder if 99 Ranch has them?

    1. fairly sure i've seen these at the 16th and mission walgreens, which has a largish japanese snack section for some reason.

      1. The Calbee chips worth looking out for are the "kata-age" thick chips made "kettle style". They come in many flavors; my favorites are Yuzu Kosho, Garlic and Nori.

        1. There are some on Amazon 12 for $ 20.31

          1. calbee's shop at westfield, s.f. closed recently.

            calbee has a manufacturing plant in farifield, ca.
