Does anyone know where I can find/order wasabi-flavored potato chips? [mi]

Some while back, I bought some Calbee brand wasabi flavored chips in Hong Kong. I've never managed to find them since, although I've found other people who want them too -- one of whom has a picture of the bag.

Ideas? I've never managed to find these online -- the closest I can find are wasabi-prawn crisps, which aren't what I'm looking for.

Different brand, but here are Soken Wasabi chips. I also suspect if you have an Asian market in your area, they'll have some.

Tim's Cascade Style Chips produced a limited run of wasabi flavored chips early this year.

It is a good thing that they were limited, because they tasted really, really bad.

You know they stopped making Wasabi chips after all those children were killed. Tims Cascade Wasabi chips tasted pretty incredulous.

Trader Joe's carries some under their own brand name, although they're probably made by another company.

Not exactly potato chips, but I love Kasugai's roasted wasabi peas -- "a happy present from the earth"! I haven't ordered them online, but I buy bags of them from delis whenever I go back to New York. They're so addictive (and contain no prawns). Potatoes, peas; what's the difference when they're crunchy and set your mouth afire?

(Sadly, the asianfoodgrocer.com site doesn't seem to have the chips you were seeking, though it's got plenty of other weirdness.)

Wow, I thought for sure J-List would carry them, but they don't seem to. They do have a rice snack with a shrimp and wasabi flavor, though.
