Baconette Strips@Mercury Drugstore, Edsa

image

The top drugstore in the Philippines, Mercury Drugstore, from just selling medicinal products to now OTCs, consumables and even groceries. Apparently, the owner of Mercury was listed as top taxpayer in the country…estimating 150million pesos. Oh my…..my….

At the store I spotted some rather interesting looking snacks and bought some home.

Baconette chips! Apparently meat free but flavoured to taste like bacon.

Not just the taste which was really similar, it was made to mimick the real one too. Rather crunchy and nice to munch on! Only 19 pesos, about RM 1.40.

Cool!

Seo Gim ChiB local korean chips@Sour Cream Onion flavour

Chippy nights come once a while, especially when the weather’s cool, or there is wine, or it is a DVD night, or a planless boring lonely night.

Chips bring a sense of comfort and joy to me and I love trying locally produced chips with unique flavours from the various countries I visited. You’d be surprised how much a pack of chips can tell about the style and characters of locals.

The chips are in thinly crinkled cut forms, very light, very crunchy. Although they may not seem impressive, the sour cream flavour was very strong, especially the aftertaste on the mouth. They were not oily either hence make binging on them rather easy on the tummy.

Yummy chips! For only 1600 won.
