Delicious Korean Inspired Honey Butter Potato Chips

Posted by jakeharris - May 14th, 2015

It seems that the potato chip industry is really getting creative with their flavors lately, and there is nothing more interesting than what a Korean restaurant located in the East Village is making now. Their version of the potato chip is now something that Lay’s should be worried about as they make a side entree for $5 that includes “honey butter chips” which is all the rage in the area.

According to an article found on reddit and written by Grubstreet.com, the idea for the chips comes from the chefs who work at “Oiji” got the inspiration for the snack from their native home country of South Korea. These two chefs, who are named Brian Kim and Tae Kyung Ku are selling the chips like wildfire and made over $20 million dollars in just two months of sales.

They even went so far as to sell some of the bags on eBay, because there is basically no chance that you will be able to get them otherwise in New York. The chefs are making this duplicate of the snack and it will hopefully be able to take off very soon. Tostoadv reported that it will be neat to see what other kinds of chips and snacks will be coming out this year as the American market clearly seeks for new things to munch on all the time. Some of the more exotic flavors are going to compete heavily with the old classics.
