I’ve been enjoying various snack foods while watching the Beijing Olympics, one of which is Dandy’s Onion-Garlic Flavored Chips. They’re similar to the shrimp chips that are served with some Chinese dishes but without the shrimp flavor.
When I was a kid, my mom used to get shrimp chips as a box of colorful, dehydrated, semi-transparent hard pieces. When fried, the pieces get bigger and all puffed up. Dandy’s chips come right out of the bag already puffed.
The onion-garlic flavored chips are available at the Asian grocery store, but in the Asian section of some regular supermarkets I’ve only seen the shrimp flavored ones. The company is based right here in the San Francisco Bay Area, which I did not know. Fancy that, a local company.
