I have long been a fan of the chocolate covered potato chips produced by Japanese chocolate manufacturer Royce'. I don't often have it, because the calorie count is too immense to be consuming them on a regular basis. I consider it more as a treat, to be had on special occasions, or during emotional emergencies (usually brought on by PMS). They are a bit pricey too, and I have to go out of my way to buy them in Manila as they are only available in Royce' stalls.
When I found out that Lay's would be launching their own version of the product while I was in the States, I thought that this meeting between us was meant to be. How opportune that I would be close by when this concoction was introduced to the public.
My sister had informed me via email that this product would be available in Target, so I checked the chips section whenever I went there. I never chanced upon some, so I believed that they had not yet been launched. Yesterday though, during some last minute Christmas shopping, Liz spotted one in one of the aisles and showed it to me. I was very happy to know this was not an urban legend but an actual pack I could hold in my hand.
