Food Review: Gourmet Picks Potato Chips by Oishi

Let me begin this post by asking a question, what is a Junk Food?

As defined by, Junk food is a pejorative term for cheap food containing high levels of calories fromsugar or fat with little fiberproteinvitamins or minerals.

Despite being labeled as "junk," such foods usually do not pose any immediate health concerns and are generally safe when integrated into a well balanced diet.

Potato chips basically categorized as Junk Food.  And one of the big brands now in the Philippines offering a wide array of potato chips choices at very affordable prices and with flavors that would get you hooked with their junkies, is OISHI.

From the two variants of Gourmet Picks from Oishi, the WASABI & NORI flavor is my favorite, mainly because I love wasabi and the flavor is very detectable in this variant, even with one bite.  The flavor is well-blended and the amount of spiciness is sufficient.  Perfect flavor for the wasabi-fanatic individuals.

The pale yellow potato chips with green specks of herb is the WASABI & NORI flavor.  
My rating is 9 of 10.

 I personally love kimchi, but Gourmet Picks' KIMCHI flavor does not have a good rendition of the well-loved side dish of the Koreans.  It lacked the spiciness and that "fermented" taste of the real kimchi. My rating for this flavor is 5 of 10.

Brownie Ala Mode  My rating: 8 of 10

Blue Berry Crumble Cupcake My rating: 6 of 10

Frost Coffee Mocha My rating: 7 of 10

My overall rating: food + ambiance + service + value for money = 6.5 of 10. 
The sweets are okey (meaning, they tasted "just right" / "so-so")  but the ambiance is not as comfy compared to those typical cafes.
