A Unique Combination: Potato Chips and Chocolate

Sometimes, strange combinations can be a real delight.

That is definitely the case with potato chips and chocolate—and this salty and sweet combo works for a number of reasons!

The Right Combo

What’s going on with this uncanny combination, anyway? At ROYCE’, for our Potatochip Chocolate selections, we have regular ridged potato chips that are dipped and covered with chocolate. Simply enough, the crisp and salty flavor of the chip works brilliantly with the richly sweet flavor of chocolate.

Plain or regular potato chips are the best to use because of their simple yet savory taste. That way, it won’t clash too much with the flavor of the sweet chocolate.

Potato chips with ridges are also ideal to cover in chocolate because they’re more sturdy and can handle the chocolate mix without collapsing on its own weight. The chocolate also builds up between the ridges, which increases the delicious sweet flavor.

Milk chocolate is typically used because it blends perfectly with the salty crunch of a potato chip, like our classic Potatochip Chocolate “Original”. But at ROYCE’ Chocolate, we also have renditions in dark and white chocolates, namely the Potatochip Chocolate "Mild Bitter" and Potatochip Chocolate "Fromage Blanc".

Our Potatochip Chocolates have a glossy texture and appearance, thanks to a careful process of tempering and integrating melted chocolate over freshly made potato chips. That’s just one of the ways How Japan Does Chocolate.

Chocolate-covered potato chips is not the kind of combination that might easily come to your mind when you want some great treats, but once you’ve tried one, you’ll be hooked!

Experience the unconventionally wonderful taste of our Potatochip Chocolates at a ROYCE' Chocolate boutique. We also ship across the US through our official e-commerce site, roycechocolate.com.
