Good news to all potato chips lover here in Manila! Japan’s bestselling snack brand Calbee is now here in the Philippines. Together with its local partner, Universal Robina Corporation (URC), they are bringing us a range of potato snack products called Jack ‘n Jill Calbee.

On March 13, I personally witnessed the unveiling of the first ever Jack ‘n Jill Calbee pop-up store at the Glorietta Activity Center in Makati City.
The Jack ‘n Jill Calbee Grand Launch was hosted Gelli Victor and was well-attended by the executives of Calbee Inc. and URC’s top brass Lance Gokongwei.
The guests of the event were given a first taste of the different products and flavors Jack ‘n Jill Calbee potato snacks.
Indulge in the #BestoPotato
Made from real potatoes, Jack ‘n Jill Calbee Potato Chips has 3 delectable flavors to choose from: Classic Salted, Cheddar and Sour Cream, and Wasabi variants. They are available in 28g and 170g packs.
My personal favorite is the Cheddar & Sour Cream flavored potato chips…
Jack ‘n Jill Calbee also has the Pizza Potato that comes in 28g and 65g packs. This snack captures the taste of real pizza because of the melted cheese on top.
