Japanese snack manufacturers Calbee has had quite a good relationship with superstar seiyuu, Nana Mizuki. Recently they announced that they are releasing a brand new potato chip flavor in her honor, and it is inspired by a curry developed by Nana herself!
Calbee held a contest for fans to win a Nana Mizuki x Calbee T-shirt last October, and the winners got to tour Calbee’s factory and watched how the magic happens. They were then surprised by Nana Mizuki herself, who let the lucky winners taste her own home-made curry, which she developed herself, with the help of popular curry restaurant, Le Le Marj.
She revealed that her curry is based on sweet caramelized onions and has a special twist to it, as she added some cocoa powder, which is perfect since Single Awareness Day/ Valentine’s Day is coming. Her concoction is the basis for the new potato chip’s flavor, which are now available for a limited time until mid-March 2016.
Nana Mizuki is now the new image girl for Calbee’s “Poterichi” potato chips, and she has been quite known as a big fan of eating curry. Last time, Calbee gave away life-size stickers of her for a special promo, which was launched last April.
