Whether you call them chips or crisps, there’s one thing we can agree on—the salty snack game is way stronger in other countries than it is here in the United States. Fortunately, thanks to the magic of international shipping and online shopping, you can have fun foreign flavors like grilled squid, cucumber, or fried crab delivered right to your door.
Here are the eight most unique international chip flavors we’ve found on Amazon.

Walkers Marmite Crisps
Marmite, a savory yeast-based spread that’s popular in the United Kingdom, is an extremely divisive flavor—you’ll either love it or hate it once you try it. Sample it in chip form with Walkers Marmite Crisps, which offers a milder taste of Marmite than the straight up stread.
Lay’s Grilled Squid Potato Chips
Grilled squid on a stick is a popular snack food in Japan, especially during festival time. Lay’s has taken that savory seafood flavor and put it on their Grilled Squid potato chips for a tasty snack. The wavy shape of the thin chips makes eating these even more fun.
Walkers Roast Chicken Crisps
There are a lot more meat-based chips abroad than in the U.S., and Walkers (a popular chip company) makes some of the most unique flavors. Get the Meaty Variety Pack so that you can sample chips seasoned with roast chicken, smoky bacon, and prawn cocktail.
Keogh’s Shamrock and Sour Cream Crisps
Have you ever eaten a shamrock? Luckily, now you can, with Keogh’s Shamrock and Sour Cream Crisps, an Irish import that gets rave reviews. Try pairing them with Guinness Chips, which are available in the U.S.
Lay’s Cucumber Chips
If you’re eating cucumber-flavored potato chips, does that count as two vegetables for the day? These Cucumber Chips from Lay’s have a surprisingly refreshing taste that’s worth a try, no matter if there’s any nutritional value or not.
Koikeya Karamucho’s Spicy Seaweed Potato Chips
Looking for a spicy snack? Koikeya Karamucho’s Spicy Seaweed Potato Chips deliver a hot kick alongside a savory seaweed flavor. And if those aren’t fiery enough for you, try Koikeya’s Chili Sticks, which are even hotter.
Lay’s Fried Crab Chips
What’s better than crab? Fried crab—in chip form. Lay’s Fried Crab Chips captures the seafood flavor perfectly and makes it even better with the salt and crunch from the chip.
Lay’s Salted Egg Flavor
Popular in Thailand, Lay’s Salted Egg flavor chips taste exactly like a hardboiled egg. Whether that justifies eating these chips for breakfast is entirely up to you. (But if you do, try pairing them with these bacon chips that are imported from Colombia.)
