Kangkong King sells crunchy, addictive kangkong chips in barbecue, cheese, and sour cream flavors

If the craving for crunch (but not the calories) calls, crunchy kangkong chips may be your next best snacking bet.

You may have already tried the crispy fried appetizer at home or at your favorite Filipino restaurant, but for convenience’s sake, check out local business Kangkong King – ready to literally deliver their take on the local snack right on your doorstep.

Kangkong King uses 100% water spinach leaves (rich in Vitamin A and C), dips them in a special breading, fries each leaf until super crunchy, and then lightly coats them with your flavoring powder of choice. In a few minutes, you get a low-calorie, low-fat addictive snack that’s big on texture and balanced in flavor.

They have 5 kid-friendly flavors available: KKK (a mild, savory flavor); Plain (neutral enough to use as chips with any dip); Barbecue, Sour Cream, and Cheese. Their vegan-friendly KKK and Plain flavors are dairy-free and gluten-free.

You can buy their mall kiosk servings in 4 sizes: tarsier (regular) at P50, chimpanzee (medium) at P75, orangutan (large) at P100, and ape (extra large) at P120. Feel free to choose between heavy, regular, or light flavoring.

Note: Don’t worry about the sogginess of Kangkong King’s chips. In my experience, the chips arrived at its crunchiness prime. When eaten again after 5 hours, the crunch still remained.

You can also get the kangkong chips in resealable bags, good for up to 3 months. They cost P80 per 50-gram bag.

All flavors were easily likable (even the plain and original), making it impossible to try just one chip, but very possible to finish one bag on your own!

Kangkong King’s mall kiosks are located in Robinsons Place Manila, Robinsons Galleria, and SM North EDSA and Fairview.

Kangkong King takes nationwide delivery orders from 10 am to 5 pm daily via their website. – Rappler.com
