The Nintendo food collaborations just keep on coming. Kicking off last week on Friday, September 1 and running until Wednesday, January 31, 2024, the Yamazaki Biscuit Company is teaming up with Nintendo to offer Mario themed art on their chip brand, Chip Star. A total of twelve different designs are available in both large and small sized chips. The flavors on offer with Mario characters are as follows:

Chip Star potato chips come in a tube like packaging similar to Pringles. The chips are housed in plastic and the tube itself is completely recyclable.  The small packs cost roughly ¥150 (around $1.02 USD) while the large packs cost around ¥300 ($2.04 USD). These can be picked up at convenience stores, super markets and drug stores all around the country.

Two Chip Star x Super Mario Bros. special items will be available to those that purchase chips during the campaign period. 2,500 lucky winners will be able to receive either a “Big Star Cushion Set (A Grade)” or an original shoulder bag (B Grade).
