Durian Chips

We got a big package of stuff from Thailand, brought to us by a good friend from work, and the largest of the packages was this container of durian chips. Huge. Durian chips are similar to potato chips, they are made from mature durian, sliced very thinly, then fried in fresh vegetable oil until golden brown. For longer storage life, they are roasted in a hot air dry to remove some of the moisture.

My beautiful Bride loves these, and ate a bunch as soon as she opened them. They don't have a strong smell of durian, and, while they do taste like durian, it also is not a strong flavour, and I find that I like them too. I would think that they are better for you than potato chips.
