Irvins Salted Egg

This year I’ve been seeing a lot of posts about salted egg chips so I became curious to try it out. I listed it on my agenda when we went to Singapore two months ago but unfortunately I was not able to buy one because of limited time. I was hoping that I can find one in the airport but I was wrong, I did not see any Irvins Salted Egg Potato Chips at Changi Airport.

Last month, I saw a post from a friend about Pre-order of Irvins Salted Egg Products so I immediately messaged her and asked for the price. She gave me the PHP price (shipping not included) but I told her that my husband will just pick-up my order in Singapore so she gave me the SRP, no more profit. :) 

She asked me when is my husband’s flight because she needs to pre-order it, two weeks delivery time. Waah! It is really popular in Singapore that you need to pre-order para hindi maubusan. Good thing that she received the products few days before my husband’s arrival. 

I ordered Irvins Salted Egg Potato Chips SGD16 and Irvins Salted Egg Sauce SGD8. Since I’m not fond of fish skin, I did not order Irvins Salted Egg Fish Skin SGD16. It is available in regular size for SGD8. 



The salted egg potato chips are not cheap. If I will convert it to PH Peso, let say 1SGD = PHP35, one large chip (230g) is P560. That is so expensive for chips so I was really hoping that it is worth the splurge. #DangerouslyAddictive''

Upon arrival of my husband’s in SG, he immediately meets his friend to get my order and I patiently waited for three more days just to hold these goodies. I even posted in IG, “Hindi ko alam kung san ko mas excited sa salted egg potato chips ba o sa pag-uwi ni hubby”. hehehe! 


The pen is just to show the size
My husband and I love salted egg and salted egg shrimp is one of our favorite meal in the house. I brought the Irvins Salted Egg Potato Chips during my son’s Field Trip so this was our companion during traffic. 

Read: Salted Egg Shrimp Recipe

I like the packaging, it is very sealed and the packaging is resealable too. Since it is freshly made, you need to consume it 6 weeks from the production date and within a week after opening it. 



So our verdict, the salted egg potato chips are just ok. It is not dangerously addictive for us. I’m not sure if I just expected too much or I’m not really into chips. The taste is a combination of salty, sweet and a tinge of spiciness. I’m not fond of sweet and spicy foods, so kung chips gusto ko lang salty parang Chippy. Hehehe! My husband finished this pack. 



I used the Irvin’s Salted Egg Sauce in my Salted Egg Chicken. I just cook few tbsp of the salted egg sauce in the pan and add the fried chicken strips. Honestly, I haven't tried this dish yet and this was my first time to cook it.

My husband ate salted egg chicken when he went to Brunei and he liked it so I asked him how's my salted egg chicken. He said, magkalasa daw so he loved my dish (same taste). So if you want salted egg chicken, just buy the Irvins salted egg sauce and you will have a perfect dish. hahaha!



If you will ask me if I liked it, I will just say “ok lang”, kalasa (same taste) din kasi ng salted egg potato chips. Hehehe! And because my husband loves my salted egg chicken, I'm cooking this again today just for him. :)

  1. I'm not that aware with Irvin's but I saw it one time here in the office. My pregnant officemante is craving for it. HAHA! We actually have the same opinion about it. I expected it to be salty. I didn't know that it costs that much. I rather have my pringles haha!

  2. Is this the age of the salted egg? I'm seeing salted egg everything from salted egg chips to salted egg chicken. And now there's a salted egg sauce?! Too bad it was just okay (funny that you compared it to Chippy!) but I'm still curious. I'll ask my SG friends to get me some!

  5. Quite expensive for chips. We are not much into chips so I would give this one a pass. The salted egg sauce though looks interesting.

    1. Yes, so expensive for chips. My husband likes the egg sauce, timplado na you just need to add your choice of meat or pwede din dip.

  6. The Mommies in my mommy group are raving about Irvin's Salted Egg Chips! I'm curious about it, too. But given that it's quite pricey, parang hindi sya yung tipong kaka-adikan ko kasi baka mabutas ang bulsa ko! Haha

    1. Yes, it is pricey. SGD16 is the SRP but here in the Philippines, they are selling for P750+. Kaya nakakabutas talaga ng bulsa if gusto mo siya. hehehe!
