One of the snacks that Japan loves, “potato chips.”
There are so many kinds of potato chips in Japan that I could write an article about, but this time, I want to talk about how to eat them.
When you eat potato chips, you might be doing something like watching TV, reading manga or magazine.
The problem is that your hand gets greasy.
Most of the times when I eat snacks, I am over-time working at my office.
I often eat potato chips but I really felt inconvenience because I have to clean my greasy hand each time when I touch keyboard and mouse.
The good thing is now someone told me an idea to eat chips without grease hand.
Please watch the video below.
That’s right, eat with chopsticks!
Since you can eat chips without greasing your hand, it’s a perfect way while you are using computer!
According to the person who told me the idea, it’s a typical way to eat chips among programmers who use computers for a long time.
Most of the people (non-programmers) I talked about this idea told me “I’ve never heard of such way” or “I didn’t know that”, so I think it’s not a major way to eat chips.
What about in your countries?
I think you can easily get Japanese chopsticks but are there people eat like this?
But there is an opinion from Japanese like this.
“I agree that you don’t get greasy in this way but I don’t want to eat potato chips with chopsticks, because isn’t it more fun to eat chips by grabbing with your hand? I don’t feel like eating chips with chopsticks.”
Well, it has a point too (^_^)
This is JAPAN Style!
You should follow me on Twitter.
I’ve already done it for ~10 years. I first started using chopsticks to eat chips and those curved small cheese things to learn how to use the sticks, but then I noticed that my keyboard and mouse stayed cleaner while playing or or working.
Thank you for your comment. It’s interesting! I have never thought about someone uses chopsticks to eat chips to practice chopsticks (^_^) because we usually practice with rice or side dishes.
Cool idea! You should submit the article to this month’s Japan Blog Matsuri… http://nihongoup.com/blog/may-2010-japan-blog-matsuri/
BTW, love your Cheburashka on the table 😉

Something new to try on while I get my next bag of chips to munch.

xD was encountering this problem today while on the computer and thought of using chopsticks, then i wondered if it was common and i stumbled across this.
> anime999: It’s great that you came up with the same idea! It works! And may become common in the future!?
