HONEY BUTTER CHIPS! Where To Buy The Popular Snacks In Singapore? Find Out Here! (with new updates)



We cannot get a piece of swoon-worthy Korean hottie Song Joong-ki (Descendents Of The Sun) except through our smartphone/laptop/TV screen, but here's the consolation….. we can still get a bite of those immensely pleasing Korean HONEY BUTTER CHIPS goodness in Singapore.

Intense in buttery flavor with a distinct note of honey, the formidable pairing of sweet and savory has captured the affections of numerous tastebuds. PinkyPiggu included! Lol!

Though Calbee launched the chips in Japan in 2012, it did not take off in terms of popularity until the collaboration with Haitai saw its debut in Korea 2 years later, creating a honey butter craze that swept across Korea and beyond.

Extremely well-received, it is said that even getting the Haitai-Calbee Honey Butter Chips in Korea itself can be quite a challenge. How do we get a taste of it in Singapore then?

Getting friends traveling to Korea to try their luck in bringing a few packs back? Or paying exhorbitant prices to certain online stores? The best thing would be to direct purchase it off the shelves of course.

Here's sharing where I managed to find Honey Butter Chips in Singapore, both the original version as well as similar products offered by competitor brands. If you know where else to get it too, or know of any other honey butter snacks that's worth try, do please let us know by leaving a comment below :D

Kettle Chips Honey Butter
Price: S$2.20 (56g per pack)

Shine Korea Supermarket | Website | Facebook | Bras Basah Complex #01-29 | Burlington Square #01-10/11 | Clifford Centre #01-10 | Far East Plaza #01-15 | Kallang Leisure Park #02-31/32 | Aperia #02-12 | Pomo #01-19 & #01-K9 | Marina Square #02-218A | 156 Rochor Road

Our favorite Kettle Chips in honey butter flavor?!! It's like a dream came true, but alas the flavor isn't as pleasing as the other brands. Texture of the chips is fabulous as always though.

Haitai-Calbee Honey Butter Potato Chips
Price: S$4.70 (60g per pack)

Lee Mart | Chinatown Point #01-37

Unintentionally discovered this shop in Chinatown Point that carries the original Korean version of Honey Butter Chips when I was on way to Chir Chir to check out their newly-launched Honey Butter Fried Chicken! Talk about divine co-ordination! Wow!

The bag opened up to such a wondrous buttery aroma! Love the thin and crispy chips that hold so much flavors in each bite. This is dangerously addictive! No wonder fans get all crazy about it, with even some Korean celebrities posing with the chips in selfies and posting the photos online.


Haitai Honey Tong Tong
Price: S$2.60 (60g per pack)

Shine Korea Supermarket | Website | Facebook | Bras Basah Complex #01-29 | Burlington Square #01-10/11 | Clifford Centre #01-10 | Far East Plaza #01-15 | Kallang Leisure Park #02-31/32 | Aperia #02-12 | Pomo #01-19 & #01-K9 | Marina Square #02-218A | 156 Rochor Road

From the same Haitai company that produce the original honey butter chips. Honey Tong Tong features the same sweet-savory seasoning but is paired with puffy triangular-shape crisps instead, providing a different mouthfeel of enjoyment.


Calbee Honey Butter Chips
Price: S$5 for 3 packs (60g per pack)

Choco Express | Website | Ang Mo Kio Hub #01-09/10 | Harbourfront Centre #01-08 | Jurong Point #03-K1/K2 | One Raffles Place Podium #B1-15 | Parkway Parade #B1-35/36 | Sports Hub #01-68 | One Knowledge Mall #B1-13

This Japanese version is strikingly similar in terms of flavors and textures to its Korean counterpart, most probably because it's all manufactured under Calbee. Equally enjoyable at a lower price. W.I.N!


Lay's Honey Butter Crisp
Price: S$1.50 (50g per pack )

Hong Giap Credit | Golden Mile Complex #01-43

Recently launched and readily available in convenient stores and supermarkets when a friend visited Bangkok last week. So I went to Singapore "Little Thailand", Golden Mile Complex half expecting to find the chips at the Thai Supermarket on level 2. No they do not carry it but I found mine at a shop on level 1 (next to the escalator) instead.

The chips has a stronger honey than buttery taste, with ridged texture for those who like a thicker bite. Nice!
