Lay’s spicy lobster potato chips and white peach oolong Pepsi have just arrived at a new store on Court Street in Binghamton.
Those are just two examples of the exotic snacks now on the shelves at Beer Bros, which opened last month.
As the name suggests, beer is the main attraction of this 65 Court Street store – and there’s plenty of it in stock.
But the store received its first shipment of some intriguing variations of several popular snack foods familiar to American consumers on Wednesday.
The store owner said many of the exotic items are popular in the New York City area, but have not been available in Broome County until now. He said he believes Binghamton University students would be delighted to see them available on-site.
The snack line is supplied by Exotic Blvd, a California-based company.
In addition to spicy lobster potato chips, other Lay’s flavors available include grilled pork, ghost peppers, capelin mayonnaise onigiri, and something labeled “BBQ Prik Zab Zeed.” They are made in Thailand.
The white peach oolong Pepsi originates from China, where it was introduced a few months ago.
Beer Bros also offers some special versions of Oreos, Skittles, and Sour Patch Kids.
Before you decide to try any of the snacks, make sure you can afford it. Some of the bags of potato chips that you suspect would cost a few dollars are $9. And this 500ml bottle of Pepsi White Peach Oolong is $25.
