We’ll kick off this truffle mania with a fairly-new homegrown brand ─ Aroma Truffle & Co. Marketed as the World’s Strongest Truffle Chips, their offerings definitely leave the average bag of chips in the dust.
Their Black Summer Truffle Potato Chips feature black summer truffles that are carefully selected and harvested in Spoleto, an ancient city in Umbria, Italy famed for its truffles. They’re air-flown to Singapore to be made into Aroma’s ambrosial chips within a week of harvest. Dredged with truffle bits, each hand-cooked crisp is imbued with an intense earthy flavour.
Other star flavours in the line include the Original, where crinkle-cut crisps are tossed in fine olive oils and black truffle, as well as the Parmesan Cheese, for the perfect blend of black truffles, dill and Parmesan cheese.

As its name suggests, Luke’s Organic promises USDA-Certified Organic products that are non-GMO. Their rendition of truffle chips features wild Italian Urbani white truffles instead of the regular black truffles that are commonly used. These pale white gems are rarer and more delicate in flavour as compared to black truffles.
Going at $6.90 per pack, the White Truffle & Sea Salt Potato Chips are lightly dusted with grey fleur du sel salt that’s harvested by hand. It’s one of the finest salts in the world, whose delicate flavour brings out the taste of the white truffles.

It’s no secret that Tyrrell devotes their efforts to making quality English crips. What makes Tyrrell’s chips stand out is the fact that they leave the skin of the potato on in their belief that it contains the bulk of a potato’s hearty flavour.
Their Black Truffle & Sea Salt ($5.95) creation comprises crunchy thick-cut crisps with a fragrant undertone of black truffle. Be sure to give the bag a good shake to redistribute the sea salt at the bottom of the bag!

8. Oolala Potato Chips

Here’s another brand that does thick-cut chips with truffles. Oolala has two variations of truffle chips ─ Black Truffle & Olive Oil, as well as White Truffle & Parmesan.
Opt for the classic Black Truffle & Olive Oil for a blast of truffle flavour. Lightly infused with herbs and spices, you can expect these chips to be aromatic and well-seasoned. Alternatively, go for the White Truffle & Parmesan, which has a more delicate and mellow taste as opposed to the pungent earthiness of black truffle. The flavour is also heightened with Parmesan.
