    What happened to these? I haven't seen them in ages. They just disappeared one day from T&T and even the small Asian grocery stores. :'(

    Hm, now that you mention it, I really haven't seen those around either. Cuttlefish flavoured snack...that use to be my favourite!

    Still haven't been able to find these at all.

    Found something similar in taste though. They're called Paldo Crab Chips. Found them at Great Two Supermarket for about $1.

    They were pulled off the market in Canada because the colour additives or fish/animal extract didn't meet CFIA (Canadian Food Inspection Agency) standards.

    They've modified the product (the pink colour is gone, taste is not as good). You can now buy it at H-Mart ($2.49/bag) and Kim's Market ($3.50/2 bags). Kim's Market is a Korean grocery store near Broadway and Fraser. A lot more expensive than it used to be. Remember the days when these imported chips were 69 cents?

    I didn't even realize that they were gone until this thread! I started searching for them and they used to be my fave! The current shrimp crackers aren't good either, it's missing the saltiness =(
