E-Aji Dip Snax snack foods

Cathy, Nathan, and I are going crazy over this new snack food from San Miguel called E-Aji.

My mom and I discovered the E-Aji Dip Snax brand of snack chips that come with delicious Magnolia dips at Cash N’ Carry and bought some to bring home to Cathy and Nathan. There are seven E-Aji DipSnax variants: Fries with Extremely Cheesy Garlic Dip, Fries with Totally Sweet chili Dip, Nachos with Fiesta Salsa Dip, Nachos with Extremely Cheesy Garlic Dip, Nachos with Groovy Mayo BBQ Dip, Ridges with Cheddar Cheese Dip, and Ridges with Totally Sweet Chili Dip.

It’s SOOO much better than WalaStix, the Regent-created dip snack whose dip, unfortunately, is watered down and relatively tasteless. According to San Miguel Corporation, the Philippine juggernaut that manufactures E-Aji Dip Snax, E-Aji doesn’t contain any MSG.

We liked the E-Aji Dip Snax fries with cheese dip, then the E-Aji Dip Snax fries with sweet chili. The E-Aji Dip Snax ridges were good too, but not as good as the fries, and the E-Aji Dip Snax nachos… meh.

At P15, definitely worth your money. Unfortunately for me, I’m restarting my diet today, so I’ll allow myself maybe one pack a week, and that’s it. But don’t let my diet stop you from trying this totally delicious snack. Mmmmmm.

  10. Hi Jihan! Aji is Japanese for ‘taste,’ so I assume E-Aji has something to do with taste. Maybe it’s literally “e-taste,” and because it’s meant for a Filipinos, who like switching syllables (e.g. Pinoy becomes NoyPi, or gutom becomes tomguts) it’s actually “taste-e” and therefore meaning “tasty.”

    How’s that for an interpretation?πŸ˜€

  11. It actually means better tasting. It’s to directly compete with Oishi which means good tasting. So since E-aji tastes better, it’s named that way. =)

  12. Wow, thanks for that information! Where’d you get it?

  13. The best! I love all the cheese dips and Nachos with salsa!

  14. E-Aji means “good taste” in nihongo. “ii” as in good in japanese & aji means “taste” in jap. They probably just changed “ii” to “E”, so that it would look better that way dont you think ?πŸ™‚

    Anyway, the same AJI goes for aji no moto. It means the essence or source (moto) of (no) taste (aji). Aji no moto = essence or souce of taste.

    another brand with AJI on it, AJI ICHIBAN = Number One (ichi ban) Aji (Taste).

    Anyway, I like the Nacho with salsa the best =)

  15. the words “ii aji” are actually written on the packaging, in katakana. above where it says “e-aji”.

  16. BTW, the nachos and mayo dip has a whopping 320 cal. Just sayin… hehe

  17. The best about this is it delcares ” No MSG ” , i hope its really true. Some folks believe MSG is bad for the health.

  18. Is e aji dip snack available?
