Plantain Chips

Plantain chips are one of the many ways Islanders eat the banana, and the chips make a fantastic snack. My childhood memories of Puerto Rico vacations always included these, and their flavor is light and unique. Grab "Em Snacks Plantain chips are offered in six different flavors: Sea Salt, Cajun Spice, Black Pepper, Jalapeno, Chili Garlic, and Red Chili. The Cajun spice adds a little glow to the flavor, and would go great with a sandwich or with some grilled fish. Speaking of fish, why not try breading one with these crushed chips instead of potato chips?

Gluten free and delicious, these chips can easily replace unhealthful potato and other chips in a lunch bag. (In Puerto Rico they’re served at bars as munchies- no dip required!) If you think plantains may be a little beyond your palate, rest assured that these chips don’t taste exotic, weird, or “out there”. They don’t take the "getting used to" that some foods do, and they’re straight-from-the-bag good.

Try them now: Grab 'Em Plantain Chips
