Coming from south India where fresh plantain chips is available almost in every street corner, I had to pick up a bag of these chips when I saw them at Trader Joe’s recently. They didn’t disappoint me at all, in fact they tasted so much better than the plantain chips available in Indian grocery stores. These chips from Peru are roasted in sunflower oil and definitely give the good old potato chips a stiff competition. They tasted fresh, salty, crunchy and yummy.
Each serving, which is about 20 chips has 140 calories. It is minimally processed with a short and simple ingredient list consisting of plantains, sunflower oil and salt. There are no artificial colors and trans fat. A 6oz bag is priced at $1.69 and can be found in the chips and crackers aisle of the store. While these may not be the healthiest snacking option, a handful of these chips definitely satisfies the craving for good plantain chips.
