We have ourselves a spicy snack review. This is a first for us though since we never did any plantain reviews. If you are not familar with plantains, they are like bananas, but even if they resemble bananas in the look inside and out they taste much like a potato chip when fried. There are other uses of the plantain, but we are not here to discuss those other options. I have had these style of plantain chips since I was a little tyke. A little salt goes a long way for my tastes. Our review team have been given 2 styles, this chili one and a chili lime variety. We will review the chili lime one next week. I do not think eith of these chips are considered to be too spicy, but we hope the flavor is well worth the purchase because plantains are considered a much healthy alternative snack food to those that often capture our attention.
Made from freshly harvested plantains, and available in six natural flavors, Turbana Plantain Chips are a great alternative to potato chips and other snacks because of the following:
No Preservatives. No Additives. No Trans Fats. No Gluten. No Cholesterol and 30% less fat than potato chips and all natural. Our review team for these alternative chip review are Mike & Jen, Matt Bauhaus, and Jerret Ulmer. Before we get to the reviews here is a little background about Turbana…
