Product Description

Slices of plantain hand cooked in sunflower oil and sprinkled with a sweet chilli and lime seasoning.

These crisps are made for us by a small family run business in the heart of Staffordshire using fresh, unpeeled plantains sourced from Ecuador in South America. The plantain is a close relative to the banana, and although a fruit, is actually used in its native country as a vegetable, forming part of their staple diet similat to that of the potato in the UK. The heat of the spicy Spanish chillies and sharpness of the limes blend perfectly with these hand cooked plantains resulting in a great tasting product.

Why spoil a perfectly good fruit like this?

Overly flavoured, spiced and seasoned! Ripe plantain chips are delicious and need no more than a little oil for frying and a little salt for seasoning. They shouldn't taste anything like Kettle chips!

Whole family liked these

Slight kick of chilli but just enough to keep you returning. Very reminiscent of childhood treats in another land. Tasty, crisp and not too oily, though could be less greasy for perfection.

Really good taste and texture, tastes a bit like kettle chips. Tiny bit on the expensive side considering the size of the bag, but would definitely buy again. Really tasty!

nice and rich

Nice to find plantain chips. To me they are very heavy on the seasoning which mean s you can't really taste the natural sweetness of the plantain. They are rich and not too spicy. I would buy them as a treat.
