Review: Turbana Plantain Chips

I love unique snacks!  I often find  myself getting into a rut with food, so I love when something like Turbana Plantain Chips comes along to spice things up!


Turbana Plantain Chips come in a variety of flavors:

  • Lime
  • Chile Lime
  • Sweet
  • Natural
  • Garlic
  • Chile

The chips are made with fresh plantains and contain 30% less fat than potato chips, no trans fat, zero cholesterol and are gluten-free!  When I first opened the bag of Lime chips up, I was surprised at how thin the chips were.  I think I was expecting them to be as thick as dried or friend banana chips.  All varieties of Turbana Plantain Chips have a crispy, thin texture and wonderful balance of flavor throughout.  My favorite variety is the Natural or Lime, though the others are very tasty, too.

Who is Turbana?  They are one of the largest importers of plantains and one of the leading brands of bananas and exotic bananas in the world.
