I bought a package of Trader Joe’s Roasted Plantain Chips as part of my travel snack kit for a trip a couple of months ago. I was trying to pick healthier items. I rationalized the health benefits as:
Plantain = fruit
Baked = not fried
Chips = CHIPS!!
(Two out of three isn’t bad.)
Unfortunately, though, the little bag didn’t fit in my suitcase, so it sat in my kitchen, unopened. Until this week.
I hesitated trying the chips for so long because I was afraid that they might be a little sugary. They might hold a hint of sweetness, and I’m a salt fiend.
I finally decided to open them, and to my salt-loving surprise, they are delicious! Almost too much so. No hint of sugar. The small bag can be easily snarfed in a sitting, so the chips do require a modicum of restraint.
And here they are, this week’s Friday recommendation.
We have Trader Joe’s to thank for that. Thanks, TJ’s
