Taste test: These plantain chips were cut at a variety of angles, so pieces ranged from nearly round to very oblong. They had a nice range of golden colors, with some dark seasoning visible in some places if you looked carefully.
I crunched in to find a strong crunch, not that crisp in most cases, but a little snappier on pieces that were thinner. I could taste some gentle Indian spices that added a nice flavor that went well with the taste of the plantain, though without really adding the heat that was promised on the bag. A different take on plantain chips, nice and tasty.

Smell test: Mild spices, but strong enough that they overpowered the plaintain smell.
