Tropical Gourmet Plantain Chips Spicy

Taste test: These plantain chips had a mildly diagonal cut, so the chips were not huge but not round either, but generally just a bit oblong. The chips had a golden orange color, with some flavor powder visible.

When I crunched in, I got pretty much the usual plantain chips flavor, with just the slightest additional spices, if any. However, in the aftertaste, an unexpected heat really kicked in, and I could feel a strong burn in the back of my throat. Beyond the taste of the chips, I really liked the colorful creatures depicted on the bag, which included a toucan, a parrot, a hummingbird, a turtle and a tiger.

Smell test: Mostly the usual plantain chips smell, but I could detect a hint of sweet banana too.

From the package: “Grown in the tropical areas of Ecuador, South America, Tropical Gourmet's® premium selected plantains are carefully harvested by hand, sliced and delicately golden-crisped to create a delicious, nutritious tropical vegetable chip, rich in potassium, with no cholesterol, artificial colors or flavors, or added preservatives.”
