Snack Exotic: Turbana Plantain Chips - The Produce Moms

Sure – I’m The Produce Mom & I have a passion for clean, fresh foods… but I’m a human being, too!  I eat desserts.  We order pizza.  I love a good snack. The key to snacking is to do it in moderation & seek out the healthiest options available.   And let’s not forget the most important part… it’s gotta taste good.

My favorite snack right now is Turbana Plantain Chips.  This is a new product to our industry & I must admit – I’m kinda obsessed.  They come in 6 flavors: lightly salted, lime, chile & lime, garlic, chile, and sweet.   I cannot name a favorite.  Yes, they are that good.

I reached out to Turbana & told them about my Plantain Chip infatuation.  We’ve developed quite a partnership & I had the opportunity to work hand-in-hand with Turbana at the Disney Family Fun Day last weekend.  My love for this product grew deeper as I learned about Turbana’s dedication to sustainability & social responsibility.  They proudly farm their products in the country of Colombia, utilizing small, family-owned farms.  Their corporate philosophy is “Do not give people fish, teach them how to fish.”  So what is just a bag of Plantain Chips to me is a new opportunity for a family in Colombia.  It represents fair wages, housing opportunities, well-equipped classrooms and more for their employees & neighbors in Urabá, Colombia.  Another thing that is pretty cool – Turbana’s Coral Gables, Florida headquarters sources many of their college interns from Colombia.   There really is “goodness inside” each & every bag of Turbana Plantain Chips.

I want you to Snack Exotic with me!  You really need to try these plantain chips.  They boast 30% less fat than potato chips, no trans fat, zero cholesterol, no preservatives, no additives, and they are gluten free!  Plus… it’s a Plantain Chip!  That’s exotic, fun, sexy, unique.  I love impressing people with food – these chips make it easy!
