Grab'Em Snacks Gourmet Plantain {Review}

If I were to be left on a deserted island with access to water and two food items for the rest of my life I would choose plantains and mangos.  I have attempted to explain to my husband that plantains are the {perfect} food.  You can bake them, you can fry them, you can use them when they are ripe or green and the flavor will be completely different!  Yup...I {LOVE} plantains.  So it would be really unfair for me to tell you  how much I like the plantain chips from Grab'Em Snacks...I mean I am biased and have been known to call plantains (along with chocoloate) Gods perfect foods.  So, I asked Grab'Em Snacks if they would send along an assortment for me to review at my hubby's birthday fiesta...I knew we would have people from different backgrounds at the party and knowing the invited guest...they would be opinionated :)

When Grab'Em Snacks learned that the fiesta would be to help gather toys for Mami on a McMission...they said, Si!


We were provided a box of each of the 7 flavors of the gourmet plantain chips which included Sea Salt Goodness, Fire-Me-Up Red Chili, Perfectly Peppered Black Pepper, Chili Garlicious, Ragin' Cajun, Jalapeño Heat and Cinful Cinnamon.

Overall, the plantain chips were a huge success with my favorite being Sea Salt Goodness, Savvy's favorite being Cinful Cinnamon (YUP! They are DAIRY FREE and thus Savvy safe!) but the big debate was over Jalapeño Heat.  This was the flavor that divided our guests..this was a love it or a leave it flavor but it all came down to the spicy flavor .. some of my guest LOVE spicy foods and thus this was their {favorite} while others thought it was too spicy.

Without a doubt though the consensus was that these are fabulous snack for a fiesta or any other time and my guests would certainly purchase them....and if you want to try them out yourself simply visit Grab'Em Snacks!
