Product review: Bossman Food plantain chips

Plantain chips seem to be popular these days in Sydney. That’s exciting news for us, because we miss our chifles. The Indian banana chips we’ve bought a few times are good, but I found better ones in Fiji Market recently.

Bossman Food chips are not cheap, but the price reflects the packaging and product quality. These plantain chips are made in the US (imported by a company in VIC) and come in five varieties: sea salt, Cajun, cinnamon, Jamaican chilli, and chilli garlic. I felt compelled to bring home one of each (except sea salt) to try them with the family.

Our tasting notes:

  • Chilli garlic
    Ingredients: plantains, expeller-pressed high oleic safflour oil, sea salt, organic (garlic & red chilli).
    Our favourite of the lot. Very garlicky, in a good way.

  • Cajun
    Ingredients: plantains, expeller-pressed high oleic safflour oil, sea salt, organic cajun spice (cayenne pepper, paprika, red chilli, onion, cumin, black pepper, coriander, garlic, thyme, basil, oregano, white pepper, bay leaves, rosemary, celery seeds, allspice).
    Very complex in flavours, nice, but a bit too-much-going-on for my taste.

  • Jamaican chilli
    Ingredients: plantains, expeller-pressed high oleic safflour oil, sea salt and organic red chilli.
    Hot! I liked these better than the Cajun, Al found them impossible to eat (he doesn’t like spicy food – weird Peruvian, I know).

  • Cinnamon
    Ingredients: plantains, expeller-pressed high oleic safflour oil, sea salt, organic cinnamon sugar (cane sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and cardamom).
    Very nice! Sweet, crunchy, much much better taste and texture than regular sweet banana chips.
