We were recently reminded of a fruit that is delightfully prepared on many tropical islands. While visiting Haiti for the first time exploring the country’s taste bud, we discovered one of their favorite snack foods.
This fruit is a great source of potassium, fiber, and is known to boost the immune system. In the West Indies, plantains are prepared fried/ boiled ripe, green, semi-green, crushed or whole. In any combination, the savory bites are addicting.
Haitians redefine natural snacking on the go with this hearty fruit provision. Plantains are grown in galore and are prepared with many flavors in homes, sold in shops, crushed and fried at markets, and eaten on buses, cars, trucks, and motorcycles. It’s named bannann fri in Haiti, it’s called other names depending on the island, ingredients or preparation technique. Haiti exemplifies the meaning of snacking on the go. Plantain Chip will be available on the islsnac menu. Try it! “and snack on the go!”. To discover more delicious on the go Caribbean snacks click here.
