These Trader Joe’s plantain chips are just one of a handful of TJs plantain chips varieties. There are the plantain crisps, which are super salty and crunchy. The original or jerk Trader Joe’s plantain chips which are a tad chewier and not sweet but more salty. Then there are these TJ’s sweet chips. These are super crunchy and have more of a sweetness to them than any of the other similar chips at TJ’s. They have apparently been left to ripen longer for the naturally occurring sugar to come out, so even without any added sugar they have a definite sweetness to them. And there really isn’t a saltiness to them like traditional Trader Joe’s potato chips might have………….

Trader Joe’s Sweet Plantain Chips
TJ’s adds the sweet in front of the name on these to differentiate them from the ones that come in the slim, narrow bag that tend toward the salty side. The great thing about these chips is that they have a really strong texture and crunch that makes it seem like you’re eating a super unhealthy potato chip.
What is everyone’s favorite version of TJs plantain chips? I really like the jerk chips version if I feel like a salty snack. And the plantain crisps are also a really delicious greasy and salty treat. These ones fall somewhere in the Bermuda triangle of plantain chips at TJ’s. Of course there is always new and random chips of every variety at Trader Joe’s. I’ll be curious to hear everyone’s all time favorite chip at TJ’s and whether or not it’s still around or if it was a one season wonder!…..
