• Newspaper Article: Number Your Curry, Plan Your Stocking Stuffers
The Port Arthur News, Wednesday, November 1, 2006
   By Darragh Doiron, Culinary Thrill Seeking

Darragh Doiron, The Port Arthur NewsIt's just "plantain" good.

Plantains are cousins to the banana. Chips made from them tend to put one in an exotic frame of mind. Grab Em Snacks puts them smack in the middle of Louisianna ... with flavor. This New Jersey-based company figured flavoring them with Cajun spices ought to work, and it did. I'm a sucker for the red chili, myself. The chips ... also in jalapeno, sea salt and black pepper ... are a welcome addition to lunch boxes. I reckon Elvis would have liked them with his fried peanut butter and banana sandwiches.
