Want to know more about our Lightly Salted Plantain Crisps? Read on!
We harvest when it is ripe – the way mother nature intended. What we get from that is a product that is naturally packed with flavour. Due to the plantains being ripe it makes it harder to work with but it is the best and only way to eat plantains. Ours have only three ingredients – sunflower oil, salt and chilli. They do not need much else!
Competitors use green plantains, which are easier to work with however they are starchy and flavourless. Due to this they use lots of artificial flavours to make it taste good.
Flavour is a huge part of the Nigerian culture and Chika had to ensure the snacks reflected this. The flavour combinations should delight the senses and that is the way Nigerians intend when they mix flavours.
It was important for the flavours to be African and strike a balance for them to be mainstream so that everyone could access the joy the Chika’s range of snacks are intended to bring.
