I’m a snacker. After getting diagnosed with celiac, my love for snacking grew to the next level. I believe this is because I bring my own food pretty much everywhere I go and at any given time you can find snacks in my purse, my car, my husband’s car, etc.! So needless to say I’m always on the lookout for new products that not only are easy to pack, but most importantly taste good!
Chips are my weakness. I love the crunchiness and saltiness of them, but don’t like all the unhealthy additives that are often in chips. With that being said, I was beyond excited when I discovered Artisan Tropic. Their products include cassava and plantain strips that come in a variety of flavors. I was thrilled to learn that all of their strips contain only 3 ingredients or less! They have the same crunch as chips, without all the artificial ingredients.
Artisan Tropic is a family business based out of North Carolina, originally from Bogotá, Colombia (South America), that’s passionate about healthy eating. Their daughter struggled with health issues and it wasn’t until after she drastically changed her diet she began to heal her body. From that experience they learned the importance of whole food nutrition and decided to create their own brand of healthy snacks.

- Cassava, also known as a Manioc or Yuca, is a tuber originating in South America.
- The cassava starch pellets are known as tapioca.
- Cassava is a Nightshade Free Vegetable. This means that unlike white potatoes, Cassava will not cause inflammation!
What is a Plantain?
- Plantains are members of the banana family, but are more dense and less sweet.
- Plantains must be cooked but can be prepared at any stage of ripeness.

I sampled each of the flavors and enjoyed them all, but my personal favorite were the plantain strips in the chilli pepper flavor. The chilli flavor was subtle enough where it didn’t burn my mouth, but just had enough kick to them! These would make the perfect addition to guacamole or a mango salsa!
