A healthy alternative to Potato chips. Well, maybe not entirely, since Potato chips are usually salty and Jackfruit chips are sweet ^^”
Jackfruit trees are commonly cultivated in southeast Asia
The unripe flesh of a Jackfruit is pale in appearance and has an off-white colour. It can only be eaten when cooked and has a poultry-like texture, therefore making it an excellent vegetarian meat substitute.
When the fruit ripens, the flesh becomes bright yellow in colour and can be eaten uncooked. It is naturally sweet, making it a commonly used ingredient in desserts.
In this case, the fruit flesh has been dried to make Jackfruit chips. (^-^)
The chips are very crispy, sweet, and has a slight sticky texture when thoroughly chewed. There isn’t much smell to the chips, eventhough it looks like Durian, but that certainly doesn’t compromise its gorgeous taste.
One packet contains 100g of Jackfruit chips, and the cost is between NZ$2.50 – S3.50
Good news! Jackfruit chips can be found in all Asian supermarkets.
Overall Mark: 4.7/5
