You’re Free as a Bird to Snack Smart Thanksgiving Day with All-Natural Tostones

You’re Free as a Bird to Snack Smart Thanksgiving Day with All-Natural Prime Planet Tostones

Let’s be real, Thanksgiving turkey isn’t always that great. We’ve all been forced to choke down a dry piece of breast meat, murmuring to the chef, “This is delicious… ” Despite this looming “peril,” turkey is king on America’s largest food consumption day, right next to towering servings of dinner rolls, mashed potatoes, and carbs, carbs, and more carbs…

But is anyone saying “bring on the Tostones?” Well, maybe not at the dinner table…yet – though Prime Planet’s all-natural green plantain chips are way better for you – but they do rank high on the coffee table. With three televised NFL games scheduled on Nov. 25, our popular Tostones snack chips are ready-made for dipping on the big day. 

Health-Smart Snacking

Here’s something else that’s good to know: you can actually better your chances of having a relatively normal, healthy day of eating on Thanksgiving – if you engage in intermittent snacking throughout day – because you’re less likely to behave as if you’ve never seen food before when you finally sit down for the main meal. The key word is “smart,” but let’s add in “fast and easy” when serving Prime Planet green plantain chips with your favorite dip or salsa, or as part of a snack board or charcuterie board – a perfect way to nibble the long day away.

Health-Smart Snacking

Studies show that natural plant-based snack chips have been trending with consumers, not just because people are now open to alternatives to the traditional snack foods, but also because they really are a better-for-you choice.

“Wherever consumers reach for a snack, they’re increasingly seeking healthier, plant-based snacks, such as Prime Planet’s all natural, plant-based Tostones,” says Marie Gonzalez, Business Development Manager for Miami-based Prime Planet brand.

Another recent survey reveals that 68 percent of adults who snack now desire fresh ingredients, while 61 percent want low/no sugar snacks. Our green plantain Tostones have “no added sugar” and they’re also gluten-free, low-sodium, non-GMO, and Fair Trade. 

Depending on the specific Tostones flavor (Original, Lime, Sweet Chili or Habanero), these crunchy snacks also carry important certifications like Vegan and Kosher, increasingly important to those retail customers seeking “just the right snack” to satisfy their specific dietary needs and their taste buds.

So, when the day has come and gone, what next? Leftovers, of course! Take a look at this fabulous recipe that will help stretch your Thanksgiving Day leftovers in a creative way!
