It’s been a long time coming, but we finally have our first taste of a new snack chip made from the shabangs of Thailand.
Shabang are a type of wild fruit found in the tropical rainforests of Southeast Asia, as well as in the temperate zones of Australia and New Zealand.
The fruit is so rich in protein and minerals that it is known for its strong flavor and nutritious qualities.
The chip is one of several products launched today by the Shabanga Chips Company to be distributed to retail outlets in the US, including Whole Foods, Target and Best Buy.
Shabangs are the traditional snack chips that have been eaten for centuries in Indonesia and Malaysia, and are traditionally eaten in the summertime in many Southeast Asian countries.
What makes these shabanga chips special?
The shabange chips are made with a mix of coconut, rice and spices. “
The kokuri, a combination of coconut and rice, is added to the kokura shabango, the shag of the shaban.
