Spotlight | Sabanana Chips.

When I discovered Sabanana Chips a few weeks ago through a friend who sells them at their family-owned school, I knew right then and there that this was the product I want need for my upcoming food giveaway. After all, I'm all for green living and healthy eating, and what snack could be better than this?

Sabanana Chips in Sweet Original Flavor.
Paper-thin, bursting with flavor, with just the right crunch. They're packed in heat-sealed, stand-up pouches, complete with nutrition facts and product information. From there I found the Sabanana Chips website and sent an inquiry, asking if they would be interested in a product feature and giveaway sponsorship.

The response came right away, and Mr. Raymund Aaron (the brand's General Manager) was more than happy to provide the prizes for my giveaway. I had the chance to personally meet him over the weekend, as he drove all the way to San Pablo just to give me these. (Sorry, no photo opp. I was doing the laundry that day and I looked like crap, lol.)

A bayong (woven sack) brimming with bags of Sabanana Chips!

These mouth-watering chips are of the 'saba' variety (Cardaba banana) and are grown and produced at the Villa Socorro Agri-Eco Village and Farm Resort in Pagsanjan, Laguna. When ready for picking, the bananas are harvested, peeled, sliced thinly and then cooked via the “kawa sa pugon” (think huge cooking pan on a wood-fired oven) method all in the same day to ensure freshness.

They come in three flavors, too.

The classic goodness of the Sweet Original flavor.

The tangy Smoky BBQ flavor.

And the Roasted Garlic flavor, which my brother and I can't seem to get enough of.

Although Sabanana Chips are not available in groceries or supermarkets, there are lots of outlets all over Metro Manila and Laguna that carry the Sabanana brand. The Sweet Original flavor comes in 30g and 100g packs and are sold at Php 11 and Php 32, respectively. The Smoky BBQ and Roasted Garlic are available in 30g packs only.

And I really don't mind if my son mindlessly munches on these chips each time he watches the telly. Because these are not junk food! They're healthy food! Very, very healthy food! Compared to an apple, a banana has
  • 5x more vitamin A and iron
  • 4x more protein
  • 3x more phosphorus
  • 2x more carbohydrates
  • 2x more of other vitamins and minerals
  • loaded with potassium
And it combats a number of known illnesses, too!

I know most of the moms out there are smiling as they read this. Now let's turn that smile into a wide grin.
The winner of my May Buffet Giveaway will get a sack filled with all three flavors of Sabanana Chips, for FREE! Plus, I'm opening this giveaway worldwide so that my international readers can also have a taste of healthy, Philippine-made goodness!

The May Buffet goes live on May 1, 12MN EST and will run until May 15, 12MN EST. See you back here in a few hours, then! :)
