Supermarkets: Puerto Rico

I really enjoy going to local supermarkets to get a sense of the snack food and items that seem unique to the culture of the location. In San Juan, we picked up several snacks and various local items that can not be found in the States.  I have purchased many of plantain chips at the Latin section of my supermarket, however these brand of Filler plantain chips.

Platanutures with garlic flavor are thin, crispy and really fun to snack on.

They look like banana chips, but not.
