Floribbean Flo’s

12 Jun

Discovered this great little bakery and gift shop on the South Tamiami Trail in Sarasota. Nancy Renko showed me around and gave me a taste of several of their products. Key lime cake, Key lime pie, cocoanut cream pie, and, last but cerrtainly not least, passion fruit pie. The latter was amazing — must go back and buy a whole pie (about $13). One little nibble was not enough. I purchased one of their “Florida Cracker” cookies, which are made with rolled oats, French cocoa, and Caribbean rum. Yummy!

I also bought a bag of plantain chips made by Tropical Chips (ARA Corp.) in Miami. The chips were sliced thin and had just the right amount of salt. For those of you who haven’t tried plantains, they are sort of a cross between bananas and potatoes – more savory than sweet – interesting flavor. People seem to either love them or hate them. I really like them.

www.tropicalchips.net – this site listed on the bag doesn’t seem to be functional at the moment.

    I just uploaded the site for Tropical Chips so it should be working now. Enjoy
