Heritage

Mariquitas is the name given to plantain chips in a region of Cuba (Oriente).
It was a popular item sold by street vendors in Cuba.

In the early 1960s, Mariquitas was brought to the U.S., and has been manufactured in Miami, FL since then. Today, it has become one of the leading plantain chips brands in the United States.

The Tropical Chips brand was created in 1986 to capture the unique feel of the tropics and to offer a flavorful snack for all to enjoy. With an exotic selection that includes plantain chips, cassava chips and white sweet potato chips, consumers are able to experience diversity in taste and product that is made with quality in mind. The “Tropical Appeal” of this brand is widely recognized and makes for a great item to be included in the produce section of supermarkets and stores across the nation.
