Toppa Top 10: Ten Trini Street Foods to Eat at Trinidad Carnival

February 4, 2016

6. Chow

With all of the fruit trees in Trinidad, it was only a matter of time before this delicacy was born. Though chow is probably one of the longest-standing treats in Trinidad and a rite of passage for childhood, these sweet and savory fruit snacks are a major part of your Carnival experience.

Tip: Want to sample what chow is like, at home? Add a little water, salt, black pepper, piment, garlic and a few pieces of bandaรฑa leaves (chadon beni) to your favorite fruit, and let set for a few hours. Enjoy!
