The Good Bean Chickpea Snacks

By | Dec 3, 2014

I think it’s a rarity to find a crunchy snack with a hint of saltiness that you don’t feel guilty about eating, but that’s exactly how I feel about The Good Bean’s Chickpea Snacks.  They are crunchy, tasty and quite versatile.

We had a few bags of these snacks around at the National Foundation for Celiac Awareness (NFCA) office.  They disappeared in a short amount of time as many of the team members enjoyed the roasted chickpeas.  I liked snacking on these right from the bag in the afternoon when you just need that little something to hold you over until dinner.  I was surprised that the Mesquite BBQ flavor was my favorite, since I usually tend to not like barbecue flavored snacks.  I snacked on these by themselves, but also tossed them into my salad to give it that little something extra. This is definitely a great crouton alternative – gluten-free and not loaded with calories.

The Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper varieties are perfect for tomato soup instead of using gluten-free crackers.  I usually add my own pepper to tomato soup, but these Chickpea Snacks have enough flavor on their own. No extra seasoning required!

The folks at The Good Bean say they set out to replace their favorite chocolate cereal with a gluten-free, healthier version – hence their Chocolate Chickpea Snacks made with sweet cocoa and vanilla. I wasn’t sure about chocolate and a chickpea at first, but I was definitely pleasantly surprised when I gave it a whirl.

There really is a Chickpea Snack flavor out there for everyone.  Others include Sweet Cinnamon, Smoky Chili & Lime and Thai Coconut.  For more information on the snacks and ideas for how to use them, head on over to The Good Bean site.
