The Good Bean - Roasted Chickpea Snacks

Roasted chickpeas? I was skeptical. But once I tasted them, I was sold! The Good Bean makes roasted chickpea snacks that are vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO, low fat, and high in fiber. Think that is a mouthful? Wait till you taste these snacks!

My favorite was the Smoky Chili & Lime -- just be prepared for a taste explosion. You'll get the taste of Spanish smoked paprika and lime with the lingering afterburn of the smoky Mexican chipotle chilies and you'll know you've died and gone to chickpea heaven.

The Cracked Pepper are super crunchy and coated with big pieces of Malabar cracked peppercorns and coarse salt.

The Sea Salt is the purest flavor of all with a light coating of salt that really lets the crunch of roasted chickpeas shine through.

Lastly, there is the Sweet Cinnamon, which was a bit too much cinnamon for me to just be snacking on, but I thought it would make an awesome sundae topper!!

All in all, I loved these snacks. The ingredients are pretty simple and completely natural, the taste is great, and they are very satisfying. They are also pretty good for you as one serving has as much fiber as two cups of broccoli and as much folate as three cups of spinach. They come in tiny little 2.5-ounce bags and are sold for $2.69 each. If you can't find them locally, you can buy them from Amazon here.  The only lingering question I still have at this point is, "who are those little people on the packages?"  I may never know.

Full Disclosure: Although the products were provided to me for free to review, that in no way influences my veracious opinion.
