Saffron Road - Crunchy Chickpeas

I'm a big fan of Saffron Road's products.  Saffron Road is a socially conscious company that was founded in 2010. Since then, the popularity of this brand has skyrocketed and their products can now be found all over the country in natural foods markets. I previously reviewed their frozen entrees and simmer sauces and am excited to now review their crunchy chickpeas as well.

Crunchy roasted chickpeas seem to be a hot snack nowadays. As a great source of protein, chickpeas can be a healthy addition to a balanced diet. Saffron Road now makes five flavors of these chickpeas, all of which are vegan. I tried three of the flavors -- Falafel, Bombay Spice, and Wasabi.

I have to say that the Falafel was my favorite. With a mix of delicious spices, it is the onion and garlic powder that stick out the most. These chickpeas will take you on a journey to the Middle East.

Then there is the super strong Wasabi! This is a spicy wasabi-flavored snack that will leave you clamoring for some water and then...more wasabi chickpeas! These are incredibly addictive.

Last, but not least, are the Bombay Spice chickpeas that incorporate the bold flavor of Bombay spices. You'll feel like you are skipping through the marketplaces of Bombay while enjoying crunchy flavored chickpeas.

All of the flavors have a really nice texture -- not too hard, but just crunchy enough. And most of all, I like that the chickpeas are organic and Non-GMO Project Verified. They are also certified gluten-free.  At about $5 per bag, these are a great on-the-go snack. They also have two new flavors of Chipotle and Korean BBQ, which I'll be trying next.

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