You've Never Had Chickpeas Like This!

Updated on November 22, 2013

If you like eating healthy and want to try something new then you need to check out the Nutty Bean Co.'s ChickPz today!

These aren't the type of snacks that are going to go bad quickly, they're healthy and they are quite portable, but how do you feel about chickpeas?

Actually, before you answer that question, let me introduce you to the variety of flavors you might be introducing to your mouth in the near future. There are other roasted chickpea snacks out there but they're either too bland, salty or loaded with sugar. But when the Nutty Bean Co. sprouted up in 2010, they did things right and not only made some really healthy chickpeas but they created some awesome flavors like...

  • Sweet and Spicy Chipotle
  • Sesame Crunch
  • Sea Salt
  • Cinnamon Crunch
  • Honey Roasted
  • Dark Chocolate
  • White & Yellow Roasted

The flavors range from sweet to spicy to just plain roasted chick peas, if that's what you want. You have quite a few flavors to choose from, so I don't think you're going to get bored with this snack.

7 Reasons to Love These Chickpeas

If the variety of flavors hasn't already convinced to try some of these little balls of awesomeness out then take a look at how healthy ChickPz are.

These snacks have...

  1. No Trans Fats
  2. No Added Oils
  3. No Preservatives
  4. No Artificial Flavors
  5. No Cholesterol
  6. No High Fructose corn syrup
  7. No Genetically modified ingredients

And that's on top of the fact that they are gluten free, low in fat, have no artificial coloring and are packed with protein, iron, fiber, potassium and a bunch of other good stuff. Hmm... I guess you have more than 7 reasons to love them!

The Original Video

And I actually bought a few of these a while ago to celebrate National Eat Beans Day on July 3rd, and I had no idea how good they would taste.

But I made a video so others could watch me sample the four flavors of ChickPz that I bought: Tuscan Garlic & Herb, Sesame Crunch, Hot & Spicy Chili and Chai Vanilla (now called Cinnamon Crunch).

The Tuscan Garlic & Herb wasn't too bad and it tasted kind of like something you'd whip up for dinner. But it appears that they either changed the name of this flavor or dropped it completely because I don't see it in their store anymore.

The Sesame Crunch was actually pretty good; it had a mild sweetness to it and it clusters together like a giant granola bar in the bag. But I'm happy to see that this flavor is still available because it was my second favorite out of the four.

The Hot & Spicy Chili is another one that either got dropped from the lineup or just had its name changed, but it had a nice spice to it. It wasn't too hot, but it would give your tongue a little tingling.

And the last flavor I tried, the Chai Vanilla (now called Cinnamon Crunch), turned out to be my favorite out of them all. They have a really good vanilla flavor which is coupled with what seems to be cinnamon. It reminded me of eating cinnamon toast for some reason.

But guess what happened when the Nutty Bean Co. saw my video? They loved it so much that they sent me 4 new flavors to try out!

They were nice enough to give me a delicious thank you, so it's only right that I make another video just for them.

Watch the video below to see how I like the last four flavors they sent me.

      No problem, lcbenefield... thanks for sharing it with your friend and voting it up! Let me know how you like them!

      I'm glad you get something out of the work I put in, WD Curry 111... it's a lot of fun and quite the adventure for my body as well! You'll have to let me know what you think if you order some!

      U da man again Beando13! I have never tried them, but on your recommendation . . .

      They grow well in our lousy, nematode ridden Florida soil. Can a Cuban or Puerto Rican make some good soup out of them? Is a five pound robin fat?

      You are always making me hungry. I think you have one of the best gigs around, and I appreciate the ideas you have given me about how to drive this hotrod.
