Chickpeas were a staple in my house growing up. My mom was always putting them in salads or we would have it as a side dish. During college, I really got into hummus, which is basically chickpeas mashed up. I just recently found out that you can roast chickpeas & eat it as a snack. So when I heard about Biena’s product line of roasted chickpeas, I was eager to try it!
I was graciously sent a sample pack of six flavors. Each flavor is made with less than 6 ingredients & packed with enough protein to satisfy your snack craving! The flavors I received are:
- Rockin’ Ranch
- Cinnamon Crunch
- Sea Salt
- Honey Roasted
The texture & the taste that you get when eating Biena Snacks is so satisfying. I love crunchy, salty things, so Barbeque & Sea Salt are super tasty to me.
My hubby & daughter love sweeter things, so they both enjoyed the Honey Roasted & Cinnamon Crunch.
Speaking of my daughter, for those who follow my blog, you may remember that she has a nut allergy. When I snacked on the Honey Roasted chickpeas, it gave me the same memories of noshing on honey roasted peanuts. Since my kiddo can’t have peanuts, this is a great alternative for her. My husband also said that the Barbeque chickpeas reminded him of eating BBQ Corn Nuts as a kid (only the chickpeas aren’t as hard on your teeth). 😉
Biena Snacks are portable, great for long drives, with a resealable zip lock pouch. It makes for a great after school snack or you can throw a pouch in your bag for those weekend little league or soccer games.
The Habanero flavored roasted chickpeas have a definite kick to it! I’ve taken to adding that flavor or Rockin’ Ranch to my salads. It has the same yummy crunch as a crouton!
My daughter & husband discovered that Biena Snacks pair really well with their favorite dessert – ice cream!
