I’m currently enjoying a pretty groovy snack that’s good for both your body and the Earth. HIPPEAS organic chickpea puffs are vegan, low-calorie, certified organic, gluten-free, kosher, non-GMO AND committed to organic and sustainable farming. Right on!
Nutrition-wise, Hippeas Organic Chickpea Puffs have 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein per single-serve, 1-ounce bag. They are made with all organic, high-quality ingredients and are 100% meat-free, dairy-free, gluten-free and kosher, making these puffs a nice choice for those with common food allergies and intolerances.
HIPPEAS come in these six flavors:
- Far Out Fajita – A fiery stash of chili, paprika and cumin puffs
- Pepper Power – A fist pump of pepper and a sprinkle of sea salt
- Happenin’ Hickory – Sweet tomato, onion and garlic with a stack of smokin’ hickory
- Maple Haze– Syrupy sweet puffs with a savory edge
- Vegan White Cheddar – Righteously cheese puffs… just without the cheese.
- Sriracha Sunshine – Tangy-sweet spicy jalapeño and paprika puffs
I shared these snacks with my boyfriend, who said his favorites are actually my least two favorites — Happenin’ Hickory and the Maple Haze. I didn’t like those two as much because they have a smoky taste. But if you like that bacon-smoky-wood-fired taste, you will love those flavors like he did.
HIPPEAS is a pretty rad company that is also out to do good things for the world. Check out this blurb from their website about giving back:
“HIPPEAS doesn’t follow the rest of the snack pack. They know that “tastes good” and “do good” are two philosophies that should happily go hand in hand. That’s why HIPPEAS plans to change things for the better, one chickpea at a time. True to its mantra of “Peas, Love & Giving Back,” HIPPEAS has partnered with Farm Africa, a charity working to end hunger and bring wealth to rural eastern Africa. For each pack sold, the brand will donate a portion of sales to work supporting chickpea farmers in eastern Africa to help grow themselves out of poverty – helping them to build a more prosperous life for themselves and their families.”
HIPPEAS Organic Chickpea Puffs in Far Out Fajita and Vegan White Cheddar are available at participating Starbucks® locations nationwide and will soon expand to additional retailers, including Whole Foods and Amazon.
Note: I received free samples of HIPPEAS Organic Chickpea Puffs for this review.
