Biena has launched several sweet chickpea snacks in the past, including both milk and dark chocolate-coated varieties, as well as a salted caramel flavor. At Natural Products Expo West, Biena unveiled the newest addition to its line, which will surely delight fans of Girl Scouts cookies.
The all new, officially licensed flavor mimics the taste of Thin Mints with a fair trade dark chocolate coating atop sea salt chickpeas. The chickpea snacks boast just 130 calories, plus four grams of protein and fiber, making them a better-for-you alternative to many sweet snack options currently on the market.
Across the food industry, a growing number of snacks are using the versatile chickpea as a base for everything from cookie dough to brownies for a better-for-you take on popular indulgences.
