Chickpea snacks manufacturer The Good Bean has moved into the confectionery aisle with the launch of Chocolate Covered Chickpeas.
The products start with lightly roasted and crunchy whole chickpeas that are enrobed in chocolate and finished with a crispy candy shell. Three flavours are available: dark chocolate, milk chocolate and mocha chocolate.
The Good Bean said the snacks are “rich, chocolatey and satisfyingly crunchy”.
“I am truly excited about diving into the confection arena with our chocolate-covered chickpeas,” said brand founder and CEO, Sarah Wallace. “At The Good Bean, I believe in sourcing the best possible ingredients and living mindfully, but I also believe in decadent indulgence.
“I knew if I was going to take on the challenge of launching a chocolate chickpea confection, it couldn’t be mediocre; it needed to hold up against premium candy and confections in terms of taste, and this really does. I think people will be surprised and delighted at how incredibly delicious and unforgettable this product is.”
The Good Bean Chocolate Covered Chickpeas are now available in the US with a suggested retail price of $4.50 per bag.
The launch comes weeks after The Good Bean acquired Texas-based Beanitos, the maker of bean-based chips and puffs.
