BERKELEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Good Bean, the leader in legume-based snacking and maker of delicious better-for-you chickpea snacks, has launched a decadent new line of whole-bean snacks, Chocolate Covered Chickpeas. The wildly delicious treats add to The Good Bean’s expansive portfolio of whole-bean snacks with its three varieties, Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate and Mocha Chocolate.
This expansion into the world of confection is a first for The Good Bean as the brand continues to make plant-based snacking accessible and affordable for all. Unapologetically indulgent, but with strong health benefits, The Good Bean Chocolate Covered Chickpeas start with a lightly roasted and crunchy whole chickpea, enrobed in chocolate and finished with a crispy candy shell. Similar to a malted-milk ball, the experience is rich, chocolatey and satisfyingly crunchy. It is everything a premium confection should be.
“I am truly excited about diving into the confection arena with our chocolate covered chickpeas. At The Good Bean, I believe in sourcing the best possible ingredients and living mindfully, but I also believe in decadent indulgence,” said founder and CEO, Sarah Wallace. “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."
All varieties of the new line will have smart snackers rejoicing with 3g of protein and only 130 calories per serving. Made in small batches with Fair Trade chocolate and chickpeas grown in the USA, The Good Bean remains committed to sourcing the most delicious, minimally processed ingredients available. All products from The Good Bean are Non-GMO Project Verified, and Certified Gluten Free.
- Dark Chocolate: A mindfully indulgent snack with a light, crispy center, sophisticated dark chocolate flavor, and a subtly sweet crunchy candy shell.
- Milk Chocolate: A sweet and salty combination, reminiscent of your favorite malted-milk ball.
- Mocha Chocolate: A classic and creamy combination of chocolate with just a hint of coffee that will awaken your taste buds.
