Garbanzo Dry Roasted Chickpea Snacks #Review

Garbanzo Dry Roasted Chickpea Snacks Review: June 2017

Garbanzo are about no faff no fuss snacking and keeping things simple. With no added preservatives or additives and also being low in calories, salt, sugar, fat and also scoring a low rating on the Glycaemic index, these snacks are a healthy addition to your daily diet.

Created with chick peas, which have been consumed throughout North Africa, Asia, the Middle East and the Mediterranean for many years, these little balls of brilliance are rich in fibre, minerals and vitamins. Also, Chickpeas release energy slowly meaning that they help to keep you fuller for longer.

They come in a range of lip-smacking flavours, I tried the sensational sweet sesame seed & honey, coffee coated and milk chocolate. These were ideal to use in my lush chocolate bite bakes. Scrummy savoury snacks included wasabi, Thai sweet chilli, Cajun kick and smoked hickory. Grab a handful, throw on a salad and it really packs a flavoursome punch to the dish.

Give Garbanzo a go and you will always find yourself wanting more.

Thank you for reading 🙂

With this in mind, the family went away and set up family run Freedom Japanese Market, with a determined mission to deliver quality Japanese to the world.
