Chic-a-peas - Snack Food Review and Giveaway

I received products for review. The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way. Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services. Your opinions and results may differ.

Although I exercise a few times a week, I have an overnight desk job where I'm rarely able to leave from my area. Because of this, I try to have healthy snacks on hand to consume when I'm hungry (or even bored). Just a few days ago I received Chic-a-peas and have already eaten both bags at work (not all in one sitting).

Entrepreneurs David Levi and Darren Shlisky reheated leftovers a few years ago, they had no idea that one small cooking misstep would result in a different career path for both of them. Levi and Shlisky, both lifelong fans of Mediterranean food, had some leftover chickpeas from a dinner out the night before, and they accidently left them in the oven a smidge too long. The result was a crunchy (albeit slightly burned) and very tasty chickpea. After a year of refining and perfecting the recipe, Chic-a-peas was born as a new snack foods company in 2013.


Chic-a-peas come in two flavors, Sea Salt and Falafel. Sold in resealable pouches, the Sea Salt flavor is made from simply chickpeas, a touch of oil and sea salt. Falafel flavored Chic-a-peas contain chickpeas, a dash of oil, garlic powder, onion powder, sea salt and other spices. Chic-a-peas are high in fiber and protein.

Chic-a-peas have a very crunchy texture when you bite into them. They're actually quite delicious and are great to eat by the handful or as toppings on a salad. the Sea Salt Chic-a-peas don't have a lot of flavor. They're good but I liken it to eating a well-cooked chickpea. Falafel Chic-a-peas have the same crunch but pack more flavor. Chic-a-peas are simple snacks that satisfy my cravings and I don't have to feel guilty eating them.

Win It!

One person will win pouches of Chic-a-peas in both flavors.
