Green Park Snacks Inc. has launched Hippeas Chickpea Tortilla Chips in Nacho Vibes variety. The company says the flavor was consumer-requested and has the crunch and taste of mainstream nacho-flavored chips. The product is vegan/dairy-free, certified gluten-free and non-GMO.
Available in five-ounce bags, which carry an SRP of $4,49, the company says each one-ounce serving has three grams each of protein and fiber.
“We are really proud of the Nacho Vibes flavor of our Hippeas Chickpea Tortilla Chips, as we’ve been working hard to perfect this recipe to surpass consumer expectations of what a chickpea tortilla chip can taste like,” states company CMO Julia Hecht. “This product more than stands up well next to its mainstream competitor from a taste and texture standpoint, but that’s where the comparisons end because Hippeas Nacho Vibes Chickpea Tortilla Chips are vegan and contain the nutritional benefits of both protein and fiber as well as no artificial colors, flavors or ingredients of any kind. Plus, these chips are made from super sustainable chickpeas, so we feel good about this product on all sides.”
According to the company, chickpeas used in the product are farmed using practices including conservation tillage to improve soil erosion and crop rotations that improve soil health. The crops are also farmed using 10 percent of the water of most proteins.
