the good bean {giveaway}

There’s a really good giveaway happening today.

I’m pretty particular when it comes to accepting items to review and giveaway on the blog.  I try to make sure it fits with the way I eat and is also something you would be interested in and maybe haven’t seen before.

The Good Bean contacted me awhile back and asked if I wanted to check out their products.  I had seen them in stores but had yet to give them a try.  I’m definitely all about the beans, so I figured why not?  I looked at their website before accepting the products and was happy to see this is a non-GMO company and they also use Fair Trade certified ingredients.

They have 2 products right now, in a variety of flavors.

First, the crunchy-baked chickpeas.  And oh man are they crunchy!  You know how when you make them at home they lose their crunch after the first day?  Well, not these!  They are absolutely awesome added on salad or just eaten by the handful.  Chris and I found ourselves grabbing these to snack on instead of our usual go-to tortilla chips.

Flavors include:

  • sweet cinnamon : lightly sweetened with sugar and loads of cinnamon
  • black pepper : a little bit of salt but loaded with a spicy peppery bite
  • sea salt : loaded with delicious sea salt our favorite!
  • smoky chili + lime : packed with smoky flavor and a bit kick of heat pictured on the salad

Next up are their fruit & no-nut bars, filled with chickpeas!

Chickpeas in a granola bar may sound weird, but they totally won me over.  Almost the texture of puffed/crisp rice but thicker.  The beans are an awesome addition and add a good amount of protein + fiber.

I love that they aren’t too sweet and have a fantastic crispy texture.  It’s also nice to see a lower calorie bar [130 cals] that still packs in a good amount of protein + fiber [5g of each] without adding powders, inulin, etc.

  • chocolate berry my favorite!
  • fruit & seeds trail mix
  • apricot coconut

This company has definitely won me over with their quality products, commitment to ethical trade practices, and use of non-GMO ingredients [also hexane-free].  A huge thanks to The Good Bean for hosting this giveaway.  Hope you guys enjoy their products as much as I did!
