Saffron Road Introduces Two Globally-Inspired Crunchy Chickpea Flavors
Saffron Road has announced two new flavors of their existing line of globally-inspired Crunchy Chickpeas, Korean BBQ and Chipotle. Saffron Road's Crunchy Chickpeas are seasoned with a mixture of spices – adding flavor and kick to their go-to snack. The two new flavors join previously available flavors Wasabi, Falafel and Bombay Spice. The entire line of Crunchy Chickpea snacks are made with organic chickpeas and are certified gluten-free. These two new flavors also add to the brand's growing assortment of Non-GMO Project Verified products – now totaling 15 Verified products. As with all Saffron Road products, the Crunchy Chickpeas are made with all-natural ingredients and are Halal certified.
The new on-the go snacks offer consumers a protein-rich snacking option that measure up to Saffron Road's high standard of quality and taste, company officials say. Both flavors are full of spice for that mid-afternoon pick-me-up. Of special note to snackers, each one ounce serving of Saffron Road Crunchy Chickpeas contain five grams of protein and only 2.5 grams of fat – a rare occasion where there is more protein than fat in a snack food, officials add
- Korean BBQ: The Korean BBQ Crunchy Chickpeas combine a Korean bulgogi marinade, which consists of soy sauce, pear juice, sesame oil, garlic and red pepper, to create a distinct taste.
- Chipotle: Chipotles are made with patience by smoking-dry jalapeno peppers. Saffron Road's Chipotle Crunchy Chickpeas deliver a kick of Mexican heat with each bite providing consumers with a flavor-packed snacking solution.
"Saffron Road continues to uphold our commitment to bringing globally inspired flavors to American consumers," says Adnan Durrani, founder and CEO. "As consumers palates become more sophisticated, we believe these rich, global flavors will appeal to a wide variety of natural food consumers. Our Crunchy Chickpea snacks offer people a nutritious snack while also fulfilling their need for culinary exploration."
Customers can find the new Crunchy Chickpeas at Whole Foods Market's dry goods or snack aisles for the suggested retail price of $4.49.
