The Good Bean Review & Giveaway {CLOSED}



Who loves my Roasted Parmesan Chick Pea Snack recipe?

Well if you do then you are going to LOVE these roasted chick pea snacks from The Good Bean company!

My family and I  were recently sent some to sample and loved them! Both of my boys have nut allergies so chick peas are their very favorite crunchy snack in place of something they can’t have. They come in 4 delicious flavors Sea Salt, Cracked Pepper, Smoky Chili & Lime as well as Sweet Cinnamon.  They are 100 % gluten free, Nut free, Cholesterol free, low fat, low in carbs and with nothing artificial!

They recently launched their Fruit & NO-NUT Bars which we also sampled. One word: AWESOME!










Apricot Coconut, Fruit & Seeds Trail Mix and Chocolate Berry!

Finding a healthy, nut free bar for my boys with nut allergies has always been a problem so I’ve always stayed away from packaged ones until now when we were sent them to review. My boys gave them a thumbs up! And of course I loved the fact they don’t contain a ton of unnatural ingredients and refined sugars.

Although they are not completely sugar-free they do use low glycemic sugars such as tapioca syrup and brown rice syrup.  The bars are manufactured in facilities that also process peanuts and tree nuts.   The Good Bean  follows Good Manufacturing Practices to ensure as little cross-contamination as possible, by segregating ingredient storage, deep cleaning the production lines, and periodically testing with microbiological swabs.

Perfect bars for on the go!!

Crunchy, chewy, soft, slightly sweet and healthy!
