Hippeas is a snack company that makes organic chickpea puffed chip snacks. This brand claims to be good for you (organic, GF, 3g of fiber, 4g protein), good for the environment (Chickpea plants naturally release nitrogen back into the earth as they grow), and give back to the community (They support Farm Africa, which is an organization that teach farmers in Sub-Saharan Africa).
With their yellow bright chip bags with a chickpea on front, it's a hard brand to miss. In fact, I've seen Hippeas spread across the vegan community through various monthly snack boxes and Instagram. They're calling out to the modern hippies (hippeas) and sending ~good vibes~ along with their delicious snacks. Each bag has chickpea puffs that are crunchy, crisp, and full of flavor.
Here are their other flavors:
- Far Out Fajita - chilli, paprika and cumin puffs
- Sriracha Sunshine - Tangy-sweet and spicy jalapeno and paprika puffs
- Vegan White Cheddar - cheese-less cheesey puffs
- Maple Haze - syrupy but also savory puffs
- Pepper Powder - pepper and a sea salt puffs
- Happenin Hickory - Sweet tomato, onion garlic, and bbq puffs
I've tried all the flavors they have available at this point, and my favorite is the "Vegan White Cheddar" because it tastes like a light version of a cheese puff and "Sriracha Sunshine" which has a spicy kick to it. Personally, these are some of my favorite chips because of the small snack-size portions, how crunchy the puffs are, and how it has a little bit of protein. Go pea chips!
You can get it at a bunch of major grocery stores like Whole Foods and Wegmans as well as Amazon.com.
