Healthy chocolate sounds like an oxymoron, doesn’t it? Chocolate is known for being high in fat and sugar, with no real nutritional value. Dieters and weight management consumers are always searching for a chocolate alternative that actually tastes good, but have little success finding such an item. But don’t worry – Biena Snacks is here to help!
Biena has three delicious chocolate-covered Chickpea Snacks available – Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate, and Salted Caramel. The snacks are made with Biena’s Sea Salt Roasted Chickpeas covered in a layer of real Dark Chocolate, Milk Chocolate or Salted Caramel. The Dark Chocolate used in the Biena Snacks has 55% cacao content to impart a smooth, dark chocolate flavor without excessive bitterness, while the Milk Chocolate has 35% cacao content. You’ll also notice we kept the ingredients very simple. For example, the Dark Chocolate flavor has only 4 ingredients: chickpeas, fair-trade certified dark chocolate, sunflower oil and sea salt. The snacks themselves don’t contain any shellac or some of those glazing ingredients in other chocolate snacks to make them shiny and smooth. We’ve kept our snacks simple because they taste amazing as is!
All three flavors contain 4 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber. That’s more protein and fiber than you’d find in one serving from a chocolate bar. Not to mention our Chocolate Chickpeas contain half the fat and more healthy carbs to fill you up and limit overeating. Plus, one serving size of a chocolate bar is approximately 1-ounce while one serving of Biena Chocolate-Covered Chickpeas approximately 35 chickpeas!
For example, as you may know, dark chocolate is generally considered the healthiest type of chocolate. But a 1-ounce serving of dark chocolate still contains on average 12 grams of fat and 6.7 grams of sugar. Biena Dark Chocolate Chickpeas only contains 6 grams of fat and 5 grams of sugars! Not to mention our chickpeas have nearly 2X the protein and fiber. (I guess we did just mention it. 😆) And if dark chocolate isn’t your thing, we have you covered. You can enjoy our Milk Chocolate and Salted Caramel Chickpeas guilt-free as they contain the same protein, fiber, and low-fat grams as dark chocolate!
Another great thing about Biena Chocolate Chickpeas is that they are the perfect healthy snacks for work, at home and on the go. You can indulge in guilt-free chocolate anywhere.
