Spicy roasted chickpeas

Did you know chickpeas aren’t really peas? They’re garbanzo beans! And their nutty taste makes them perfect for snacking any time — like while you watch your favorite flicks.

These low-calorie roasted chickpeas are packed with fiber and protein, so you’ll get full without binging while you binge-watch. They’re also rich in teeth-strengthening phosphorus and folic acid, which keeps your mouth healthy by promoting cell growth.
