The Good bean Product Review

Posted on Feb 12, 2018


Crunchy, crispy, deliciously addictive!  Yes, that is how I would describe a new product I tried recently called The Good bean.

There are times when I really just want a good savory snack.  Most of the time I think of a sweet snack (because I have the biggest sweet tooth EVER!!), but every once in a while I get a craving for something different, something crunchy with a bit of savory flavor!

Enter The Good bean!!!  I was honored to receive a couple products in the mail to test and review here on my blog.  The Good bean company is new to me so I was definitely anxious to give their snacks a try.  They sent me two (6 oz) bags:

Classic Hummus Crunchy Chickpeas — I’m sure many of you have heard of or even made some roasted chickpeas before.  I was very impressed with the taste factor going on with these beans.  They give a pop of yummy hummus flavor with each bite!  There are 6 grams of protein in each serving…that’s bean protein right there!  These chickpeas are indeed crunchy and well, I don’t like to say I’m addicted to food, but I found myself reaching for the bag for just another bite!  Let me tell you that each 1 ounce serving equals to about 1/3 of a cup.  That’s quite a few and they will keep you satisfied with their punch of protein.

Balsamic Herb Crispy Favas + Peas — I’ll be honest, I’ve never heard of a fava bean…have you?  No time like the present to try them though!  They are better known as a field bean, related to the pea family and are native to North Africa southwest and south Asia.   I actually really liked this snack alot!  I think it’s because they are a flatter bean and crispy (kinda gave me the impression of eating chips).  The peas are a nice addition as well.  The serving size is about the same as the chickpeas…1 ounce per serving, which is more than you might think.

What I love about both of these snacks is that they had a powerful crunch to them.  If you like crunchy snacks, these would be perfect.  I’m thinking great road trip snacks!

I always want to mention that because this is a Trim Healthy Mama blog some of the food reviews I do are a personal choice or maybe even off plan for the trim healthy mama.  There are those out there who can eat a small portion of these sorts of healthy snacks and not have weight issues, but do remember to listen to your own body!  The Good bean products are a great alternative to unhealthy junk food for sure!  So check out their website and if you ever see The Good bean snacks in your local stores, give them a try.

  1. Could these (measured serving size) be paired with a lean protein for a E snack?Post a Reply
    • Yes that would work! A serving of the chickpeas has 6 grams of protein and the Fava beans/peas have 7 grams of protein per serving. It's a great snack! :)Post a Reply

  2. When will this be on the market? Where at? Like walmart. .Post a Reply
    • Since this brand is new to me, I never thought to look in grocery stores for them. I did check online and it's possible that some Walmarts sell the Good bean brand. Of course when all else fails, go to Amazon :)Post a Reply
