distributing, and marketing healthy, innovative, bean-based snacks.
The Good Bean launched in September 2010 with a line of first-to-market All-Natural Roasted Chickpea Snacks in 4 flavors. They’re an excellent alternative to standard snacks such as chips, nuts, pretzels and popcorn – gluten-free, nut-free, high protein, high fiber, and low fat.
In February 2012 we launched a second product line, The Good Bean Fruit & No-Nut Bar, a line of wholesome snack bars for the extremely popular fruit & nut bar category. We replaced the nuts with high-fiber, high-protein chickpeas for a bar that has 40-60% less fat than the competition. Like our chickpea snacks, our bars are a unique alternative in the category due to their health benefits, and also contain Fair-Trade and clean-processed ingredients.
