    I first tried Hippeas at a girlfriend's apartment. I bit into one of the white cheddar puffs not knowing what they were. When I discovered they're made of puffed chickpeas I couldn't believe it.

    Hippeas come in a handful of flavors, but the white cheddar is my go-to. I've always been a sucker for white cheddar popcorn, and these Hippeas taste very similar to the real thing, except they're made from chickpea flour (which at least feels healthier than eating regular popcorn).

    They happen to be gluten-free and vegan, and they contain fewer calories, less saturated fat, and more fiber than your classic Pirate's Booty or Smartfood popcorn.

    Hippeas are crispy and delightfully cheesy. They're a bit denser than other cheese puffs, which makes them more satisfying IMHO. Whenever I'm craving something crunchy and savory, which is essentially all the time, I reach for a bag of these babies.

    They are a blessing because they are delicious but also a curse because I can't open a bag and not finish it.

    While they're meant to be snacked on by the handful, Hippeas also taste out-of-this-world when crumbled on anything from tomato soup to boxed mac 'n' cheese.

    These satisfying little chickpea puffs have quickly become my work-from-home fuel and my snack obsession. If you're looking for a new addition to your snack drawer, these have my vote.
