Flamous Brands

Note: Thank you to Flamous Brands for sending me their falafel chips. These are delicious crunchy chips that are so flavorful. I was intrigued by them because their main ingredient is made from chickpeas. I love chickpeas, but in a chip?? Well, it works, these chips are awesome. They are more like tortilla chips, than the normal chip, like ruffle's or wise. I like it because they taste more "gourmet." Not only are they delicious, but they are high in protein and fiber. In addition, they use 70% organic ingredients. (check out the ingredients below). I highly recommend you try these chips.

From their website: We are the first to develop, produce and market a line of chips called Falafel Chips™. Falafel Chips™ are made from 100% vegetarian falafel patties; they are high in protein and fiber.

People have been growing chickpeas (falafel's main ingredient) for over 20,000 years, making them one of the early staples of the human diet and first agricultural plants on planet Earth. Falafels are 100% vegan fried patties of spiced chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) combined with spices and grains. Falafel patties are commonly served with fresh vegetables and Tahini sauce, or hot sauce. Falafel can also be served with hummus (creamy garbanzo sesame dip) or babaghanouge (roasted eggplant dip) either as a snack or as an appetizer.

There are two flavors of chips:
- original
- spicy
