Like their lentil chips, Mediterranean Snacks’ HummuZ crispz are all-natural and gluten free. What exactly are “crispz,” you ask? They’re a light, crunchy snack made with real garbanzo beans that sort of occupy the middle ground between ‘chip’ and ‘cracker.’ They won’t fall apart when you dip them, but they’re not as heavy as a traditional cracker. They come in Roasted Red Pepper, Olive Tapenade and Roasted Garlic (my personal favorite!), and have 120 calories and 5 grams of protein per 14-crisp serving, which is a good thing, because you won’t be able to stop eating these! My sister and I commute back and forth from New Jersey to NYC together, and the other day I happened to have a bag of unopened Roasted Garlic HummuZ crispz with me. We were driving back from the bus stop when the following conversation took place:
Danielle – “I’m so hungry. Can we get food?”
Me – “We have dinner waiting in the fridge, just wait until we get home.”
Danielle – “Don’t you have those chickpea cracker things with you?”
Me – “Yeah, but I need to take pictures for the blog. You can have a few if you want though.”
Danielle – (opens bag & eats crispz) “These are so good. Have you tried them? Here, take some.” (hands me some as I’m driving)
Me – (eats crispz) “Holy crap, they’re amazing.” (eats more) “We have to stop or we’ll eat them all before we get home.”
Danielle – “But I can’t.” (eats more)
Me – “No, seriously (eats even more). Put them away.”
What you see here is literally all that was left in the bag by the time we got in. And remember, that’s ONLY there because we forced ourselves to close the bag in the car. I think you can guess how quickly these few remaining crispz got eaten as soon as I took this picture.
