Champion Snack Mix

Champion Snack Mix

Full of antioxidants and healthy fats, this champion snack mix is well balanced and ideal for munching.  I am a firm believer you cannot go wrong with fruit, nuts, and chocolate… and when those delicious components come together with spiced chickpeas, it certainly brings the wow factor!  This mix can be enjoyed on its own, but it is a perfect popcorn topping as well!  Pair with Boom-Chicka-Pop, and you’ll be saying “boom chickpea wow”!
