Mediterranean Snacks Presents: BeanStalks! NEW Healthy Snacks for the Whole Family!

2:59 PM

If you have been a reader here for any length of time, then you will notice something about my family. We LOVE snacks. It doesn't matter if it is sweet, sour, crunchy, soft, spicy or mild...we eat it all! For me, enjoying something crunchy just helps to curb my cravings enough so I am not looking for more to eat. I have been on an "eating healthier and exercising more" diet lately and so snacking on healthier foods has been a goal of mine. Actually, when I look for healthy snacks I also try to keep my family in mind as well. They need healthy foods just as much as I do but finding healthy foods that don't taste like cardboard can be a challenge.

Several years ago I met Mediterranean Snacks and reviewed some of their products here on my blog. I remember distinctly just how wonderful their foods tasted and how quickly they were consumed by myself and my family. Mediterranean Snacks keeps snacking simple, quick and healthy all while making sure the tasty factor isn't lost in the mix. Here's more about this crunchy company...

Above all, we are proud to make and market delicious, nutritious snacks that have a pleasing crunch, and are calorically smart, to help you support your healthy active lifestyle.

Recently, I was contacted by Mediterranean Snacks regarding a brand new snack that they have added to their product line and I was VERY excited to check these new snacks out!
So, for this review I was sent a case of BeanStalks---crunchy tubes made out of different varieties of beans! There are three different flavors to choose from: Cheddar, Sea Salt and BBQ. I wasn't given the option of which flavor I received but was thrilled when I was sent three bags of each flavor....YUM!!! Totally awesome. :)
So, what exactly are BeanStalks? Well, they are crunchy snacks that are made out of three different varieties of beans: Pinto Beans, Green Peas and Cannellini Beans. Beans are considered a superfood so it is a no brainer as to why Mediterranean Snacks used them as their primary ingredient in these snacks.
The next question I had was: "Will my family like the taste of BeanStalks?" All I had to do was open a bag and I had a crowd around me, reaching out to grab a handful of BeanStalks for themselves. Each of my children loved eating these. They are especially tasty when paired with a sandwich wrap or another type of sandwich.
My baby girl also loved these BeanStalks. It didn't matter what flavor I gave her, they would keep her busy and satisfied for as long as I needed her to be occupied. I didn't have to worry about nutrition because she was consuming beans...in a tastier form. She didn't throw these on the floor like she does with some other snacks I give her either. THAT was nice. I also want to mention that Mediterranean Snacks BeanStalks are gluten free and are also non GMO, which is great.
I have some very dear friends who are on gluten free diets and when they came over recently to visit, I gave them a bag as well. They were very impressed with the flavor and commented on how difficult it is to find snacks for people with gluten free diets, that actually taste good. They immediately asked me where they could purchase these for themselves and how much they would cost. To answer that question, you can find Mediterranean Snacks at any of the stores found in this picture...

You can also enter your zip code to find stores near you by checking out the store locator on Mediterranean Snack's website. BeanStalks retail for about $2.99 per bag, which is a reasonable price. Please be sure you check out Mediterranean Snacks on their social media sites...Facebook, Twitter  and also on Pinterest! I loved trying out Beanstalks and know you will too. Check them out today!
