Who wants a healthier version of their favorite cookie? Well, you’re in luck. Thin Mints Chickpea Snacks at Whole Foods are about to hit the shelves. The Girl Scouts of the USA-licensed flavor is modeled after the iconic cookie, but this time it’s in chickpea form. Hmm. Healthy, but still totally yummy.
Okay, okay we get it. The thought of combining a chickpea with chocolate (let alone chocolate mint) is…well, interesting. But sometimes you just need a healthy alternative to a sugary snack. And that’s what Biena’s chickpeas offer.

Founder and CEO of Biena, Poorvi Patodia, said (in a press release), “There are few things Americans anticipate more than Girl Scout Cookie season, so we are very excited to offer a Chickpea Snack inspired by the classic flavor of Thin Mint cookies.” Patodia goes on to add, “We’ve combined Biena’s good-for-you Chickpea Snacks with the timeless taste of Thin Mint cookies, all for 130 calories and 4 grams of protein and fiber. It’s a refreshingly delicious snack.”
