What’s going on guys??! Raining ass Friday and its slow as hell at work. I figured I would kill a bit of time and write up a full review on my thoughts about the company Enlightened and their product Roasted Broad Beans.

I like beans. Baked beans, Green beans, Bean Brownies, all sorts of beans. Good carb, good protein, good fiber. What else do you want.

Now, I want to say I am not affiliated, endorsed, or anything like that with this company. I was just lucky enough to win a giveaway and really enjoyed the product.

How nice =]

They also have ice cream which I would really like to try, but not stocked by me =[

So, What are Broad Beans?

“The best-kept secret in healthy snacking! Enjoyed around the world for their delicious flavor and satisfying crunch, broad beans are a nutritional powerhouse packed with protein and fiber.”

Then What are Enlightened Broad Beans?

“ENLIGHTENED CRISPS

are lightly roasted in sunflower oil, sprinkled with sea salt, and seasoned to perfection. With only 100 calories per serving, they are a great anytime, on-the-go snack! ENLIGHTENED Crisps are also certified vegan, gluten free, non-GMO Project verified, OU kosher, and wheat free. So go ahead… spill the beans.”

Here is a bit of a back story of the company.

@eatenlightened roasted broad beans Garlic & Onion.
First of all I wanna say thank you to @eatenlightened and @lowcarbcooking for hooking me up with a nice little goodie package.
Secondly, I freaking love these. At 2.5f/15c/7p 3fiber I could eat these all day. Awesome change up if you like munching on sunflower seeds, nuts, etc. Awesome flavor, great crunch(made a good topping on my chicken lo mein) and leave a nice taste in your mouth. Cool that it’s beans to haha. So many flavors to try.
Overall: 9/10
Would I buy: yes
Would I recommend: yes

Back with another review.
Today I’m doing 2 more flavors of the @eatenlightened beans.
Sriracha: first bit is sweet then come the heat in and gives you just the right amount of zing to know its Sriracha but not to hot where it looses flavor(like lots of Sriracha products) I could eat these for days, and threw some on my chicken Sammy which was a great idea.
Sea Salt. Perfect amount of salt flavor, and no to over powering. Threw these in my soup and they kept their crunch for some time. So much better than an oyster cracker.
No way to rate one over the other here cause it would just call to personal likings on flavor.
I would give them both a 9.5/10 just cause there is always room for improvement in anything.
Would I recommend: yes
So much you could do with these. Salads, chex mix, dish toppers, etc

They Also have BBQ and Wasabi flavor not pictured as well.

I highly recommend these to anyone and everyone! So much potential with these bad boys. I will be making these a staple in the diet. I wish I could get my hands on their ice cream to! Go check them out!
