You'll Never Guess What's Inside This Easter Candy

I was at the Mediterranean grocery yesterday and spied these colorful little candies that were just right for my Easter table. But they have a surprise inside — can you guess what it is?

Did their shape give it away? These are candy-coated chickpeas! They're crisp and savory inside, and a little chalky.

They have a bit more protein and slightly fewer calories than candy-coated almonds, which makes them a health food. Right? Well, compared to the rest of your Easter basket, perhaps.

I really liked their crispy crunch, although I wished the chickpeas themselves had some salt or other flavoring on them.

Have you ever tried these?

Find them: Sugar Coated Chickpeas, $3.99 for 1 pound at Nuts.com
