OUR STORY - Two friends that discovered an awesome snack by accident.
We love food and we love being healthy. This is the simple recipe behind chic-a-peas. Our names are Dave and Darren. We are two friends that discovered chic-a-peas by "snack-cident." In our cramped NYC apartment, we left our dinner in the oven for too long. After the smoke alarm went off and we took out our chickpeas, we discovered a surprisingly crispy and delicious snack. It was at this moment that our idea for chic-a-peas was born. (True Story!)
WHAT ARE CHIC-A-PEAS? chic-a-peas are a baked, delicious and healthy snack. Made from all natural ingredients, they are protein packed, full of fiber and low in fat. Ingredients: chickpeas, safflower oil, spices... That's it. No weird ingredients!
Did we mention they taste good too? We love chic-a-peas and we know you will love them too.
WHAT ARE WE TRYING TO DO? Provide kids with a healthy and tasty snack option.
We created chic-a-peas for anyone who enjoys healthy food. When Dave's nephew, Hayden (age 7) tasted chic-a-peas, he couldn’t put them down. He was not eating candy, or a snack full of empty calories, he was snacking on a healthy food that actually tasted good. The kids in our video are real chic-a-peas fans. They taught us that if kids were presented with a healthy snack option, they would choose it over other snacks!
The more we thought about it, the more powerful this realization became. Kids eat snacks that are full of sugar, sodium, fat and other preservatives we can't pronounce. Even snacks that claim to be healthy, often have unhealthy and unnatural ingredients listed on their packaging. We want to make chic-a-peas available to parents and children so they can ditch unhealthy snacks and replace them with healthier alternatives. Help us make snacking a healthy choice for kids.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP?
We need your help in order to complete our first production run and print our packaging. Our two flavors- sea salt and falafel are shown below.
We are passionate about our product and can't wait to make it available for healthy snacking. Now we need the funding to print our packages and produce our product. The above package is our prototype. Our goal is to print 25,000 packages of each chic-a-peas flavor- sea salt and falafel. Once we print our packaging we will have the ability to introduce chic-a-peas to your local food store, supermarket, and schools. Help us make snacking a healthy choice.
Peas, Love & Happiness,
Dave & Darren
Risks and challenges
While we do not envision to have any setback as we have carefully estimated and calculated the amount of funds needed to fulfill our project, we could encounter a situation where our suppliers can not fulfill an order in a traditional time frame. To be safe, we have provided conservative delivery schedule estimates. We have budgeted additional time so in the event that this does happen we will still be able to deliver on our rewards.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
