Saffron Road Giveaway: Free Crunchy Chickpeas!

Laura Siciliano-Rosen March 13, 2013

*Update: This giveaway has closed. Congrats to our winner, Sam!

For this new giveaway, one randomly selected reader will receive a shipment of Saffron Road’s delicious Crunchy Chickpeas (one each of the three flavors), plus coupons for the prepared-food brand’s other all-natural, halal, gluten-free world-cuisine snacks. Simply tell us your favorite Indian dish in the comments section to be in the running!

Saffron Road's Bombay Spice Crunchy Chickpeas

Saffron Road recently approached us about doing a giveaway on EYW, and we said, sure—so long as we like the product we’re giving away. We already knew we liked the prepared-food brand’s philosophy: Foods are all-natural and halal-certified; several are gluten-free; small, sustainable family farms are supported; livestock is antibiotic-free and veggie-fed. Ingredients are real foods, something we confirmed on the company’s website before getting any products in hand. And the brand strives for authenticity in world cuisine, with snacks and meals influenced by countries like India, Morocco, Turkey, Thailand, and Italy. (Well, as authentic as you can get in the frozen/packaged aisle of your local natural-foods store, anyway.) 

Of the products we tried, our hands-down favorite was the Bombay Spice Crunchy Chickpeas. There’s nothing not to love about these. Made with organic chickpeas dusted with spices like paprika and turmeric, they’re an addictively crunchy, spicy snack—an ideal pairing with a beer (or a lemonade, for those following a halal diet), not unlike something we’d seen at the Howzatt brewpub in Gurgaon, India, in fact. These make a great mid-afternoon pick-me-up in the office, too.

Besides Bombay Spice, these chickpeas come in two other flavors: wasabi and falafel. Want to try all three? Here’s your chance!

For this giveaway, Saffron Road will send one winner one of each type of Crunchy Chickpeas (3 total), plus a selection of coupons for additional products*:

1. Tell us in the comment fields below what your favorite Indian dish is. That’s it! (If you need some inspiration, see our India Destination section.)

2. Giveaway ends at 9pm (EST) on Tuesday, March 19, 2013. At that time a winner will be selected using random.org. On Wednesday, March 20, the winner will be announced in this post, and he/she will be contacted via email.

3. Note: The winner must have a U.S. mailing address.

*Saffron Road food products are available at many grocery stores and natural-foods stores in the U.S., including Whole Foods, Publix, Fairway, and Wegmans. See complete store-locator list here. Besides the chickpeas, another product we tried and really liked was the (frozen) Chana Saag (whole-wheat) chapatti wrap.
