New Summer Snacking

Satisfy your snack cravings all summer long with all sorts of sweet and salty choices, made with high-quality ingredients.

Buttery shortbreads made with Vermont butter and eggs. Crunchy chickpeas coated in decadent, dark chocolate. Crunchy, organic puffed snacks made of peas.

Here is a rundown of some fun new choices you’ll find in-store at Brothers Marketplace:

Spritzal Cookies
A family company in Boston, Spritzal Cookie Company is inspired by Jody Walker’s beloved Nannie Greta. It was a Christmas tradition for the women in Jody’s family to gather in the kitchen with Nannie Greta to make cookies for family and friends over the holidays. This special tradition was passed on to Jody’s mom and eventually Jody, who began sharing it with her daughter. And now you can get these cookies in our stores! The original almond flavor still uses Nannie Greta’s original, all-natural, five-ingredient recipe: King Arthur flour, pure Vermont butter, pure cane sugar, pure almond extract, and cage-free local eggs. Also try lemon, with pure lemon extract swapped in for the almond.

Dandies Marshmallows
Make an all-natural campfire treat – or just a little sweet snack – with Dandies 100% vegan marshmallows. These light and fluffy marshmallows contain no high fructose corn syrup or gelatin, and they are the first ever marshmallow to be Non-GMO Project Verified. They’re also gluten free, free from most common allergens (peanut, tree nut, milk, egg, wheat, fish, shellfish, and corn) and they’re kosher.

With 3 grams of fiber and 4 grams of protein per 1-ounce serving, HIPPEAS are crunchy, light and made from chickpeas. These organic, gluten-free, vegan, baked snacks are tempting, in flavors that include Vegan White Cheddar – cheesy without the cheese – and Sriracha Sunshine – with a blend of tangy-sweet and spicy jalapeno and paprika. And they’re good for the planet, too. Chickpea plants naturally release nitrogen back into the earth as they grow.

Biena Chocolate Covered Chickpea Snacks 
Biena started with Massachusetts local Poorvi Patodia. She was pregnant and on a search for a healthier way to satisfy her snack cravings. Inspired by a favorite childhood snack, she started experimenting with roasted chickpeas in her own kitchen, developing a unique way to roast chickpeas to make them light and crispy, yet still maintain the protein, fiber and nutrients of a whole chickpea. All varieties are gluten-free, vegan, fair trade and non-GMO. And now, you can find these crunchy, protein-packed nuggets dressed in chocolate! Give this unlikely, indulgent combination a try, covered in Milk Chocolate, Dark Chocolate or Salted Caramel, with 4g protein and 4g fiber in each serving.

Peeled Snacks Puffs
Peeled Snacks started with a line of organic dried fruit and now they’re taking peas and making them into crunchy, Baked Organic Pea Puffs. A delicious, baked, melt-in-your-mouth snack, Peeled Snacks Puffs make it easy to eat more veggies. Available in Aged Parmesan, Butter & Sea Salt, and Nacho flavors, these puffs boast ½ cup of veggies in each bag. These non-GMO, gluten free snacks are also sustainable. That’s because peas like a cool, dry climate and don’t require much irrigation. They also keep soil healthy. Farmers use peas in their rotation of crops to help fix nitrogen levels in soil, and keep soil stays in good shape year-round.

Skinny Dipped Almonds
Founded by Val Griffith and her young daughter Breezy, Skinny Dipped Almonds are a recipe the that took two years in the making. This sweet, crunchy, better-for-you snack is full of dark chocolate flavor, sweetened with organic maple sugar, and easy to take on the go. Choose from Dark Chocolate Cocoa, with whole almonds skinny dipped in a thin layer of artisan dark chocolate and finished with a whisper of dark cocoa, Dark Chocolate Espresso, with a hint of espresso, and Dark Chocolate Raspberry, finished with a whisper of organic raspberries.
