A new line of Pulse Chips will join RW Garcia’s artisan tortilla chips and crackers on store shelves this fall. The family-owned-and-operated snack brand debuted three new pulse crop-based varieties at the Summer Fancy Food Show.
“We’ve been eager to utilize pulse crops, which are versatile, earth-friendly and delicious,” explained Genelle Chetcuti, RW Garcia’s senior director of marketing. “We wanted to create an entirely new product line to honor the International Year of the Pulse.”
RW Garcia has created three Pulse Chip varieties that are a source of protein, are high in fiber and low in fat. They are:
Black Bean & Ancient Grains: With just eight ingredients and a base that’s 26% black beans, these chips have an earthy flavor punctuated by red quinoa seeds and chia seeds.
Chickpea & Ancient Grains: These chips have a subtle kick from red bell pepper flakes, and a mellow base that is made of 26% chickpeas.
Lentil & Ancient Grains: Made of 26% green lentils, these chips also contain protein- and mineral-rich amaranth, which gives a nutty flavor.
Like the brand’s other tortilla chips and crackers, the new Pulse Chips will be free of additives and preservatives, with clean ingredient decks. They are Non-GMO Project Verified, certified gluten-free and kosher, and produced in the company’s wholly-owned peanut- and tree nut-free facility. The Pulse Chips are sold in 7-ounce bags and have an SRP of $3.99.
