Hippeas launches veggie straw line and adds new plant-powered pulse
Hippeas is spreading The Peas & Love with the launch of new Hippeas Veggie Straws in three flavours: Straight Up Sea Salt, Rockin’ Ranch and Sour Cream and Onion. This delicious debut represents entry into a new salty snack category and pulse base, with sustainably grown yellow peas. Yellow peas, a category of superfoods from the same family as chickpeas, are a nutrient-dense complex carbohydrate and an incredibly sustainable crop. Hippeas Veggie Straws are now available at Whole Foods Market stores and select retailers nationwide.
Hippeas Veggie Straws are made from a blend of veggies including yellow peas (it’s the first ingredient!), tomato, beet, spinach, and kale! With 3g of protein and 140 calories per 1oz serving, these Veggie Straws pack a punch of plant power. They are also Non-GMO Project Verified, gluten-free and vegan! Hippeas Veggie Straws are available in three flavours:
Straight Up Sea Salt:
We tell it like it is. Straight up sea salt, with ingredients you can actually pronounce. Nothing hidden here but good vibes.
Let the good times roll with rockin’ ranch. A drum kick of flavour that’ll have your taste buds rockin’ all day long.
Sour Cream & Onion:
Realer than “real” cool sour cream & onion, packed with plant-based goodness.
“At Hippeas, we’re all about ‘Giving PEAs a Chance!’, so we’re really excited about the launch of Hippeas Veggie Straws and the introduction of a new plant-based snack offering featuring yellow peas,” stated Hippeas CMO, Julia Hecht. “Yellow peas come from the same legume family as our beloved chickpea and provide a delicious taste and crunch experience that really elevates our Veggie Straw line. Unlike the other veggie straws out there, Hippeas Veggie Straws are yellow pea based and contain vegetables like tomato, red beet, spinach, and kale — not just potato starch — plus 3 grams of protein per serving,” she continued.
Hippeas is all about mind, body, and soil. Peas support a healthy and diverse farm by naturally keeping nutrients in the soil, where they should be! Hippeas yellow peas are farmed using practices like conservation tillage to improve soil erosion and crop rotations that improve soil health. Peas naturally use less fertilizer by pulling nitrogen from the air, which helps lower the brand’s carbon footprint. At Hippeas, they believe that sustainable farming (and snacking!) is the way forward!
