Saffron Road: Great snacks for Super Bowl Sunday

Like many other Americans, I am trying to plan an assortment of snacks for Super Bowl Sunday. I love crunchies, but I don't really want chips -- too much messiness. 

Lately, I've gone back to Saffron Road's Chickpea Snacks over and over when I look for a snack for guests (or myself). 

I'm afraid this post should have been posted before Christmas -- that is when I received a sample of the three wonderful flavors of chickpea snacks from Saffron Road, a company that is very friendly to the gluter-free community.  But time and space got away, and the samples are long gone. So I continue to buy them when I can snag them in Atlanta.

But with the big game coming up, I want to suggest you try them. They'll be on my table.

Full disclosure:  My team lost to San Francisco. So guess who I'm rooting for? That's right -- the Puppy Bowl and the commercials!
