The new Popped range is made from chickpeas and black-eyed peas

Bepps is expanding its lineup of pea-based snacks with its new range, Bepps Popped.

The Popped range is made with a combination of popped chickpeas and black-eyed peas, with the latter providing “extra crunch”, according to Bepps.

It will debut with two flavours – Barbecue and Salt & Black Pepper – hitting Tesco stores today (19 October) in a 70g sharing bag (rsp: £1.80).

Per serving, they contain 86 calories and claim to be high in fibre, offering a “better for you” alternative to other popped chips and crisps, said Bepps.

The supplier also claims the NPD is the first branded popped pea-based snack in the UK.

Its original black-eyed pea puffs, meanwhile, have secured listings at 300 Asda stores.

Two flavours – Sweet Chilli and Salt & Vinegar – have rolled out in the retailer’s vegan bays in sharing bags.

Bepps founder Eve Yankah said that with the NPD and retail partnerships, Bepps was “moving to the next level” and making “good headway” on its mission to provide “truly accessible and health-focused snacks for the mainstream consumer”.
