About Fabalous:

Fabalous, developed by Coppola Foods, represents a range of treats to be enjoyed guilt free with the magic of chickpeas. Good for you and for the planet!

Fabalous organic hazelnut and cocoa chickpea spread is the first organic chocolate spread with chickpeas as the first ingredient: 32%. Each jar contains on average 128 dried chickpeas and 8 shelled hazelnuts. As a result, it contains 11% protein, or 81% more protein, 57% less sugar and 43% less saturated fats in a jar than the leading chocolate spread. It is also palm oil free, diary free, soy free and plant based. Fabalous is packed in plastic free and BPA free jars.

The chickpea base used in Fabalous spread is obtained through the upcycling of the chickpeas used in a proprietary production process with a pending patent. Chickpea proteins extracted during this process are used as a plant-based alternative to egg proteins in food manufacturing.

Fabalous organic hazelnut and cocoa chickpea spread has already won multiple awards, including:
