If there’s one cookie that’s universally loved, it’s those nostalgic and addicting Thin Mints, hands down. And if mid-snacking sesh you’ve ever wished you could turn the indulgence into a healthier option, get excited: Chickpea Snacks company Biena is launching a dessert-friendly edition that’ll give your Girl Scout Cookie obsession a fiber– and protein-rich makeover.

According to a press release, the Thin Mints Chickpea Snacks are coming exclusively to Whole Foods this June. Yeah, yeah, you still have to wait a couple months, but lean into that anticipation and let it build, because it seems like the minty Fair Trade dark-chocolate-coated chickpeas could be more than worth the wait when it comes to both taste and nutrition.

“We’ve combined Biena’s good-for-you Chickpea Snacks with the timeless taste of Thin Mints cookies, all for 130 calories and 4 grams of protein and fiber.” —Poorvi Patodia, founder and CEO of Biena

“There are few things Americans anticipate more than Girl Scout Cookie season, so we are very excited to offer a Chickpea Snack inspired by the classic flavor of Thin Mints cookies,” said Poorvi Patodia, founder and CEO of Biena, in the release. “We’ve combined Biena’s good-for-you Chickpea Snacks with the timeless taste of Thin Mints cookies, all for 130 calories and 4 grams of protein and fiber.”

This isn’t the only new flavor coming to store shelves, though. Biena is also releasing Dark Chocolate and Salted Caramel flavors in addition to all the options already available. So, if you run out of your Girl Scout Cookie haul sooner than you would have preferred, this healthy alternative might just have you snacking your way through summer with a smile.

These protein-packed snacks will help you stay satisfied on the ketogenic diet. Or, learn how to make healthier, vegan loaded fries.
