It’s a Good One: Chickpree



The snacks are better in Little India
OMG, wasabi peas are so passé. Our current addiction is the spicy chickpea, an Indian creation and a truly superior form of junk food. Deep-fried chickpeas are coated with a fine dusting of salt, pepper, turmeric, and “other spices.” And those other spices sure are spicy.

At Little India, a grocery store on East 28th, new and exciting snack foods abound—including several incarnations of the spicy chickpea. But our favorite was Chickpree, from the brand DEEP.
