How do I love thee? Let me count the ways..

I find myself unable to truly describe these beans. There's a nuttiness to them, so sometimes I feel like I'm eating (really) chunky peanut butter. But there's a sweetness to it that makes me think of chicken salad for some reason. Good with pita, or on crackers or just right out of the container. I love it for lunch, or an afterwork snack. Discovered them at the Wicker Park Farmer's Market and never looked back.

Versatile and tasty

We ordered the Best Beans in the Med and were able to use them over the course of three very different meals. Heated up or served cold. Eaten as is or used as one part of a larger dish. However you eat em it doesn't matter because they are so good and tasty. Order the larger size to get more usage out of these delicious beans!

you cannot go wrong with these! truly the best!

So tasty (and healthy!)

I purchased “The Best Beans in the Med” at the Wicker Park farmers market, and they taste great! I wanted a snack/side that would go with my VegeCleanse detox, and this product had all natural, no sugar ingredients. The dates add the right amount of natural sweetness. I tried a sample at the farmers market, and I was hooked. Try them!


We used this as a nice side dish for a few different meals.
