    Anything that's got even the tiniest amount of chocolate is our absolute favourite. The Green Snack Co. is always on our radar for their brilliant, lip-smacking Quinoa puffs but they've taken it up a notch by introducing chocolate ones. However, if you're sceptical about experimenting they have some usual flavours as well like fiery spicy puffs, peppy cheese, zesty kale and a couple more.
