These say firm on the tin but they are rock hard.

Good value chickpeas. Usually cook with them eg added with fresh veg to a vegetable curry, and often eat them cold added into a couscous salad.

aha sorry to say i took quite the tumble when i opened this peas last night. this spilt all over my kitchen and then my dog came in my dog is big my dog hit my leg and i fell down onto the peas onto the floor but it was ok. my kitchen floor is soft (the wood is rotten) and while there even tho its dirty i ate some of the peas and i loved the peas! i loved the peas! i loved the peas! aha :)
These chickpeas are hard and don't soften
Hard and indigestible - undercooked
These chickpeas are OK. They have decent flavour, but are quite undercooked - which makes them hard and indigestible (unless you cook them out for a lot longer yourself). Really hard-going trying to get a smooth-textured hummus out of these straight from the tin, as they're just not cooked enough to break down and leave the hummus with a sandpaper texture even after a good 10 minutes in the food processor. Worth paying more for the Napolina ones unless you're going to cook them for a good bit longer than they've had.
Not sure why people are complaining that they are hard. It says on the front of the tin that they're firm. I use these to make vegan Moroccan curry and vegan chickpea "tuna". Not quite ideal for the tuna as these are quite firm, but for the price you can't moan. Just takes longer to mash.
Hard and small - like bullets
They were small and hard. Made houmus with this and turned out horrible.
What can I say - this legume has truly changed my life! Going vegetarian, I once wondered how I was going to get my protein, but by paring this tasty yellow delight with a smothering of mayonnaise, I've really found the perfect snack. After a run, my favourite treat is picking up one of these jars and my trusted fork, and simply indulging. I cannot recommend this enough to meat-eaters and vegans alike - you won't know what's hit you!
