Excellent

I buy a packet of these chickpeas every few weeks. I soak and cook the whole packet at once and freeze them on a tray until hard, then I bag them up and keep them in the freezer until I'm ready to use them. I have never had problems with them being hard or stony.

Bit old and bulletty, sadly

A long way from the best chick peas I've cooked. Very long soak and cook times still resulted in smallish semi hard chick peas, a sure sign they've been around a while. Will source instead from markets in future. It's a shame that Waitrose don't have a stronger range of pulses to provide to Ocado.

Quality beans, good value

It said '104 chickpeas' on the packet. Imagine my delight when I counted double that number and was still nowhere near the bottom..

Use dried chickpeas, soaked in advance, for the best flavour.
