I am 100% a snacker. I’ve eaten entire bags of cheese puffs in 2.5 seconds (or so.) One time, I tried to be healthy by buying rice cakes instead – as if the crunch of the rice cakes would replace the crispiness of the chip. It didn’t. But back then I didn’t know that I shouldn’t be buying those bland ‘ole rice cakes. I should have tried Pirate’s Booty.
Pirate’s Booty is a deliciously baked, all-natural snack that mom can feel good about adding to the lunchbox. Pirate’s Booty is made from puffed rice and corn and is gluten, trans-fat and tree nut free. Plus, the snack is only 130 calories for a one ounce bag. Also, with Pirate’s Booty, you get more puff per portion – a one ounce serving of Pirate’s Booty has more pieces than a one ounce serving of most competitive snacks, so your little one won’t feel short snacked!
Pirate’s Booty is available in a variety of flavors, so there’s something for everyone! Pirate’s Booty flavors include Aged White Cheddar, Veggie, Sour Cream & Onion, New York Pizza, Barbeque and Sea Salt & Vinegar.
I was really impressed by all the flavors available from Pirate’s Booty, and I tried every single one of the six flavors they sent. First, let me mention that the texture is between the cross of a piece of popcorn, a rice cake, and a cheese puff. It is a puff that isn’t mushy but still has a nice crispiness to it. You’ll find that in general, the flavors are a lot milder than traditional potato chips. The flavor is definitely there, especially with the Aged Sour Cream & Onion and the New York Pizza (which tasted amazingly like Doritos – only they were healthy.)
One of the testers was very hesitant to try any of the Pirate’s Booty. There is a stigma that healthy food can’t taste good. Well, Pirate’s Booty was able to successfully break through his walls with the Aged White Cheddar. He was amazed at how well the white cheddar complemented the taste of the puffs and was surprised at how good it tasted. If I hadn’t grabbed a few pieces when the bag first opened, I would’ve been short because he ate the entire bag very, very quickly.
Overall, I was impressed by the quality of Pirate’s Booty. Depending on which variety, the flavors will be either stronger or subtle, but will ultimately be tasty. The crunch factor is definitely there, making Pirate’s Booty a satisfying and delicious, healthy alternative for snacks.
About Pirate’s Booty
The Pirate Brands story began in 1987 in Sea Cliff, NY with our founder, Robert. Robert, a snack industry renegade and father of two, scoured the high-seas for a tasty treasure that would inspire people to live a little healthier and have fun while doing it. That’s when Robert discovered the cheesy rice and corn puffs we know today as, Pirate’s Booty.
Thanks to Robert and his tasty treasure, no longer do you have to eat “cheese” puffs dusted with neon orange powder with incomprehensible ingredients. When you buy Pirate Brands products, you are getting wholesome goodness without the guilt.
