I am always on the hunt for healthier snacks for my daughter. I don't like that so many snacks out there are loaded with all kinds of dyes, preservatives and the like. However, I have also noticed that many of the healthier snacks without all of those things, also don't usually taste very good. So what's a mom to do?
I was recently contacted by the great folks at Pirate's Booty to see if myself and my daughter would be interested in trying their product. I was very interested in trying it. In fact, I had come very close to purchasing Pirate's Booty at the stores a couple of times but just never did.
Pirate's Booty is a healthier snack choice that is gluten free, contains 0 grams of Trans Fats per serving, has no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives, are baked and contain only 70 calories per 1/2 ounce serving.
The true test would be the taste. They are baked rice and corn puffs in an aged white cheddar flavor. To say that my daughter and I are hooked is an understatement. We are addicted! They taste like a combination of popcorn without the hull and a rice cake. Then add in the white cheddar flavor. YUM! I love that they offer 1/2 ounce bag portions along with a larger traditional bag. The portioned bags are great to throw in my purse for a snack on the go. But really, let's be honest here. I think it's in our best interest in my house that there are portioned bags. With a large bag, we may eat the entire thing in one sitting :)
A 1/2 ounce may not sound like a lot but you do get a good deal in a 1/2 ounce bag because they are a very light puff.

The portioned bags would be great for camping, fishing, BBQ's for the rest of this Summer but even looking forward to the Fall, they would be great for those school lunches!
I am so happy to have found a new healthier snack for both myself and my daughter that we can enjoy without the high calories or guilt of not so great ingredients.
