Pirate's Booty Review & Giveaway!


Pirate's Booty natural snacks take the "junk" out of junk food. Compared to the mainstream "turn your fingers day-glo orange" brand of puffed corn snacks, Pirate's Booty has half the fat (5g a serving versus 10g) since they are baked. Pirate's Booty also has almost half the sodium as well. And that junk I mentioned? Pirate's Booty snacks contain NO trans fat, NO artificial colors, and NO artificial flavors.

Pirate's Booty sent us a treasure chest full of their snacks to try out, and the Sprouts were so excited. We hardly ever buy chips and the sort, due to their tendencies to be full of hydrogenated oils and artificial junk, all of which we avoid. It's so great to have an alternative in which we can satisfy our snack cravings... and boy, do these ever!!

Being a cheese fiend, my favorite so far has been the Aged White Cheddar flavor. The BBQ ones were really yummy as well- just enough flavor to give it a kick, but not too much (no stinky breath afterward). The Sprouts seemed to enjoy the Veggie puffs the most... very unique, savory flavor.

You can purchase Pirate's Booty directly from their website, or use their Store Locator to find Pirate's Booty locally.

You can also win Pirate's Booty by entering this giveaway! Winner of this giveaway will receive a treasure chest containing 6 bags of Pirate's Booty natural snacks!

Mmmm. New York Pizza sounds the best to me. Although didn't they used to have a caramel version? That was my favorite, once upon a time ... ;)

Pirates Booty! Yay. One of my favorite snacks. I'm just a huge fan of their aged cheddar!

Yummmm!
