When it comes to snacks for my boys, I always try to go with all natural options. That means avoiding things with hydrogenated oils, high fructose corn syrup and any other artificial ingredients. About a year ago we tried the Aged White Cheddar Pirate's Booty and have been hooked ever since. My oldest affectionately calls it "Pirate Popcorn".
Pirate's Booty is a product of Robert's American Gourmet Food. All of their snacks are:
* Gluten free
* Trans fat free
* No preservatives
* No artificial sweeteners
"Robert’s American Gourmet Food snack food products are delectably crunchy, all-natural, baked, trans fat, gluten free and possess great subtle flavors that will have you craving more!"As I mentioned we have been fans of their Aged White Cheddar for some time. My kids devour it and I've been know to eat my fair share as well. Pirate's Booty was kind enough to send me a treasure chest full of sample of each of their flavors. I actually had no idea there were so many other favors available! My oldest was so excited when he saw this treasure test and he couldn't wait to open it up and dig in! You'll notice its not full in my picture since we ate some before I could get my camera out. I plan on using it to store some of their toys now that it is empty.
So what other flavors are there? Besides the Aged White Cheddar they make Veggie, Barbeque, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Bermuda Onion and Caramel. In addition to all of these Pirate's Booty flavors, they have Wisconsin Cheddar Smart Puffs and Original Tings Crunchy Corn Sticks. I have to say that my new favorite are the Smart Puffs. Absolutely delicious! They are similar to your traditional cheese doodle type of snack, but much yummier and minus the bright orange coloring, which can't possibly be natural. I loved the Smart Puffs so much that I went out and bought myself a full size bag right away. (By the way, for those who shop at Stop-n-Shop, the Pirate's Booty and Smart Puffs are on sale, 2 bags for $5).
Not only are all of the snacks great for at home, but they are also perfect for your kids lunch box. With pretty much everyone back in school now, you'll want to make sure you put healthy snacks in there! Our grocery store also happens to sell the snack size bags which is really convenient. But if you want to save some trash, you can pick up a few of the big bags and fill up small reusable containers to put in with the kids lunches.
I would say that most of the big grocery chains carry these. If you are not sure who caries them in you area, you can check out their store locator or even buy by the case online.
One lucky reader will receive their own treasure chest full of Pirate's Booty snacks!
