Pirate Brands Pirate's Booty Review


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.

As the leader of the healthy snacking revolution, we've created products for the whole family that are healthy, all natural, baked and delicious. We've eliminated fryers and trans fats from all of our products and keep the ingredients simple. Our only additives are just good fun.

It's been 20 years and Robert is still continuing his journey by offering fun, healthy and deliciously baked all-natural snacks. You can find Pirate Brands products including, Pirate's Booty, Potato Flyers, Smart Puffs and Original Tings at a supermarket near you or at our online store!

When my Pirate's Booty first arrived I was amazed at the packaging. I received a treasure chest! It was so cool that I actually wrapped it back up and had my Husband to open it when he got home. I also took a lot of pictures. Here are some of them:
I couldn't wait to try Pirate's Booty! I love to snack on "cheese puffs" but I know that they are not very healthy. Pirate's Booty are all natural and Gluten and Trans Fat free. Luckily for my stomach, the bags I received were smaller and the perfect snack size. Every time I opened a bag, I finished it. Pirate's Booty comes in Aged White Cheddar, Veggie, Barbeque, Sea Salt & Vinegar, Sour Cream & Onion and New York Pizza. The first flavor I started with turned out to be my favorite: New York Pizza. Yummy! It had really nice spice and flavor. I even enjoyed licking my fingers afterwards. They didn't taste exactly like pizza, but they were close. 

My second favorite flavor was the Aged White Cheddar. I knew I was going to love this flavor and I did. I only wish that the flavor had been a little stronger. Even still, these were yummy and disappeared fast. You can't even tell that the rice and corn puffs are all natural and healthy. They are delicious. I loved all the other flavors as well. The Veggie ones tasted a little weird to me. I never thought I would eat a Veggie Puff. They were good though and had a nice salty taste. 

Pirates Brand also makes Original Tings (crunch corn sticks), Smart Puffs and Potato Flyers (baked potato chips) in addition to the Pirate's Booty. Pirate's Booty are a great solution for people that love to snack, but don't want all the fat and calories. They are also a super fun snack for kids. With a pirate on the bag, what kid is going to care if they are healthy? : )
