New from Pirate’s Booty® -- Pirate’s Booty Carrot Snacks (Made with Real Carrots) and Pirate’s Booty Crunchy Treasures (Review)

Disclosure:  I was sent samples from the vendor in order to write up an honest review.  All views shared are mine and mine alone.



Savannah has become known as the Pirate's Booty girl at her preschool, because she continues to bring in bags of these tasty snacks to share at snack-time with her classmates.  And, each and every time the kids see her with bags of Pirate's Booty in the AM at drop-off, they get excited as they have all become fans themselves. :-)  


So, when I found out that there were two new product additions to the popular Pirate's Booty brand, I couldn't wait for Savannah to try them, and share with her friends at school.  But, before we could pack up the bags to bring to school, Savannah and Bella caught sight of them and had to have a little taste test.  And, that taste test led to them finishing up the two bags of Pirate's Booty that we were sent. :-)

As a parent to two picky eaters, I love when I stumble upon a non-sugary snack food that the girls will eat, and will ask for when they get hungry. Since trying Pirate's Booty snack puffs last year in veggie and aged white cheddar varieties with my family, we have been hooked. In addition to buying and bringing in bags to Savannah's school, I also make a point to have a few bags in the pantry for snack time, or to pull out when the girls have their friends over. Just like salty snacks most of us find ourselves reaching for, Pirate's Booty snacks will have you reaching for more and not being able to stop after just one.  I know, as I have personally found myself opening up a bag for the girls, and helping them finish it, as they are just that good!



"Pirate’s Booty Crunchy Treasures is baked rice and corn puffs in four pirate-themed shapes – X marks the spots, anchors, ship wheels and parrots – and blended with real aged white cheddar cheese.  Crunchy Treasures is made without artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.  The snack is also gluten, peanut and tree nut free and has 0g of trans fat per serving."

While I knew my girls would like the Pirate’s Booty Crunchy Treasures as they are just like the other Pirate’s Booty corn puffs made of aged white cheddar, but now in fun pirate's shapes, I wasn't sure if they would like the new Carrot Snacks variety, which is made with sea salt.  


Pirate’s Booty Carrot Snacks are baked to create a crispy puff that is not only tasty but also provides an excellent source of Vitamin A

This baked carrot and corn puffs snack is Gluten-free, has 0 grams of trans fat per serving, and doesn't include artificial colors, flavors and preservatives, which as a parent I love knowing. 

When we received the two Pirate's Booty samples recently, I was surprised to find the girls reaching for the Carrot Snacks first.  They saw the pirate snacking on the carrot in the picture on the bag, but also saw the puffs, which to them looked like cheddar cheese puffs.  If I hadn't told them that this corn puff snack contained carrots, they would have never known.  They both just said it tasted like a cheese puff -- even though it has no cheese in it at all -- just looks like one.  :-)

An excellent source of Vitamin A, this new addition the Pirate's Booty snack line, will definitely become a favorite among kids and adults.  Needing a mid-morning or afternoon snack, or snack to include your child's lunch box?  Why not give your kids these tasty carrot snacks?  My girls continue to ask for these baked carrot and corn puffs, and tomorrow for snack time at Savannah's school, the class will be munching on these healthy corn puffs (with most not realizing they are eating carrots) :-)
