I LOVE PIRATE’S BOOTY! Cheesy, puffy, salty delicious-ness. So I was in Whole Foods browsing the snack aisles, and saw Chocolate Pirate’s Booty. At first I was a bit taken aback/weirded out. Wait….cheesy and chocolatey? I was almost going to buy pita chips instead, but then I decided to give it a try. Why not? Maybe it would be delicious!

mmm. puffy.

I picked up a piece- probably one of the more chocolatey ones. It had almost a chocolate dusted film on it. I ate the piece, and could say it certainly had more of a cocoa flavor than chocolate. And to calm my cheesy-chocolate fears, there was no cheese flavor, but there was the flavor of the corn puff. (PHEW- imagine how gross it would have tasted if it was cheesy AND chocolatey? EW!)

I tried a few more. Crunchy, light and typical texture of Pirate’s Booty. It was mildly sweet, some had a bit of a vanilla flavor. They overall to me tasted like less sweet, bigger and more puffier pieces of Cocoa Puffs cereal. They weren’t bad, and the more I ate them, the more I think I liked them.

I look forward to trying them with peanut butter (oh c’mon, you saw that one coming!) and I also think they would be really good in a “trail mix” type, or paired up with a peanut butter cereal, like PB Cap’n Crunch! So overall, 3 stars. Not bad, but not ahhhhhmazing.

WHAT’S your favorite chocolate snack? (other than chocolate!!) Mine?? Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins =)

Oh. And I fail miserably at taking photos of the nutrition facts, I KNOW. Sorry =P

Pirate’s Booty

Author: healthnuttxo

tyboo Robert’s American Gourmet makes this yummy treaty in several varieties, but today I’m trying the Original Pirate’s Booty and Pirate’s Booty Caramel, provided to me by Robert’s American Gourmet. I like the cute pirate on the front saying “Thar Be Good!”. I couldn’t agree more!

In it’s original form, the Pirate’s Booty is cheesy tasting, light, and puffy. They are baked and then blended with real white cheddar cheese.It has a nice taste of aged white cheddar, and these puffs melt in your mouth the second they hit your tongue. You also get a LOT for 1 oz (1 serving), which is probably due to the high air content in each of these puffs. Airy or not- these are yummy.

So what’s Pirate’s Booty with CARAMEL? Well, puffed rice and corn-but SWEET! I didn’t know what to expect when I dove into this bag, but boy was it a good outcome. They are sweet, crunchy and DELICIOUS! They have a light caramel flavor with a hint of saltyness. They are cute, little puffs, with a nice satisfying CRUNCH!

The Aged White Cheddar has 130 calories per serving, 5 grams of fat, 19 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of protein.

The Caramel Flavor has 120 calories per serving, 1 gram of fat, 24 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber, and 2 grams of protein.

My only complaint is that these didn’t keep me full very long, and the caramel flavor is a bit on the sugary side. But, no worries, i’ll just eat this with some fruit/with my lunch and voila! Perfection!

Aged White Cheddar-Cornmeal, Rice, one or more of the following: Sunflower, Expeller Pressed Canola or Corn Oil, Aged Cheddar Cheese, Whey, and Buttermilk.

Caramel-Corn Syrup, Corn Meal, Light Brown Sugar, White Sugar, Ground Rice, one or more of the following: Sunflower, Expeller Pressed Canola or Corn Oil, Baking Soda, Salt and Lecithin.

*added

I was also sent the Bermuda Onion, a flavor I was afraid to try. I thought it would be overpowering, but in fact, it was DELICIOUS! Oniony, and just a tad bit sweet. Certainly reccomended!

Good job Robert’s American Gourmet! I look forward to buying and reviewing more of your products!
