Pirate Brands Pirate’s Booty Snacks: Review and Giveaway

How many times are you planning a party and you walk on the chip aisle and end up purchasing the same old greasy potato chips?  You get them home only to find the bag is half empty and most of the chips are broken. So this week when you are planning your Superbowl party you don’t have to resort to those same old boring chips.  Why not try Pirate Brands?  About the company:

“Pirate Brands, a leader and manufacturer of all-natural snacks, is located in Sea Cliff, NY and has been creating healthy treasures since 1987.  The company was founded on the belief that you shouldn’t have to “snackrifice” taste and fun for health.  Pirate Brands produces deliciously baked, all-natural, trans fat and gluten free snacks that include Pirate’s Booty, Smart Puffs, Potato Flyers, and Tings.  Pirate Brands’ snacks are free from fryers and ingredients you can’t pronounce, Arrrrrr.”

Score points with the home team this Big Game day by serving a family favorite – Pirate’s Booty!  This year, intercept regular chips with a healthier alternative like Pirate’s Booty, which has half the fat and less calories (130 calories for a one ounce serving) than greasy fried potato chips.  Pirate’s Booty is a deliciously baked, all-natural snack made from puffed rice and corn.  Pirate’s Booty is also trans-fat and gluten free and…fun!

I asked my son if he liked them and he told me more please, so I got my answer!  Once you start eating them you don’t want to put the bag down.  In fact, as I was holding the bag I decided to compare it to the brand we normally buy.   I read the ingredients and needed a dictionary to decipher the words, however when reading the back of Pirate’s Booty I knew each and every ingredient.

According to the Calorie Control Council and Snack Food Association an estimated 30 million pounds of snacks including potato chips, nuts and popcorn will be consumed on Superbowl Sunday.  As you root for your favorite team, you are consuming empty calories without even knowing it. I love that the puffs are now available in half ounce packs with only 65 calories to help you with portion control and stop you from nervous eating when your Team gets behind!  With Pirate’s Booty on your table you can cut your calories without cutting flavor and that’s a TOUCHDOWN in my home!  You can use the store locator feature on the Pirate Brands website or simply purchase any of the varieties online.
