PeaTos has the same question as the rest of us. Why does everything that tastes good have to be bad for us?
What sets this brand apart is they also have the answer. You can have the best of both worlds when you replace corn with peas. PeaTos brings you your traditional cheesy snacks, revitalized.
The History of PeaTos
PeaTos is inspired by a rebellious nature and a passion for snacks that taste good. PeaTo’s founders question the authoritative take of experts who decide what you “should” eat and what you “should not.” Instead, they simply want to provide snacks that are equally as fun and delicious as junk food - but don’t leave you regretting your dive into finger-licking goodness. When PeaTos decided to use peas as the base for their snacks, they introduced an alternative with even a better taste and none of the artificial ingredients.
PeaTos Company Mission
PeaTos doesn’t claim to be making vitamins or saving the world. They do, however, take great pride in creating a junk food alternative that delivers both in taste and crunch - and that’s enough for them. Shaking up the snack food industry was part of their goal, as was giving consumers a snack they can thoroughly enjoy without any of the guilt.
Benefits of PeaTos
PeaTos has no shame when it comes to enjoying the fundamentals of snacking. While providing an alternative that tastes just like the classics, there are also the following benefits:
- Made in the USA.
- PeaTos snacks offer more protein and fiber than the junk food alternative.
- Gluten-free and non-GMO.
