The famous cheese puffs The year was 1980 and Robert Ehrlich—a trader on Wall Street—was craving a light yet fulfilling snack to keep him going during the long afternoons on the trading room floor. While wandering around the snack food aisle at a nearby grocery store, he was stunned by what he found, noticing that most of his favorite cheese puffs didn’t actually contain much cheese. Looking closer at the label, he realized the...

Great for School Lunches

My daughter absolutely loves these puffs and it is a great alternative to potato chips!

- Jenelle

I wouldn't know

I honestly would not know if these are tasty or not. I'm half a month in and still waiting on my order.....with no help from thrive. Thanks guys! Keep up the amazing work!

Lunch packing

These are delicious and I love the 1/2oz size package. They are perfect for lunch boxes.

- Caitlin

Healthy mom

Great product and a great price. Having them individually packaged makes it a breeze when having to count carbs for my child

Much Healthier Than Cheetos

Growing up I ate a lot of Cheetos and once I found Pirate's Booty, I was hooked. The ticket for me was that these are Non-GMO and Gluten Free. You cannot say that about Cheetos of any variety.

A lot of people in my family avoid gluten and these are a go to for them. Trans fats are also a priority in my family and these don't have any! These are great for car rides or a child's mid day snack.

PS- These are vegetarian! No animal fats!

Love Love Love these puffs. I only thought they came in the 1oz size but the smaller 1/2oz will be much better for packing in my lunch.

- Cindy

Kids love them

I buy these for my children because they are the healthy cheese puff alternative. They like them because they taste great. It's important to me that they contain real cheese, and not a cheese byproduct of some sort.

I also love that they are gluten free so that both of my kids can enjoy them. These little packs are perfect for lunches!

- E. Martel

Better than Cheetos

Once I tasted these the first time I never ate cheetos again. These are light and fluffy puffs of corn and rice that have a great taste.

The aged white cheddar flavor is so good that it makes your mouth water. I like that these come in small bags, which makes them convenient to take to work for lunch.

- J. Lightford

Makes My Life Easier

These are super delicious, and they've been perfect for the kids lunch bags. I want a simple way to pack their lunches in the hectic mornings, and this has worked really well. Including 12 lunch packs, I can just toss one into the kid's bags along with their sandwiches and veggies and they'll be good to go! Since the bag includes 12 little bags, that equals 4 school days for my 3 kids. My kids seem to love them, and they even ask for them on the weekends!

- Emma Elsworth

Great for Kids

I love the taste of a "light and fluffy" snack, but finding one that feels healthier than standard chips has been hard. This is a nice compromise. It has a great taste to it, and my kids even love to stick their hands into the bag and eat some. They don't leave any gross coloring on my fingers. They have a gentle cheddar taste that isn't as strong as other types of chips, but it actually lends itself well to the chips. I'll be buying more of these.

- Jamie

Delicious cheesy snack

Move over Chester, there's a new cheese snack in the house. So much better for you and tastier. I love the flavor of aged white cheddar, it has a little bit of a bite. I am a cheese-holic, so this makes me so very happy.

And, it's gluten-free, so my daughter can have them too.

- Mavis L

Lunch time snack

My kids used to be addicted to cheetos, which are some of my favorites from when I was a kid too. But cheetos are so high in fat and sugar and hydrogenated oils, that I'm surprised my kids haven't dropped dead.

These are lighter, crunchier and have a subtle cheese taste that doesn't leave that orange gunk on your fingers. And they're much healthier too. A guilt-free snack that my kids love to take to school.

- Hannah Rabe

No annoying kernels

My kids love Pirate Booty popcorn, probably because of the pirate on the package. But these are really good puffs, and they don't leave kernels stuck in your teeth.

They're also have way less fat and oil than white popcorn, and they don't have gluten or added cholesterol, things we grownups have to care about, even as kids stuff their faces with cheesy goodness.

- Hank R.

Great Popcorn

I love popcorn. I love cheese, so you can see where this is going. I buy these for my kids' lunch, and I'll steal a few for myself.

You can taste the aged cheddar in these puffs, and they're light and crunchy. I really like them and sneak them into movie theaters every chance I get.

- Helen Rodriguez

Great snack!

They are cheesy but not like the fluorescent orange ones, so they not only seem healthy but are. The cheddar taste is strong and delicious. Great snack! So puffy and cute. I also like the picture in the bag, it’s funny. Hide them when I take them to work otherwise everybody wants some.

- Genevieve Weaver

Great tasting, healthy snack!

These are so delicious. Plus they don't have artificial dyes and seem like a fairly healthy choice of snack food. Nice light flavor.

- N. Blair

Healthy and easy

My kid's love pirate's booty and it's the perfect snack to pack in their lunch boxes. I even enjoy it on the go too!

I feel much better giving these to my kids than regular "cheez" puffs. They're a much healthier alternative, but they still taste great. Also, they dont create the messy orange fingers that other cheese puffs do. Its a win win all around!
