About This Brand

Founded in late 2006 by Mary Schulman and her mother, Snikiddy® creates products for families actively looking for healthier foods that satisfy their snack cravings. The Snikiddy brand is a portfolio of better for you snacks that are simple, wholesome real products for families. So dig in, it’s all good. Where did the name come from? Snikiddy® is a shortened (and let’s face it, easier to say) form of the word persnickety, which means choosy or picky. Growing up, Janet (Mary’s mom) and her siblings were known around school as the Snikiddy kids (a badge they wore proudly) because they always ate healthy lunches. Their mom (Grandma), ahead of her time with her passion for good health, would pack their lunch boxes full of locally grown produce and very simple foods. A teacher once referred to them as being persnickety and the kids’ version of the word (snikiddy) stuck.

Reviews For Baked Grilled Cheese Puffs

Based on 18 Reviews

Love these!

I love these delicious cheese snacks and I love that they are a healthier version of those other brands. They aren't as cheesy as some of those other brands but trust me, they are delicious!

- Wanda


This product is yummy!

- Divya


Don't try these if you have no will power! Great cheesy taste and not as messy as Cheetos.

- Lorrie

Cheesy Puff Perfection

With 2 diseases that have changed my eating habits drastically this treat is my favorite indulgence. I love, love them! Tasty, crunchy cheesy bits of yum. I buy them every order so not only do I love the flavor I love the price.

Best alternative to Cheetos Puffs

When I started eating healthier and organic a handful of years ago, I gave up Cheetos Puffs due to its GMO corn. I can't tell you how excited I was to discover how delicious these are! I add a bag to every order.

Baked grilled grrrreat


- Carol

Just OK

I guess I was expecting too much as I thought it would taste like a grilled cheese. These are just ok/average. I was not impressed.

- Natalie I

Good, not great

Good, but they don't taste like grilled cheese. They tasted like any ordinary cheese puff snack I guess. Not a bad price, so I would buy again. Just don't expect a spectacular flavor because you will be disappointed.

- Shandy

Danger Snacks

I only get a bag every now and again...because I eat the whole bag. They satisfy any cheesy, salty snack craving.

- Melody

Do taste like a grilled cheese

However, they are dry and not as cheesy.

- Leigh

Crunchy Goodness

These are very good. Cheese crunchy goodness.

- Fernanda

Addictingly delicious

Once I start I can not stop. They taste great with a cheesy not salty flavor. I like that shopping with thrive has allowed me to try so many new products and not break my budget.

- Cindy

What happened?

I have to admit, I saw a recent review talking about how all the reviewers love these...and honestly, I did. BUT...the last couple bags I received were NOT cheesy at all. I don't know if there was a mishap in the factory or something. But it needs to be addressed because these were SO good...and now they sit on my shelf getting stale because they are just plain bland. I gave them a couple chances after the first bland bag, and have not been satisfied with them since. Please fix this, Snikiddy!

- Angela

NO cheese flavor at all

I was truly disappointed in these cheese puffs. Other reviewers that gave this 5 stars obviously did not care about whether it had cheese flavor to it. These puffs were practically white with NO cheese flavor or coloring at all. Even my daughter who loves cheese puffs asked why you can't taste the cheese flavor. If you are looking for a regular corn puff snack then go ahead and buy these but if you are looking for a great cheese puff snack these surely aren't the one. My search for a great tasting, healthier cheese puff option continues.

- Nati S.

Almost too good!

I absolutely loved these! Got a few different varieties of the cheeto/cheese puff style to try, and these were by far my favorite! Definitely ordering more than one bag in my next order. :)

- Angela


These were a tasty, fun snack! Great cheesy flavor -- these just melt in your mouth.

- Alicia


Great taste! No after taste like some crunchy cheese products. Gave 4 stars instead of 5 because bag was only a third full with two-thirds air. But still an okay value for a 4oz bag.

- Charlotte


I'm giving these 5 stars, because my 2 year old can't stop eating them, he loves them! I think they are okay-not a strong cheese flavor like 'Cheetos' brand, but obviously healthier, which is good. Will buy again.
