Pirate’s Booty: A Giveaway

We are a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for us to earn fees by linking to and affiliated sites. We participate in other affiliate programs as well. For more details, please see our disclosure policy.

We discovered Pirate’s Booty about ten years ago as a baby-friendly snack that the whole family enjoyed. Now, it’s not designed for babies, but its crunchy texture was one that we all loved and one that a baby could easily eat. It was a great alternative to chips, pretzels, or popcorn that would require me to perform the Heimlich maneuver that I don’t know how to do anyhow.

Suffice it to say, Pirate’s Booty, with its great taste and healthier ingredients, became our go-to snack. Think about a cheese puff gone healthy. These puffs are baked, all-natural, and gluten-free. Very cool.

There is actually an entire line of Pirate Brand Snacks that I was not aware of. Where have I been? Here’s what the Pirate told me:

Pirate’s Booty is a deliciously baked all-natural snack made from puffed rice and corn. Pirate’s Booty is only up to 130 calories per serving, is trans-fat and gluten free and comes in great subtle flavors like Aged White Cheddar, Veggie, Sour Cream & Onion, New York Pizza, Sea Salt & Vinegar and Barbeque.

Smart Puffs are all-natural corn puffs made with real Wisconsin cheddar that are baked to perfection. Smart Puffs are trans-fat and gluten free.

Original Tings are all-natural vegan crunchy corn sticks made from the finest milled American corn. Tings are trans-fat and gluten free.

Over the last year, there have been some great coupons that have enabled us to enjoy Pirate’s Booty a little more often. But, this week, you don’t need no stinkin’ coupon. Just enter today’s giveaway!

Two readers will each win a case (24 bags) of assorted Pirate Brand snacks. Talk about some great munchies for movie night or your upcoming Super Bowl Party!

Here are the three ways you can enter to win:

  1. Leave a comment telling me your favorite snack.
  2. Blog about or tweet (@fishmama) this giveaway and bring the link back here, leaving a second comment.
  3. Subscribe to LifeasMOM in a reader or via email and leave a third comment, telling me you did so.

Giveaway will be open until Sunday night at 8 pm., PST. Winners to be chosen at random and announced next week. You must leave a valid email contact in your initial comment and respond to my email within 48 hours in order to claim your prize. US addresses only, thanks.

  87. We try to eat minimally processed foods here at my house so Pirate Booty has been a favorite kids snack for quite some time for my 3 and 5 year olds as well as myself and my husband. In our house we just call in “booty”. We get it at a little Trader Joes near my house. We went once when my son was three and he proclaimed loudly to everyone in Trader Joes that day that if he was good at the store momma would let him get some “booty”. Lets just say there were a lot of strange looks…

  88. hmm, this is a hard one, depends on the day and hour, I can crave just about anything for a snack, lol! Chips, chocolate chip cookies, muffins, chocolate, I could go on… I’ve never tried Pirate’s booty though I’ve heard rave reviews so I’d love to win some. Thanks

    Thanks, Michelle

  264. My favorite is dark chocolate truffles. My kids are like me and love sweets, but they love popcorn or apple slices with peanut butter too:)

  265. Our favorite snack (besisdes chocolate, of course) just happens to be Pirate Booty. I think it is hysterical to hear my kids (3 and 4) say, “Can I have some Booty?” How can I resist?
    I have tried, in vain, to get them to eat the veggie, so we get the Aged White Cheddar. I had no idea there were other flavors or products from them. I’ll have to check that out. Unless, of course, I win some from you!

  266. My favorite snack is popcorn with a cold glass of Rootbeer to drink!

  267. Oh, we LOVE Pirate’s Booty! It is one of our all time favorite snacks!

  268. I’m a subscriber 🙂

  269. My favorite snack right now is salt and vinegar chips – might be the pregnancy hormones though! Trail mix is a close second – one with cashews, almonds and raisins is a must and it is all that gets me through my long work mornings. 🙂

  270. Yum! Our favorite snack is chex mix. Thanks for giving us the chance to win!

  271. My current fave snack is either my homemade granola or the yogurt chips trail mix from Sprouts…both are super yummy and not TOO unhealthy!!

  272. I really like cheetos. This would be a great prize to win because our family is going to have to change our eating habits. One of our children is having many health issues and behavioral issues as well. We have been trying to adjust our food but it’s so expensive and hard. It would be great to win!!

  273. My favorite munchy snack is chex mix. I also like pirate booty and the veggie sticks from Trader Joes.

  274. I am an email subscriber.

  275. Favorite snack? I’m a nacho chip addict. If there’s an open bag in the house, it can be lunch for me. I’d love to try Pirate Snacks, so thanks for hosting the give away.

  276. I love ice cream as a snack. I try not to eat it, but I hear it whispering to me from the freezer. Somtimes it whispers all the way from the grocery store! 🙂
    I would love to try Pirate’s Booty though. I’ve had several people tell me it’s good.

  421. Depends . . . I love, love, LOVE, milk chocolate anything. However, having joined Weight Watchers for the 6th time (and only 8 pounds from goal — yeah, me!), I tend toward eating something a little healthier these days. Lately, it’s been the jumbo navel oranges from Sam’s Club — so sweet! I also like baked potato chips/doritos, string cheese with Kashi TLC crackers, Kashi chewy granola bars, or VitaTops (triple chocolate) with a squirt of whipped cream (yes, from a can).
